Maurizio Sarri wants Eden Hazard to be “happy” wherever the Chelsea forward’s future lies.
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash at Manchester City, Sarri said on Friday: “I speak every day with Eden, but I speak with Eden about his position on the pitch. I will be really very happy with him if he will want to stay because in my opinion, he’s the best in Europe. But it’s up to him, I think. I want to see him happy. And so, he has to decide.”
City lead the table on goal difference from Liverpool, with both sides 12 points clear of Chelsea entering this weekend’s fixtures.
Sarri said: “I think we will be able to fight for the top four this season. No more, I think. We can win something of course, but in the Premier League there is a fight between Liverpool and Man City. At the moment Man City is the best team in Europe.”
