In the past two-three transfer periods it was Real Madrid who got heavily linked with a move for Eden Hazard. These days, with Barcelona uncertain over the future of Neymar, it’s they who have their name in the same headlines with ‘interested in Hazard’.
He is very happy to stay with us and to play for Chelsea. I don’ t know anything about this situation
Antonio Conte told reporters when asked about the rumors/reports that link Barcelona with a move for his player.
In the past I read a lot of stories about Hazard with Real Madrid, and now Barcelona. This is the transfer market and we must understand this
the Chelsea coach said, looking unfazed by the rumors.
The Belgium international got seriously injured while on international duty, and he’s working on returning to action. He has been unable to join Chelsea’s preseason, he will definitely miss the start of the new season, and Conte said he won’t rush his return, in fear of causing an even bigger problem.
It is difficult to say when he will be back. After a bad injury, after ankle surgery, it is not easy to program the date to come back
the Italian manager said.
