“Also, this club can call [itself a] Real Madrid. We started to build something important and the ambitions of this club are top; the same as mine, as my players.
“He’s a young player and he has a lot of improvement in his path as a footballer. I’m sure about this; that you’d be staying in the right place, in a great club, with great ambition.
“To win the Premier League is a great challenge and a more difficult challenge, for a player or a coach, than all the other leagues. This league is really top in all aspects.
“The only thing I can say is Eden is a Chelsea player, our player. We are happy with him. He is happy with us. I don’t see a problem.”
