Harry Redknapp has issued a warning to Sarri that letting Hazard go will be a disaster to Chelsea but also admits that there is little the club can do since the Belgian wants to go
Hazard has been in an exceptional form this season with 8 goals and three assists in ten games and is very instrumental to the London based club.
“He’s won it and done it all at Chelsea and, if Real Madrid come, it’ll be difficult to hang onto him in all honesty,” the former Tottenham boss told talkSport
“If they lose him it’s a massive blow. They’ve started the season in great form. They’ve put themselves in a good position where they can be challenging.
“A lot of people at the start of the season probably didn’t fancy Chelsea as contenders, but the start they’ve had puts them in the picture.
“So to lose Hazard would be a disaster. Without him they’re nowhere near the same team – he’s that good.
“They’ve got to do everything in their power to hang onto him, but at the end of the day it’s going to be down to the player.
“It will be difficult to hang onto him when Real Madrid come calling.”
Real Madrid are toiling this season as they have gone over four games without finding the back of the net and may consider a move for Hazard this January. On joining Real Madrid, Hazard explained he could make one final move in his career.
“Sometimes in my head I wake up in the morning and think I want to go,” he explained.
“Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January.
“Do I have one big move left in my career? Yes that’s why I spoke after the World Cup and I said that I think it is time to change because I played a great World Cup.
“I am really in the game, I am playing good football at the moment. Real Madrid is the best club in the world.
“I don’t want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club. We will see.
“I don’t want to talk about this every day. I don’t have time but we will talk about my future soon. I think so.
“It is also when you have a dream and you want to make it happen. It is like I have said a lot of times, if I leave I will be happy.
“I know if I stay I will be happy. It is not like, if I go I am happy and if I stay that I am unhappy.”
He is also afraid of being on the bad side of the Chelsea faithful
Hazard said. “I want what’s good for me, but I want what’s good for the club because the club has given me everything. I don’t want to say: ‘Yes, I am signing a new contract’ and then in the end I don’t end up signing”
“I could talk now,” he said. “If they come to me, then I will talk. I don’t want to say that I am not talking with the club or the owner. I am talking a lot with them.
“I am happy and I don’t need anything,” he said. “It is not trophies. Of course, when you play, you want to win but I just want to enjoy things on the pitch, like I am at the moment. Then I am happy.”
For Hazard though, it will either be playing for the club of his dreams, or playing for the club that gave him everything under a manager that plays the dominant football he loves
