Huge transfer boost: Real Madrid target tells Conte he wants to stay at Chelsea

According to reports from The Times, Eden Hazard has informed incoming manager Antonio Conte that he wants to stay at Chelsea next season.

The Belgium international has suffered a dramatic fall from grace since claiming the 2015 PFA Player of the Year award, bagging just two goals across all competitions this season and yet to find the net in the Premier League.

Hazard has been linked with potential moves to PSG and Real Madrid throughout the campaign, but The Times claim he’s committed to staying on at Stamford Bridge for next season.

Conte held private talks with several of the west London outfit’s key players after his appointment became official earlier this month and discussions with the 25-year-old appear to have gone well.

Hazard has reportedly accepted his performances have been well below par this term and is ready to make amends. Chelsea are now 10th in the Premier League table following a 3-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.
