Chelsea chase Richarlison as Eden Hazard plays down Real Madrid talk’.

 Watford playmaker Richarlison has fuelled rumours he is ready to quit Vicarage Road after the Brazilian posted a cryptic social message in the wake of Marcos Silva’s shock sacking. 

The Hornets dismissed Silva on Sunday morning citing Everton’s alleged approach for the Portuguese as the ‘catalyst’ for their decision. 

The club announced Brazilian Javi Gracia as their new manager late on Sunday evening, but the former Malaga and Rubin Kazan manager’s first job might be do persuade his fellow countryman to stay at the club. 

 Richarlison posted an angry-faced emojii in a tweet sent just hours after Silva’s exit was confirmed on Sunday.

The 24-year-old has impressed since arriving in the Premier League last summer, scoring five goals and registering five assists in 24 appearances.

Before he left Silva admitted interest from other clubs was affecting his star player’s performance: “Everybody is talking about him. Arsenal, Chelsea and all these things are normal in one professional career.”

“We need to support him as he’s a boy and needs to understand during one season everything can happen.”

 Rumours around a move to Stamford Bridge could intensify this week after Eden Hazard admitted he had reprimanded his dad for joking the Belgian was holding out for an offer from Real Madrid.

The 27-year-old joked his father was in trouble for referring to Real Madrid in an interview with  Le Soir before confirming he plans to begin negotiations with 

 “My dad says some bad things,” Hazard told reporters after Chelsea’s comfortable 4-0 win over Brighton. “Yes. I talked with him [to tell him off], no, no worries,” said Hazard.

“I’m focused with Chelsea. I’ve got two years contract left and I’m happy here. Like I said 10 times before, I want to finish this year and then we’ll see. But I’m happy here.” 

In other news, a picture that is alleged to show Alexis Sanchez in his new Manchester United shirt has been leaked online.

 
 The image, tweeted by the editor of the Manchester Evening News, appears to show Sanchez taking a selfie on the Old Trafford pitch hours after completing his medical.

The picture also suggests Sanchez will wear the famous no7 shirt previously worn by Manchester United legends such as Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Michael Owen. 

 Sanchez’s Chile teammate Arturo Vidal has ruled out any possibility of him leaving in January.

However the 30-year-old has insisted he is focussed on remaining in Bavaria. 

“I hope to win the Champions League and then we’ll see what happens, but at this moment I am 100 per cent at Bayern and there is no chance of changing teams.”

 Not happy content with the imminent arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, ESPN is suggesting Arsene Wenger wants to bring out-of-favour PSG midfielder Lucas Moura to the Emirates.

The Brazilian has previously been linked with a move to Manchester United but those rumours have cooled since Alexis Sanchez became their number one priority. 

According to ESPN, sources close to the player insist Arsenal have made enquiries into signing the playmaker.

Moura said recently: “I have offers but I cannot talk about them. I like English football very much, it is truly one of the best leagues in the world.”
