Chelsea star Eden Hazard was often linked to Real Madrid in the past months, but the Champions of Europe manager dismissed all the rumours about this possible deal:

“He is a very, very good player,” the French manager said about the Belgian player after he beat Chelsea 3-2 in a friendly game in the USA.

“Obviously all clubs want the best players but he is a Chelsea player.”

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan dismissed rumours on his future with a post on Twitter.

The Belgian star was linked to Chelsea in the past weeks but last night he revealed he had no contact with any club.

Translating the tweet he wrote in Italian we can read:

“If I’ve not spoken to any club yet, why would I have spoken about it to my friends? Forza Roma and Forza Belgium tonight!”

Simone Zaza‘s agent, Christian Maifredi, dismissed rumours of his player moving to Chelsea:

“I learned about Simone’s links to Chelsea through the Press,” he told TuttoJuve.com

I don’t have anything to declare on an official level, it’s just information that I’ve read online.

“It’s nice, of course, to be linked to such a great club but there are still a dozen games to be played in the Bianconeri shirt, one Simone is very attached to.

“There’s the end of the season to go, and the European Championships still to be played.

“If we have to talk about the transfer market, it’ll only be after that.”

Maifredi was then asked to asses his client’s impact in Turin so far.

“It’s been a totally new period for Simone, these eight months he’s been playing in the Juventus shirt.

“As his agent I’ve observed his growth compared to when he wore the Sassuolo shirt, and because of his new surroundings and new targets we’re very satisfied with his performance.

“When he’s been called upon he’s done well, as shown by his seven goals in 750 minutes which really is an excellent average.

“I hope he can get more minutes before the end of the season.”

mourinho fabregas

Cesc Fabregas was forced again to dismiss rumours of a fall-out with former Chelsea manager José Mourinho.

Speculations around some media and among the fans were claiming that the Spaniard was one of the “rats” that let Mourinho down, he was also strongly booed last Saturday during Sunderland’s clash for this.

Radio BBC 5 and Chelsea legend Pat Nevin also hinted at him as one of the players that were causing troubles to the Portuguese manager, stating he was the player that said: “I would rather lose than win for Mourinho”.

After threatening to sue them, they both apologised to him and so Cesc took again the social networks to make, once more, the situation clear and dismiss the rumours again:

“I’m pleased that Pat Nevin and the BBC apologised and corrected their comments.

I can reiterate that I had an exceptionally good relationship with Jose Mourinho as I will aim to have with any coach that I play for.

The football club is more important than any one player. We have all let the manager and club down this year as a collective unit. We will get this right of that I am sure.

With all your help we can put this period behind us and make Chelsea great again.”

Chelsea summer signing Pedro struggled, like all of his team-mates, in his first months at Stamford Bridge.

He was also stopped for almost a couple of months by an injury but now, with the confidence boosting after the last game where he also scored the 2-0 goal, he hopes that the situation will improve both for the team and him.

There were rumours of a Chelsea exit in January, but he dismissed them:

I’m happy here. This information that I’m not is false. I am very satisfied to be here in this club,” Pedro revealed.

“I am happy with the supporters and this team. Obviously the situation is not good but together it is possible for us to climb the table.”

He also spoke about new Chelsea interim manager:

“Guus Hiddink is a very good coach and I am sure the club are confident about him. 

“He spoke with me after the Sunderland game for a minute in Spanish and I had a good feeling. For me it was perfect. He was telling me is happy here and with the team.”

But, speaking to Globo Esporte, Mendes dismissed all this:

There is nothing to those rumours,” the agent said.

“We do not know what will happen in the future, but there is no agreement for now, nor is there an official proposal.

“Those rumours are simply not true.”
