Chelsea news: Eden Hazard fires Barcelona threat and responds to Real Madrid rumours

CHELSEA star Eden Hazard has warned Barcelona ahead of the Champions League clash tomorrow (7.45pm).

The Belgium international has also responded to rumours linking him with a summer move to Real Madrid.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has come under mounting pressure this season as the Blues sit fourth in the Premier League table.

But Hazard insists the players are fully behind the Italian and are working hard to try and get through to the next round of the Champions League.

“We win together, we lose together,” Hazard said.

“I don’t sense there’s any player who’s not with the coach.

Everyone is behind him. All we want is to climb the table — and give everything against Barcelona.

“We will see what happens after.”

Hazard also cooled the talk of a summer move to the Bernabeu.

“For the time being I’m here, there are still some months to go and competitions to try to win, then the World Cup is coming up,” Hazard added.

“I’m here, I still have 2½ years on my contract.

“I’m very settled here and playing every game.

“The fans like me a lot and my family likes it here. We’ll see.”

Hazard was also asked if he was flattered by Real’s interest, to which he replied: “Yes, but  it’s been several years now they’re interested — when it’s not Real, it’s Paris, when it’s not Paris, it’s Real. I’m happy where I am.”
