Hazard is Chelsea's best, we need him - Cesc on Real Madrid target

As for Kiko Casilla, he expects to complete his contract and to stay at Real Madrid for another season, which would likely be as the third-choice goalkeeper if Courtois joins and if Keylor Navas stays too.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has admitted that he is trying to stop club star Eden Hazard from leaving the club this summer.

Across his six-year spell with Chelsea, the Belgian has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge on numerous occasions but another year without Champions League football could be the final straw. We all know that I've always felt well at Chelsea, so.

Hazard has been at Chelsea since 2012 and has been instrumental as the Blues have won a pair of Premier League titles and an FA Cup.

"I won't lie, I speak to him often", said Fabregas.

"For us, he's our most important player".

Following the departure of Antonio Conte and appointment of Maurizio Sarri as coach, Chelsea are in a state of flux, but Fabregas is adamant Hazard is the one player they must keep. He knows the fans love him and he's a player we love to play with.

Chelsea could make a move for Nabil Fekir if Willian and Eden Hazard leave in the summer transfer window.

"Before that I would also like a player to come on the pitch for four or five days with me to have a clear idea of what the plan is".

"I think he had a really big influence on my development as player, exactly because of that - he teaches a lot about the game and how you see the game on the field of play, and that helped me to grow".
