Former Napoli manager, Maurizio Sarri has identified forwards, Eden Hazard and Willian, as the two players he wants Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, not to sell this summer.
Sarri is expected to take over from Antoine Conte as the Blues new manager this summer.
According to Catalan daily Mundo Deportivo, Sarri has communicated to the Chelsea hierarchy that he does not want Hazard and Willian to walk out of the club in the ongoing transfer window.
The report claimed that the 59-year-old has already agreed to a contract with Chelsea and has discussed the club’s transfer policy at length with the hierarchy, with only a deal between the Blues and Napoli standing between him and becoming the next manager at Stamford Bridge.
It also claimed that Sarri has already told Roman Abramovich about the two players he does not want to see leave Chelsea this summer.
However, both Hazard and Willian’s future are up for discussion with Barcelona believed to be eyeing both Chelsea stars, but Sarri has made it clear to the Chelsea leaders that he does not want either of the two to leave.
