Maurizio Sarri is planning to make Eden Hazard the captain of Chelsea this season as the Italian tries to keep the Belgian at Stamford Bridge, according to the Mirror.

Reports have suggested that Real are not tempted to meet Chelsea's £200m asking price for Eden Hazard this summer, but that may not stop business being conducted between the two clubs.

Willian, who had an impressive 2018 FIFA World Cup with Brazil, looked set to join the Blaugrana in this transfer window, but after numerous bids were rejected, the Catalan club seemingly opted to sign Bordeaux winger Malcom instead.

The Brazilian had been the subject of interest from Manchester United and Barcelona in recent weeks.

Chelsea appear to be turning their attention away from Gonzalo Higuain in order to pursue the signature of his Juventus team-mate.

The Belgium stopper has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Chelsea have reportedly submitted a second offer for the centre-back, expected to be around £40m.
