According to the Spanish media sources, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has reportedly told Real Madrid they will have to give the Blues Alvaro Morata and Raphael Varane if they want to land Eden Hazard this summer.
The Belgian superstar is a long-term target for the Champions League holders, with the manager Zinedine Zidane desperate to make a marquee signing.
And the latest reports from Don Balon claim that Antonio Conte has a transfer plan for his star man. They say the Blues head coach will demand Alvaro Morata, Raphael Varane and cash for Hazard’s signature.
The same sources also add that the Los Blancos striker – also wanted by Manchester United – tops Conte’s wish list. Reports yesterday suggested the Red Devils had approached Morata’s camp about a possible summer move.
The 24-year-old Raphael Varane would be John Terry’s long-term replacement at Stamford Bridge. The veteran Englishman will leave the west London club in the summer after 22 years at Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Antonio Conte insists he’s out shopping for a new wave of Chelsea legends in the summer. The Italian tactician has already lost two veterans, Branislav Ivanovic and John Obi Mikel this term.
And now, the former Juve boss claims that he needs to replace four players for the upcoming season. Conte also added that he should snap up the next generation of Stamford Bridge heroes.
