The management of Chelsea are reportedly not happy with the way in which manager Maurizio Sarri has handled the Callum Hudson-Odoi situation.
Things do not look good for Chelsea at the moment. Not only are they not title contenders, but it is hard to even see them finishing in the top four this season judging by the way that they are currently playing. Though they started this season strongly, Maurizio Sarri’s side’s 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City last weekend was their second humiliating defeat within the space of two weeks. They also went down 4-0 against Bournemouth late in January.
Former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has revealed that he would love to see Blues ace Eden Hazard joining him at Real Madrid. Belgian international Courtois joined Madrid last summer and has established himself as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper in the La Liga.

The 24-year-old Kepa arrived at Stamford Bridge last summer as a highly-rated product from Spanish club for a world-record £72 million fee which made him the most expensive goalkeeper in history.
The contracts of Chelsea reserve keepers Willy Caballero and Rob Green are set to expire next summer. Cabellero is currently 37-years-old while Green is 39-years-old. Ideally, the club should offload both veterans and look to bring in a younger keeper to provide valuable competition and cover for first choice Kepa Arrizabalaga.
