Sarri makes big sale demand of Chelsea owner Abramovich

Maurizio Sarri is demanding Chelsea keep the squad together ahead of his appointment.

Mundo Deportivo says Sarri has told Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich not to sell Eden Hazard or Willian this summer.

Both of the Blues' star forwards have been linked with moves away to Real Madrid and Manchester United respectively.

And it appears Sarri's arrival at Stamford Bridge will be very much dependent on the futures of Hazard and Willian.

Indeed, the Italian will not join as Chelsea's new manager if the club intend to sell the pair.

Sarri is still expected to replace Antonio Conte soon, though, despite the latter taking his first pre-season training session yesterday.
