All summer-long Hazard has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
"The only club I knew that really made an official offer for me was Barcelona".
"Chelsea wants for the best players to stay", said Luiz.
Chelsea Unveil New Head Coach Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge on July 18, 2018 in London, England.
"The future of Hazard, Willian (below) and the rest of the players defend on the club, not just me", continues Sarri.
This was an easy decision for Chelsea as they knew they would be parting with Antonio Conte come seasons end.
Courtois' agent Christophe Henrotay has claimed his client, a former Atletico Madrid loanee, wishes to return to the Spanish capital where his children live ; and Sarri will address his future once he returns to the club on Monday.
"Of course, the beginning is always a little more hard to adapt to a new style of play, which changes everything, but we have everything we need to improve, to continue working and start the season well".
The other condition of Courtois being granted a transfer is that Chelsea secure a replacement before the transfer deadline on Thursday. 'It's all delicate. I'm relaxed at the moment'.
While Sarri is required to talk up their hopes of getting their season off to a flier, this 59-year-old tactician may well be offering these comments for public consumption in a bid to disguise a less palatable reality.
Chelsea made one of the signings of the summer by bringing in manager Maurizio Sarri.
If Courtois tomorrow says to me the same [as the agent], then I have to speak with my player, of course.
