Chelsea 'powerless to prevent Eden Hazard exit'


Pressed further on whether Pogba would be a shrewd addition, the Brazil global said: "A world-class player at his level can play in any team".

Despite the insistence of the journalists to trick him into responding if he would like to play a Clasico against the Catalans, in reference to a Madrid move, Pogba said: "I am just speaking about the game, nothing else".

And Real will pounce for France star Pogba if United drop back into the Europa League - as they did under Louis van Gaal in 2015-16, the season before Jose Mourinho's arrival.

"(We will try to persuade him) that we are trying to improve, to become one of the best teams in England, and as a effect in Europe, but I think I have to respect his decision".

"But this is a question for the president, and for Neymar himself".

Manchester United players could see their salaries cut by as much as 25 per cent if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season, the UK Sun reports.

Asked what power he has to keep Hazard at the club, Sarri conceded: "I can not do anything (to keep him), because the club agrees with me, but if Eden wants to make another experience, it is very hard to keep him, I think. But a great player like him would be an automatic pick in any team". He said recently he was happy in Paris, so we must respect him, and his club.

Casemiro is also adamant that none of those already on Madrid's books are concerned about their own futures as links to potential new recruits intensify.

"Eden Hazard is obviously one of the best players in the Premier League, a player with probably the most quality".

The 27-year-old has been in terrific form for the Reds this season, scoring 17 goals in 31 Premier League appearances. "Maybe we have not had a good season, but we are all together in this".
