Chelsea chiefs facing several senior contract decisions going into the New Year.
Eden Hazard's contract expires in the summer of 2020 meaning next summer will be the final chance to cash in or risk losing him for nothing. But the Belgian isn't alone.
Cesar Azpilicueta, Willian and Pedro also have contracts until 2020.
The futures of David Luiz and Cesc Fabregas have been called into question with just a year left on their current deals.
Luiz, 31, has been a permanent fixture in Sarri's defence having been shunned by Conte but Fabregas has yet to play a minute of action following the arrivals of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.
