Chelsea calm over Dad claims of Hazard rejecting contract offer

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

"If you are in a great club and you have trust in the club and the ambition of the club, I think it's right to stay", Conte said. That is an aspect he can improve", Conte said, "When you are a striker, or a No.10, your speciality must be to score.

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.

Just hours earlier, Hazard's father said his son was trying to force through a move to Real Madrid - after SunSport told you Manchester United were interested.

"But don't forget, he's younger than these two players you named [Messi and Ronaldo]".

Quotes attributed to Hazard Snr said that Hazard had "rejected a contract offer but that there had been "no contact with Real". The massive Eden Hazard transfer gets another view in other Chelsea news and in more news from Manchester, Joe Hart's future seems to be up in the air.

However, Conte is determined to keep hold of his keeper, who has 18 months left to run on his existing contract.

"Thibaut has a contract, also for the next season", said the Chelsea boss.

Chelsea have prepared a Plan A and Plan B for the 25-year-old, and Plan B sees the Premier League champions ready to hand Courtois a new contract that would make him the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world.

"Me and my staff are proud to have him as goalkeeper, and proud to create this synergy, this link between three fantastic goalkeepers with Thibaut, Willy Caballero and Eduardo". Juventus are demanding £25 million, rejecting Chelsea's £17 million bid for a player who has not been afforded many opportunities under Max Allegri this season, with 15 appearances in 34 matches. The pressure will be on him to deliver, having seen James being relegated to the bench for his inconsistency, and he will have improved his mental strength after last season, to move to a club the size of Madrid and deliver. "Not for me. These are private conversations that the player, the agent of the player must have with the club".

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 past year on his current deal.

"If you do that, your team becomes stronger and you can have the ambition to fight for titles". And then there are only four places for the Champions League and two for the Europa League.

Conte has no fresh injuries for the trip to Stoke while the game comes too soon for David Luiz, who has a knee injury.
