With the coming of the new Manager at Chelsea F.C., there are real hopes as far as retaining the services of the trio of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Willian. This is mainly as a result of the different approach of the new Manager to football as he is believed to be a fan of attacking football as against former Manager Conte’s more reserved style.
As a matter of fact, the new Manager Maurizio Saari is quite confident that the trio will remain at Chelsea in spite of the interest of top notch European soccer giants in prying away these players from Chelsea. Top amongst these clubs are Real Madrid and F.C. Barcelona.
The latter is rumoured to have made a £55m plus bid for Willian which the Chelsea Management promptly rejected. Real Madrid on the other hand are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of Golden Glove winner Courtois and his Belgium team-mate Hazard.
The three players in question were however absent from Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Perth Glory in Sarri’s first game in charge of the Blues on Monday.
In the event of Chelsea somehow losing the services of this trio, new Manager Maurizio Saari is bound to have a very shaky start to his first season in charge of the Blues and so he is very desperate to ensure that they remain at Chelsea F.C.
According to him; “It doesn’t depend only on me. But I am confident they will stay.”
He was asked if he had spoken to any of the trio since replacing Antonio Conte. He simply replied; “I like to talk to a person face to face.”
