Eden Hazard will hold crunch talks with boss Maurizio Sarri when he returns to Chelsea tomorrow.
Real Madrid are lining up a mega-money swoop for the Belgian superstar after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.
Sarri spoke with Hazard, 27, over the phone on Thursday — but the topic of his future was not discussed.
Instead, they will have face-to-face talks over the next few days, with Sarri hopeful of keeping his talisman.
Speaking ahead of today’s Community Shield clash with Manchester City, the Italian said: “I talked with him.
“We didn’t talk about his future. We talked only about, ‘Can I arrive back on Monday instead of Sunday?’
“In this moment there is no problem for Hazard.”
Sarri will also have talks with keeper Thibaut Courtois, who has been linked with a move to Spanish giants Real, too.
Courtois’s agent has urged Chelsea to stop messing about and let the keeper go to Real.
Chelsea have so far refused to do business with Real for their £40million-rated stopper despite Courtois making it clear he wants to move to the Bernabeu.
The 26-year-old has told the club he wants to relocate to Spain to be close to his two young children, but the Blues are unwilling to meet his requests and seem intent on making him stay at Stamford Bridge.
The club appear to be holding out for more money for Courtois – yet risk losing him on a free transfer next summer when his contract expires.
