Antonio Conte has warned Real Madrid off over a summer move for Chelsea winger Eden Hazard.
After returning to form this season, Hazard has been the subject of repeated speculation that he could be heading to the Bernabeu.
But with Premier League leaders Chelsea looking to return to the Champions League next season, Conte is confident that they can keep the Belgian.
“If the player is happy and the player knows he will stay in a great team with great ambition, I don’t see any problem,” said Conte.
“Even if this club calls itself Real Madrid. We are in a great club.
“We started to build something good for the future, and the ambitions of this club are the same as mine and my players.
“We stay in the right place if you want to be competitive in the game, be competitive in the future.
“I hope to play in the Champions League next season. I’m sure about this, that you’d be staying in the right place, in a great club with great ambition. I can tell this 100 percent.
“I think, in this situation [Hazard’s], it’s always very important to understand if this is speculation or if there is some truth in it. In this situation I think it’s very important that we love the player.”
