Chelsea have no plans to sell Eden Hazard this summer, with new boss Antonio Conte expected to get the best out of the playmaker next season, according to the Sunday Supplement panel.
Hazard has endured a torrid campaign at Stamford Bridge, with the Belgium international yet to score a goal in his 26 Premier League appearances for the club.
The 25-year-old has found the back of the net just twice in 38 matches in all competitions, in stark contrast to the impressive form he displayed for Chelsea last season.
However, despite reports claiming Chelsea are keen to offload the player for 80m pounds. this summer, Sam Wallace told the Sunday Supplement that the west London club are in fact keen to keep him at Stamford Bridge.
“He has had a dreadful season, there are no two ways about it,” the Daily Telegraph’s chief football writer said.
“The feeling at Chelsea is that it would be foolish to sell him, he has been the Player of the Year. Twelve months ago he was a very good player and they believe he will be a good player again.”
