A new era at Chelsea is officially underway after Maurizio Sarri was unveiled on Wednesday afternoon.

Eden Hazard needs to follow Cristiano Ronaldo's lead and "propel himself to the next level" by trading Premier League football at Chelsea for Real Madrid, says Craig Burley.

Courtois recently suggested that Chelsea would likely have to improve their wage offer if they want him to stay as his performances in the World Cup have increased his value.

Speaking at his unveiling as Chelsea manager, Italian Sarri told a media conference of his disinterest in the transfer market.

"Clearly, we would like to keep the strongest players", he said.

"This is what any manager wants to do, this is what any club wants to do", said the 59-year-old. But we will have to see how the transfer market goes.

"I think that I am one of few managers who is bored by [the] transfer market. But I feel happy at Chelsea, it's not that I necessarily want to leave".

Some could be slow moving and produce very heavy rain, leaving to flooding in urban, small stream and poor drainage areas. Highs upper 70s and low 80s. "It sounds better than 106", Villanueva said , "but it's still pretty hot".

There were a few translation issues and things will be much clearer between fans and Sarri when he starts conducting interviews in English as he promises he will do eventually.

"I can not name any names because I don't know who these people are", he added.

"I spoke with the club and ideally I think that a pinch of quality is lacking in our central midfield for a certain type of play. Otherwise they're at a very high level".

Conte was sacked last Friday, with Sarri announced soon after.

With players involved in the World Cup yet to join the club for pre-season training, Sarri will need time to embed his philosophy at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio reached incredible results here. Our task as managers is growing the players we have.

"At the end of the transfers (window) I will understand which type of game is the most suitable".

"I can not claim to come here and change 20 players".

"After six wonderful years at Chelsea, it might be time to discover something different", he said. "They must not be changed".

Despite having won no silverware Sarri was named Serie A coach for the 2016/17 season and has praised Conte for what he had achieved in his two year spell at the club.

He also refused to be drawn on any conversations with owner Roman Abramovich.

"I would like a player to be with me on the pitch for four or five days to see what the situation is".

"I am an extremely open person, I do not have these kind of problems, I hope I will show this when I am working here and living here".
