'He knows that he is important to Chelsea, like I do.

"He is fantastic, but he works hard for the team too and did a lot defensively, which is what we need from him".

Though the Chelsea forward has rubbished speculation about a possible switch to Madrid, it remains likely that Los Blancos will continue their pursuit of one of the Premier League's top performers for the current campaign. If we just speak about football, he has signed for Chelsea for a long time and he will not have the standing he has now at any other top club.
