EDEN HAZARD risks being rested for the clash between Chelsea and the Europa League against Slavia Prague on Thursday evening.
The Belgian scored a man-of-the-match performance scoring two goals while the Blues beat West Ham 2-0 in the Premier League clash on Monday.
It was just another reminder of the extraordinary talent that Hazard has, which alerted Real Madrid.
It is believed that the Spanish giants are plotting a £ 100m move for the 28-year-old this summer, which has only been a year for his current Chelsea contract.
This could see Londoners forced to cash in on their main character rather than lose it for nothing – but Blues fans would be furious.
Maurizio Sarri seems ready to give Hazard a break for the Europa League quarter-final clash in the Czech Republic.
FIVE OR SIX CHANGES
And it doesn't seem the worst idea since Chelsea's next match is against the title that chases Liverpool over the weekend.
Speaking at a press conference, Sarri said: "This morning he [Hazard] I was tired like the other players with 90 minutes and so I want to wait until tomorrow morning and I will decide.
"Slavia played Saturday but we played Monday, I don't know why, we have to change five or six players."
Wonderkid Callum Hudson-Odoi could be another player at rest for the European game.
The 18-year-old started Chelsea's last two matches in the Premier League, when Sarri finally succumbed to fan pressure.
Ross Barkley, of great prestige from the bench against West Ham, Mateo Kovacic and Pedro, could have the chance to shine.
Marcos Alonso could also be back from the injury.
