Maurizio Sarri waiting for Courtois & Hazard news with optimism
- The Belgians are yet to report back for Chelsea season
- Sarri stays cautiously optimistic about their futures
Chelsea may have been beaten by Man City in the Community Shield but it looks like there's time for positives from Maurizio Sarri. At least, he appears to know more than a wider audience.
Asked about his stars' future, he said on BT: ''I have already talked to Courtois and Hazard two days ago [giggles]. I think there is more good news than bad news.''
Speaking of Courtois in particular, he added: "I am not interested in the agent. I want to hear Courtois. If Courtois tomorrow he tells me the same, I have to speak to my club of course because I want only players with high motivation.''
Thibaut Courtois remains non-committal about his future although his agent openly favours a Real Madrid transfer. Eden Hazard is yet to address the public to clarify his future.
Do you believe the two will ultimately stay?
