Antonio Conte believes Chelsea are a big enough club to fight off Real Madrid’s interest in Eden Hazard.
The Italian believes that Eden Hazard, a star man for Chelsea this season, having played a key part in Chelsea’s rise to the top of the table, is happy at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking after various media linked Hazard with a move to Real Madrid, Conte claimed he sees no problem currently.
This is not the first time the talented Belgian has attracted interest from Real, having been linked with moves to both Madrid and Barcelona in the past.
Conte however believes Hazard will be going nowhere, and will remain in West London.
He said: “It’s very important [to establish] the will of the player. If the player is happy and the player knows he will stay in a great team with great ambition, I don’t see any problem.
“Also, this club can call [itself a] Real Madrid. We started to build something important and the ambitions of this club are top; the same as mine, as my players.
“He’s a young player and he has a lot of improvement in his path as a footballer. I’m sure about this; that you’d be staying in the right place, in a great club, with great ambition.
“To win the Premier League is a great challenge and a more difficult challenge, for a player or a coach, than all the other leagues. This league is really top in all aspects.
“The only thing I can say is Eden is a Chelsea player, our player. We are happy with him. He is happy with us. I don’t see a problem.”
