Real will play a similar game this time around knowing full well that Chelsea run the risk of losing Hazard for nothing in the summer of 2020.
According to the latest news, Blues fans will be glad to hear that manager Maurizio Sarri has stated that Chelsea is preparing to offer a bumper new contract for club talisman Eden Hazard immediately.
"I want Eden here, but I want him here if he wants to stay here. I know very well that there are discussions between the club and the manager of Eden every week".
"It's very important because he's such a quality player", he said.
Sarri has publicly urged the club to keep hold of the experienced duo, although he accepts matters have been complicated by the fact Luiz and Fabregas want more than the 12-month increases Chelsea usually offer to players over 30. Now on loan in West London from Los Blancos, Kovacic doesn't want to return to the Bernabéu when his temporary Chelsea deal ends in the summer, and the six-time English champions would like the Croatian midfielder to stay on.

The main aim of the mission was a success, delivering the supplies to the orbiting space lab. It's not every Friday that a 156-foot-tall SpaceX rocket booster is towed to Port Canaveral.
"So if there is something new, the club will call me immediately".
"This goal was good but we have the kind of players that when (we are) in short spaces we can do one-touch and give and goes".
But apart from Hazard, Sarri also risks losing veterans David Luiz and Cesc Fabregas.
He thinks that this could be the trick to keep the maestro at the club because he would then have hope that the Londoners have the ability to take on the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
