Hazard has flirted with a Blues exit a number of times down the years, but has ended up staying loyal to them.
Certainly, there is no one in the current Chelsea squad who could replace the 28-year-old - who has been at Chelsea now for seven years - so the market will have to be entered into.
However, the interest in Hazard remains for Perez, and the fact Zidane and the Belgian have a huge mutual respect - something they have spoken about - only seems to confirm the likelihood of a deal this summer.
As per a report from ESPN, Premier League giants Chelsea fear that they will not be able to hold on to Belgian wing wizard Eden Hazard beyond the summer, amid rising interest from Real Madrid and have chose to demand a transfer fee of at least £100 million from the reigning European champions.
"Everyone's house is for sale if someone offers you twice the price for it".
Chelsea fear there is little they can do to stop Hazard going, but until the ban situation is sorted out, they cannot properly get going on working on replacements.
"I think it's a sad situation for English football if we lose a prestigious talent like that, because he is a very talented player and I don't think Real Madrid and Barcelona are bigger clubs than the English clubs anymore".
"We should be able to keep them at the Chelseas, Manchester Uniteds and Manchester Citys of the world".
Speaking in a news conference ahead of Chelsea's clash with Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League round of 16, Sarri insisted he is not dwelling on the uncertainty surrounding Hazard's future but reiterated that he will respect the Belgian's decision.
