Maurizio Sarri says Eden Hazard does not need a move to Spain to get trophies and can win “everything” if he stays at Chelsea.
Hazard suggested last week he may have to leave Stamford Bridge for La Liga to fulfil his ambition of winning the Ballon d’Or, given the last ten winners have all been based in Spain.
The 27-year-old also said he is torn about renewing his contract at Chelsea – which expires in 2020 – or achieving his childhood dream of moving to Real Madrid.
When asked about Hazard’s future, Sarri said: “It will be very important for us if he remains. I think also that he can win everything, also the Ballon d’Or, here.
“For example, if Chelsea will be able to win the Champions League and the Belgium national team will be able to win the European cup (Championships), he will be able to win everything – without playing in Spain.”
