Chelsea fans wonder if Hazard’s desire to join Real Madrid would be affected if Conte became boss

Under Antonio Conte at Chelsea, Eden Hazard was stifled at times as the club adopted conservative tactics.

With Maurizio Sarri at the helm, the playmaker has had more of a free role that suits his abilities.

So far this season, the Belgium international has scored eight goals in 10 appearances in all competitions.

The 27-year-old has made no secret of the fact that he harbours a desire to join Real Madrid in the future.

Hazard has been linked to the Spanish giants numerous times throughout his six-year spell at Stamford Bridge, but has insisted that he is equally happy to stay at Chelsea.

According to Spanish publication AS, Madrid are considering potential candidates to replace under-pressure boss Julen Lopetegui.

The report claims that Conte, who is out of work following his departure from Chelsea in the summer, is one of the coaches that Los Blancos have their eye on.

After hearing the news, a Chelsea fan launched a debate on Reddit, suggesting that Hazard might reject Madrid if Conte takes over.
