Chelsea coach Joe Cole believes that Eden Hazard will resist the advances of Real Madrid this summer. The Belgian’s current contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire at the end of next season and he has yet to put pen to paper on a new deal. This essentially means that if the Belgian does not agree to a new deal to keep him at Stamford Bridge soon, the Blues will have to sell him this summer or they could risk losing one of the world’s premier players for a bargain fee next summer.

Chelsea have blown hot and cold this season under Maurizio Sarri. Should the worst-case scenario occur and the Blues fail to secure major silverware as well as finish outside the top four, it is likely that the Italian tactician will be sacked.
