Ex-Chelsea star Burley: Hazard needs Real Madrid move like Ronaldo did

Gianfranco Zola and Maurizio Sarri

Amidst Antoni Conte's exit as manager and the subsequent introduction of former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri to take his place, Chelsea Football Club are facing the very real possibility of a sizable overhaul to its roster, including the possible exits of star winger Eden Hazard and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

The Blues have also been linked with AS Roma's Alisson Becker, but the Brazil global is closer to a move to Liverpool as things stand.

Chelsea are in the market for a new first-choice goalkeeper and Roma's Alisson is on their shortlist.

It comes amid reports that Liverpool have offered around £62.5m for the Brazil global, who has also been touted as a possible replacement for Courtois.

And he might get the opportunity to stay in London, even if he decides to leave Arsenal, according to a shock report from Sky Sports' Kaveh Solhekol on Tuesday evening.

Chelsea sold the 36-year-old to the Gunners for around £10 million three years ago after losing his place to Courtois.

He has two years left on his contract with Chelsea, but he has indicated a desire to move on for a new challenge.

The veteran faces heavy competition from new arrival Bernd Leno, who signed from Bayer Leverkuzen last month. (Getty Images) Cech won four Premier League titles with Chelsea.

Chelsea want Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios, reports in Argentina claim.

Chelsea finished fifth in the Premier League past year, missing out on Champions League soccer in 2018-19 while winning the FA Cup.

Chelsea are also interested in Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel while AC Milan's Gianluigi Donnarumma remains on the club's radar with Courtois expected to head to Madrid this summer.
