Jose Mourinho has rejected speculation that Diego Costa and Eden Hazard could leave Chelsea, amid rumours of summer moves to Real Madrid.
Newly-appointed Blancos coach Rafael Benitez is reportedly keen on the duo, who played starring roles in helping the Blues to Premier League glory last term.
With 20 goals, Costa led the forward line expertly, while PFA Player of the Year Hazard was arguably the heartbeat of Chelsea’s attack for the entire season.
The Belgian signed a long-term extension at Stamford Bridge earlier this year after been linked with a switch to Real, while Costa, linked with a return to Atletico Madrid, also rubbished reports.
“I don’t see our team losing players. I don’t see our team losing our qualities, especially our mental, emotional approach to matches, to the season, to the competition,” Mourinho told reporters.
