Antonio Conte responds to Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard


Blues Boss Antonio Conte says its normal for rumors to circulate and try unsettle players,

Real Madrid bid to sign Eden Hazard has been the latest craze by the mainstream media.

Hazard is linked with a £100million move to Real, this all began because Zinedine Zidane is Eden’s idol.

Conte says it is flattering for his players to have admirers, however, he insists Hazard is happy at Stamford Bridge.

“The only thing I can say is Eden is a Chelsea player, our player,” the Italian said.

“We are happy with him. He is happy with us. I don’t see a problem.

“It’s normal, it’s logical in this part of the season, to start rumours about our player… to try to create difficulty in the mind of the players.

“We have great experience to face this situation. Also my players have this experience.

“If Chelsea players are requested by the other teams, it means they’re doing very well.

“I’m very happy. It means I’m doing a great job.”

Hazard is under contract until June 2020.

Chelsea captain John Terry, who has not made a Premier League start since September, is out of contract this summer.

Rumours have begun of defender Terry being offered another one-year contract extension.
