Rumours of Eden Hazard moving to Real Madrid ran all the week, especially yesterday, when a Spanish journalist claimed the Belgian star already signed a pre-agreement with the Blancos and even that the Chelsea player visited Valdebebas, the Real Madrid training ground, to meet Florentino Perez back in February.
When during today’s press conference Conte was asked about this, he said:
“Now it’s important to be focused on the present, we don’t have to look too far forward, Eden is our player, we aee happy with him, he’s happy with us, I don’t see problems about him.
“I think that this is a part of our game, that other people report these rumours to influence player’s minds, but I think we have experience, also my players got experience, it’s logical in this part of the season rumours about our players start, I am very happy because it means we are doing a great job and my players are doing very well.
“I don’t see any problem about our players, we all know we are in a great club with great ambition, there is a great will to do great things in the future, don’t forget there are some games to play, we hope to finish the season with great success for us.
“I think it’s positive, when another top team wants your players it means you are doing a very good job, but I repeat, I think that now we are already in a great club, with great ambition, they want to do something important, for the present and the future, I think we just started our path.”
