Real confident of Chelsea deals in 2018

Posted December 30, 2017

ANTONIO CONTE has told Eden Hazard to forget about joining Real Madrid - and become a better player. "It's a club where he sees himself playing, but now there's absolutely no contact with Real".

His father however said that the European Champions have not tried to make any contact with his son as of now and the only interest at the moment is from his ward.

"Eden is only one of the parties to the contract".

The new revelations of Hazard rejecting a new contract offer from Chelsea might have come at the right time for front-runners Real Madrid, who are considered as the favourites to sign the Belgium global.

Liverpool announce deal to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton
The fee for Van Dijk, who joined Southampton from Celtic in 2015 for £13million, will be a world record for a defender. Van Dijk's first game is likely to be the FA Cup third round Merseyside derby with Everton.

Conte was unwilling to offer any clues as to whether the two players will commit to new contracts, but stressed that negotiations will not be discussed in public.

Conte also said he felt he could help Hazard hit the goal-scoring heights if he stayed at Chelsea.

If Courtois doesn't agree to extend his contract, Chelsea would look to complete talks over his transfer as soon as possible, even if the move were not to take place until the summer. "And as they're more visible at a Real or a Barcelona, goalkeeping mistakes are more costly there than any other club".

"Me and my staff are proud to have him as goalkeeper, and proud to create this synergy, this link between three fantastic goalkeepers with Thibaut, Willy Caballero and Eduardo". The Saints have struggled for goals this season and in order to solve their scoring issues, Mauricio Pellegrino has earmarked two players with Premier League experience.

"My task, and the task for every coach, is to try and improve your players", he said.

In his first season with Chelsea, Courtois won the League Cup and Premier League and was a key member for manager Antonio Conte last term as well when they clinched the Premiership once again.

"This is a private conversation - between the club and the player, and the agent of the player", said Conte. "This is the only league to have six top teams to fight every season for the title".
