Hazard on Real Madrid rumours: "I think this is goodbye"

"We have been trying to make Hazard a Real Madrid player for several years", he said.

"Hazard going to Real Madrid would be a huge step for him - and he deserves it.", Petit told Paddy Power.

"Today I need only to speak about the final and my players need only for me to speak about the final", Sarri said ahead of the Europa League final. Some critics would argue however that a third-place Premier League finish 26 points adrift of champions Manchester City and a chance of winning Europe's second-tier trophy is unsatisfactory for a club with Russian-backed Chelsea's budget.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has let slip a little of his nerves with his behaviour in training, according to Blues legend Ron "Chopper" Harris. So now I am really very happy with them.

Jovic's move is reportedly already agreed and the La Liga side are expecting full back Mendy to follow the striker and Hazard to the Bernabeu.

Very few at Chelsea have bought into Sarri's football philosophy, despite the team performing relatively well this season.

It is claimed that the former Napoli boss could be announced as the new Juventus coach next week. The Italian has at times seemed frustrated and the incident in training yesterday may have been his frustration boiling over.

Only 6,000 tickets have been allocated to the fans of Arsenal and Chelsea for the final, played in the 68,700-capacity Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan's capital Baku.

The Europa League final is here.

Olivier Giroud will be expected to line up against his former club after an impressive campaign in the Europa League, however, the Chelsea boss is yet to confirm or deny whether the France global will play from the start. "Our objective is to achieve that". He has hit nine of Arsenal's past 16 goals in all competitions, which makes the Betfair Sportsbook's 12-5 about him to be his team's first goalscorer in the final a tempting proposition.
