With several clubs lining their respective bid for Hazard, Antonio Conte's Chelsea are expected to entertain and turn down several lucrative offers from football's juggernauts.

The Blues chief has seen his star player linked with a move to Real Madrid - and fans are concerned.

He said: "As of right now, there is no contract from Real Madrid - Eden is only one of the parties involved in his future".

Hazard has been in solid form for the west London side this season and looks like he is once again hitting top gear for Antonio Conte's side.

Conte says that he is hopeful Courtois will stay at Stamford Bridge, as he thinks he is one of the world's best, per Miguel Delaney at the Independent.

Chelsea are aware of the situation around Courtois and are keen to reach an agreement over a new contract as soon as possible. With Chelsea's entry into European competition guaranteed, competition and squad depth are necessary and Marchisio is a ideal it in the 3-4-3 system Conte uses.

The Belgian has already turned down a contract extension with Chelsea and Madrid are considering bringing in both Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga and Courtois.

Asked about Hazard, he replied: "My answer is always the same: it's a private conversation between the club and the player and the agent of the player. It's a club where he sees himself playing, but now there's absolutely no contact with Real".

"If you are at a great club and you trust in the club and their ambition, I think it is right to stay".

Conte admits that he has no power to keep Hazard as Chelsea's board of directors will take on a leading role in negotiations, but he made it clear that he wants to see his best players remain at the club.

"My only hope is to continue to train him because I'm very happy for his commitment, his behaviours and the atmosphere they have created with the three goalkeepers and the two goalkeeper coaches". 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.
