Antonio Conte said there’s no certainty whether in-form Chelsea forward Eden Hazard will be at the club next season in the midst of growing transfers speculation surrounding the Belgian and a link with European champions Real Madrid.
The 26-year-old has enjoyed another fine Premier League crusade as Chelsea close in on the title and it has supposedly alarmed LaLiga giants Madrid, who are prepared to take the Belgian international to the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I think that it’s impossible for me to take this responsibility, but not only for Eden but for every single player,” Conte said ahead of Sunday’s trip to Everton.
“In this situation, it’s the club who have the final decision.
“I don’t think that this idea is in the mind of the club [to sell Hazard]. I think we have to improve the team, to reinforce the team. But you know that, in football, there is also the will of the player. The future, I haven’t a crystal ball, no.”
Hazard is contracted to Chelsea until 2020 season, however, Chelsea manager knows anything can happen in football.
“I think Eden is very happy to stay with us and work with us,” he continued. “I think his family is very happy to stay here and play for this team, for this club.
“The fans love him and I think there are a lot of positive things that bring him to stay here and to try to reach the best with this club.
“Don’t forget, the target of this club is to try to win in every competition we play in.”
