Conte Confident Of Hazard Stay (Sky Sports)
Conte believes Chelsea are a big enough club to fight off Real Madrid's
interest in Eden Hazard.
Sky sources understand the Spanish giants want to sign the Belgium star this
summer but any talks between the clubs are yet to take place.
Ahead of a home clash against Crystal Palace on Saturday, Conte also said
the substance of Premier League football can help keep Hazard at Stamford
Bridge beyond the summer.
He said: "It's very important [to establish] the will of the player. If the
player is happy and the player knows he will stay in a great team with great
ambition, I don't see any problem.
"Also, this club can call [itself a] Real Madrid. We started to build
something important and the ambitions of this club are top; the same as
mine, as my players.
"He's a young player and he has a lot of improvement in his path as a
footballer. I'm sure about this; that you'd be staying in the right place,
in a great club, with great ambition.
"To win the Premier League is a great challenge and a more difficult
challenge, for a player or a coach, than all the other leagues. This league
is really top in all aspects.
"The only thing I can say is Eden is a Chelsea player, our player. We are
happy with him. He is happy with us. I don't see a problem."
