Antonio Conte makes Chelsea warning about Eden Hazard
Antonio Conte warns that Eden Hazard is not for sale by Chelsea at any price
Antonio Conte has warned Eden Hazard’s potential suitors that the Chelsea playmaker is not for sale at any price.
The Belgian playmaker has been in fine form for Chelsea this season following the appointment of Conte as the club’s new manager last summer.
The 26-year-old has been able to rediscover the kind of form which won him the PFA player of the year award back in 2015.
Hazard’s status as one of the Premier League’s top attacking players is bound to lead to speculation linking him with a possible transfer away from Stamford Bridge to join the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona.
However, Conte has moved to play down suggestions that Hazard could be set to quit Stamford Bridge any time soon.
Speaking at his pre-match news conference on Friday afternoon, Conte said: “I’m not good at putting a price on a player.
“I think Eden for sure is a great player, a top player.
“He’s on a level very high. But I don’t see the problem because we don’t want to sell him!
“He has not [got] a price now.”
Chelsea are currently gearing up for their Premier League clash against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday as they look to take a step closer towards winning the title.
