Hazard 'would play at left-back' for Conte at Chelsea

Hazard 'would play at left-back' for Conte at Chelsea

The Chelsea talisman has been persistently linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid believed to be interested in signing the Belgium global.

Courtois has been linked with a move to Real over the past few seasons, with the Belgian eager to return to Madrid one day.

Who's better: Man City star Kevin De Bruyne or Chelsea ace Eden Hazard? "I am just thinking about the end of the season and the World Cup".

I still have a year on my contract and we have to talk to Chelsea soon, but I already know that I'll be at Chelsea again next year, whether I'm extending (my deal) or not.

His next contract will be his last before he turns 30 and therefore likely to be his last big pay-day.




Conte's position at the club is likely to have a big impact on whether numerous players see a long-term future at Chelsea, and Hazard's World Cup in Russian Federation will serve as a happy distraction from any uncertainty at club level. We want to reach the top four.

Roberto Martinez has selected Hazard to captain the team in Russian Federation and they are conscious of expectations on this talented generation to make an impact at a major tournament before it is too late.

"Four years ago was the first World Cup for most of our players", Hazard added. 'Now we have experience.

This season Courtois has kept the third-most clean sheets in the Premier league (13) - level with Spurs' Hugo Lloris - while he has also conceded just 27 goals in 29 matches for the Stamford Bridge club.

The 2018 World Cup will run from June 14 to July 15, at which point there will be less than a month until the Premier League's transfer window shuts on August 9, as opposed to its usual closing on August 31.
