Chelsea demand top-four finish without Eden Hazard

September 6, 2019

Chelsea will demand a top-four finish from their new manager next season despite losing star winger Eden Hazard.

The Blues are expected to lose manager Maurizio Sarri to Juventus after a debut season which saw the club finish in third place and claim the Europa League trophy.

Hazard has already left Stamford Bridge for Ral Madrid and will not be able to be replaced if Chelsea’s transfer ban is upheld.

Still, the club wants their new boss to secure a top-four finish next season, according to The Sun.

Derby County manager Frank Lampard remains the favourite to succeed Sarri.
