Nacho is set to play right-back against PSG.

Defender Nacho Fernandez has declared the Real Madrid squad remain fully behind embattled head coach Julen Lopetegui, despite the chaos engulfing the club.

Saturday’s historic 1-0 loss at Alaves made it four matches without a win – or a goal – in all competitions. It also saw Los Blancos drop down to fourth in La Liga.

Rumours have grown that Lopetegui’s four-month stay will be brought to a premature end if October 28’s opening Clasico of the season against Barcelona goes against him.

But speaking to EFE, the Spain international insisted the boss retains strong support.

He said: “The players are to the death with the coach. We are calm, we have experienced situations like this, even worse ones, and we have always been able to move forward.

“I cannot guarantee that at the end of the season we will win all the titles. But Real Madrid has always shown that with the coach that is here and with the players that are here, we will always fight for everything.”

Nacho has scored nine times in 167 appearances for Madrid since his April 2011 debut.

Chelsea are hopeful they will eventually tie star man Eden Hazard down to a new contract despite Real Madrid’s interest, according to reports.

Hazard, 27, has two years left on his current deal and the Blues have failed, thus far, to get him to renew. This situation follows stellar form for club and country – he’s scored seven times in eight 2018/19 Premier League games and was a standout player as Belgium finished third at World Cup 2018.

Speaking after Sunday’s 3-0 win at Southampton, the ex-Lille winger admitted he’s torn between staying put or moving to Santiago Bernabeu.

He said: “Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay.

“It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and will turn 28 in January.”

Sky Sports stated on Tuesday that the Blues retain belief he’ll choose the former option.
