Details of the conversation Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri held with Eden Hazard on Thursday have emerged.
According to the Sun UK, the talk did not revolve around the future of the talisman. Instead, it bothered on when Hazard will resume to Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian skipper has been on a break after an impressive World Cup outing in Russia.
However, the Madrid-bound midfielder will discuss the issue of his future with Sarri when he returns on Monday. Sarri had earlier noted that it wasn’t part of his style to discuss the future of players on phone.
