Former Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly has played down the significance of the club losing Eden Hazard.
The Belgian has been enjoying a hugely productive season and has been linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
But Desailly is confident the club would recover if Hazard left Stamford Bridge.
‘We are still in the season, no player is more important than the club,’ he told Goal. ‘Even when [Didier] Drogba left, one of the great players, the spirit of the club continued. They continued to win.
‘We will be sad if Hazard has to go but I am sure that Roman Abramovich is still passionate about the club. He will bring in another player that can allow the club to be at the same level again.’
