Chelsea stars Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have both been linked with Real Madrid in recent years and the La Liga giants are said to be keeping close tabs on the Belgian duo.
Courtois will enter the final year of his contract next summer and so far hasn’t put pen to paper to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge. Hazard, meanwhile, will have less than two years left on his deal by the time the World Cup starts.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has appealed to the club to do everything possible for them to sign a new contract with the Blues.
“The club knows very well the importance of these two players, I think these two players are very happy to play for this club,” Conte said.
“It is normal during the season to have the contact between the player – or the agent of the player – and the club. I hope that at the end, Thibaut will sign his contract.
“If you ask me about these two players, I will be very happy when they can have this deal but this is the responsibility of the club to try to do this.
“I can give my opinion and for me these two players are two great players especially because they have a lot of space for improvement.
“They are very young players and it will be great to keep them with us.”
