Hazard's Father: 'Eden rejected Chelsea renewals to wait for Real Madrid'

  • Real Madrid star Keylor Navas has been plagued by injuries and errors

Chelsea are aware that talks over a new contract are complicated by the fact that Courtois' ex-girlfriend is now living in Madrid with their two children, and that the former Atletico goalkeeper has long harboured a desire to return to a city that he considers to be home.

Despite the apparent interest from Madrid, Chelsea will resist any approaches for Hazard in January, with the forward still having two-and-a-half years remaining on his current contract.

"He could score more", Conte told reporters ahead of Saturday's match against Stoke City.

And though Ederson's pass completion (87.4 per cent) towers above other Premier League goalkeepers, Courtois' rate (71.3) far outweighs former Real target De Gea's (55.3).

"He could score more". That is an aspect he can improve.

"When you are a striker, or a number 10, your speciality must be to score. In this aspect he has a lot of space for improvement". But don't forget he's younger than those other two players (Messi and Ronaldo).

The Chelsea attacker has not, however, signed anything with Real Madrid his father continued.

"If you are in a great club and you trust in the club and the ambition of the club, I think it's right to stay", he said, before directly addressing the furore caused by Thierry Hazard.

Thierry claimed his son has turned down the champions because he is hoping Real Madrid make a move. "Eden is only one of the parties involved in his future".

"Thibaut has a contract, also for the next season", said the Chelsea boss. We are talking about one of the best goalkeepers in the world. "Because, I repeat, I can tell I have fantastic players with me". There is great synergy with these three players. "If you ask me if I hope Courtois stays, yes for sure". "The family is not a problem but I repeat these are private conversations between the player, agent, and club".

"I'm proud to have him in my team and my squad, I'm very happy to work with him".

Courtois is now on a £100,000 a week deal, but with Chelsea will definitely be willing to offer him a better deal to keep him at Stamford Bridge before he gets into his previous year on his current deal.

They now sit in third place in the table and, despite looking likely to surrender their league title, Conte says that a top-four finish should still be deemed a success this season.

"If you do that, your team becomes stronger and you can have the ambition to fight for titles". At the Vicente Calderon, Courtois helped Atleti to the Europa League (2012), Copa Del Rey (2013) and the League title (2014) before Chelsea brought him to London.

"It's very hard to think about fighting until the end for the title but at the same time we must try to fight in every game, for the three points and to give satisfaction to the fans".
