The Italian manager of Chelsea believes that the Los Blancos side need to spend big if they want to land the Belgium international.
Maurizio Sarri feels that the Belgium international is worth more than £100million, also he feels the club should respect his decision if he wishes to leave for the Los Blancos side after the end of this season.
Last night the Belgium star scored a brilliant brace against West Ham, and lifted Chelsea to the third spot in the premier league just over Tottenham.
His scintillating performance came amid the rumours that the Spanish giants wants to tied him up for long anticipated transfer bid.
The reports suggests that the Blues are demanding £100m for Hazard, but the manager believes he values more than the amount as he is near irreplaceable.
After last night’s game, Sarri said: “It’s too cheap,”
“We have seen every price in the last few transfer windows. I think it’s very hard to change Hazard with another player.”
The attacker just has one year contract left with Chelsea,Sarri conceded that Chelsea’s hand may be forced if he decides its the right time to leave London.
He added: “I’m sure the club doesn’t want to sell him,”
“But, of course, we all have to respect his decision. He’s in the last year of his contract [next season]. If he wants to have another experience, we’ll respect that.
“We’ll try, of course, in any way to convince him [to stay], but it’s not easy.
Question asked to Sarri, whether Hazard expressed his desire to him leave Chelsea, he elucidated:
“No, no. Not at the moment. He told me he has to decide.”
