With Neymar leaving Barcelona for PSG and Real Madrid making noise about selling Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard's name is popping up in transfer gossip for both Spanish giants.
In recent weeks, there have been inevitable concerns about the age of the club's newest striker, asking whether the Spain global has enough experience to command a starting position in Chelsea's first XI.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had an answer, pointing to Chelsea sending numerous players out on loan, while former England captain turned pundit Alan Shearer said there was "something brewing which isn't nice" at Stamford Bridge.
The young midfielder played 26 times scoring five goals for David Wagner's team last season helping them to a dramatic Play-Off final victory and promotion to the Premier League. But do I feel sorry for Chelsea because they don't have enough players? "I'm trying to do my best every day".
Chelsea's position is that Costa and his representatives were made aware in January that he would not be in Conte's plans for this season, and a club spokesman later described Cardoso's allegations against the Blues head coach as "nonsense".
Chelsea were heavily linked with Romelu Lukaku before he joined Manchester United, who also took Nemanja Matic from Stamford Bridge for £40million, while the Blues have so far failed to prise Alex Sandro away from Juventus.
"Matic was a big player for Chelsea last season and even though they have sign players to replace him, he is going to be missed and possibly just as significantly, he strengthens Manchester United, there is no doubt about that". My aim is to try to improve my players, to try to improve my team. This must be my focus in this period. "I want to play and I want to score and I want to give everything on the pitch".
"I don't think the club wanted to let Diego Costa go necessarily, because you can't get Diego Costas on every street corner". This role is more hard to adapt to than others.
Alvaro Morata has told Marca that he has "the personality" to live up to being Chelsea's club-record signing and answer the critics who he says "are already killing me" by scoring "more than 20 goals".
