He has been on the transfer market rumours for at least two years, but Eden Hazard reveals he won’t move from Stamford Bridge at the moment as he is happy at Chelsea:

“I’m fine here. We’ll see what happens in a year or two,” he told RMC Sport.

“Leave this year? I will not leave. Everybody knows what I said after the World Cup, but I’m happy here.”

The Premier League and Football League voted to shut the transfer window before the start of the English top-flight season, which kicked off on 10 August.

However, the change did not affect most of the European clubs expect Italian ones, as the transfer window there closed last Friday, who can still sign players – including Premier League ones – until their respective deadlines later in the month:

“The transfer window in England is over. Clubs cannot sign players,” said Hazard.

“It would be a little odd if they sell me now while they can’t recruit a replacement.”

Hazard, who has won five major trophies since joining Chelsea in summer 2012, added he could see that “the fans still love me” from the reception he received during the Blues’ 3-2 win over Arsenal yesterday.

The winger still has two years to run on the five-year contract he signed with the Blues back in February 2015.

After confirming that Maurizio Sarri will become new Chelsea boss following the last legal details to be discussed on his deal, Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis claimed that Jorginho is heading to Stamford Bridge as well, revealing the Italian international rejected an offer from Man City to join the Blues:

Jorginho in the Sarri deal? These are separate matters”

“I accepted Manchester City offer for him two weeks ago, but I will have to apologize with them: if the player prefers to live in London rather than in Manchester I can understand him, then if Chelsea proposes him better wages I can understand him even more and I cannot do anything”

“But Jorginho at Chelsea is not linked to the Sarri deal”

As we wrote yesterday, Nice manager Patrick Vieira gave midfielder Jean-Michael Seri permission to reach London.

It seemed Seri was very close to a move to Chelsea, but today it emerged the French club have agreed a fee not with the Blues, but with Fulham who will pay £18m.

The player has already applied for a work visa, but he has yet to agree a deal with Fulham, so Chelsea can still hope to make a better offer to convince Seri.

According to various reports in Italy and England, in particular by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea are trying to “beat” Manchester City in the race to sign SS Napoli midfielder Jorginho.

The player already has an agreement with Pep Guardiola‘s team, but the two clubs haven’t agreed a fee to complete the midfielder’s move to Etihad Stadium.

So now Chelsea are offering more money than Manchester City to sign Jorginho, a part of which, as it is understood, would also be used to pay the clause and free Maurizio Sarri from his contract with SS Napoli.

Moreover, midfielder Jean-Michael Seri has been reportedly spotted in London ahead of a potential move to Chelsea. And this could make a move for Jorginho more unlikely.

Juventus‘ defender Daniele Rugani has been linked to a move to Chelsea during this summer transfer window.

According to some reports in the last few days, the two clubs have agreed a fee of £35m for the transfer, but, Rugani’s agent Daniele Torchia explained the deal is not yet done and one of the main reason is the uncertainty surrounding the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as the new Chelsea manager.

It is obvious to say that the Sarri question must first be resolved, then proceed with the negotiations and make them more or less concrete,” Torchia told Sportitalia.

However, talks are still ongoing between the two clubs as it is also understood Willian wants to leave Stamford Bridge if Antonio Conte remains the Blues’ manager.

Belgian goalkeeeper Thibaut Courtois has just one year left on his current contract with Chelsea and he has been linked many times with a possible move to Real Madrid.

Speaking to Belgian outlet Sporza, Courtois himself insisted he will decide on his future after Russia 2018 World Cup.

I have a certain preference, I already have ideas in my head, but I have moved everything until after the World Cup,” Courtois said. “If I want to go to Madrid? I do not know we’ll see. But I should still make a choice that is.”

In any case, the major factor in Courtois’ decision about where he will play next season, will be his family: “What is most important is my children. My daughter is three years old, my son is a year old, and I have not seen them for a year and a half. the Belgian goalkeeper admitted. “Facetime is beautiful, but seeing them grow up is something else. So my children will play an important role in my decision”.


Speaking after his 30-minute appearance for Chelsea in last Saturday 3-2 win over Arsenal, Blues midfielder Mateo Kovacic told Sport Klub TV: "I am happy...
