Incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has made his first big call by putting Eden Hazard up for sale, according to reports. 

The Belgian international has endured a torrid campaign this season, failing to score a single goal in the Premier League since April 2015.

The 25-year-old was crowned PFA Player of the Year last season as Chelsea went on to win the Premier League, has been heavily criticised by Blues fans for a string of poor performances this season.

Hazard has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with Spanish giants Real Madrid heavily linked with a move for the forward.

And according to The Sun,  he has now been put on the transfer market by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Reports also suggest that incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, who will join the Blues after Italy’s Euro 2016 campaign, demands “loyalty and decency” from his players – something Hazard has not shown this season.

Conte, who signed a three-year deal at Stamford Bridge, has reportedly eyed a stunning £80million move for Juventus star Paul Pogba, a player who he managed during his time at the Italian champions.
