With everyone unsure of Eden Hazard’s future, as Real Madrid are bent on making the Chelsea star a Galactico this summer, Antonio Conte has revealed that the Belgian is well-loved by Chelsea fans and the aim of the club is to buy players to boost the squad and not to sell.

“I don’t think this idea is the mind of the club,” Conte said. “Because we have to improve the team, to reinforce the team, but you know in football there is also the will of the player but also I think Eden is very happy to be at Chelsea and stay and work with us. I can say this but for the future I do not have a crystal ball.

“The fans love him and there a lot of positive things that bring him to stay here and try to reach the best with this club, because the target for this club is to try to win in every competition you have to play.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
