He claims the Belgium International was not trying to leave this summer
Eden Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in the summer of 2012 and is one of the club’s undisputed stars. He is considered as one of the best players in the world after performing at the highest level over the past few seasons.
The Belgium International has scored 100 goals for the English side in 304 appearances. He has claimed two Premier League titles during his time in west London, along with FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League triumphs.
Despite Blue’s struggle last season, the winger featured regularly for them and managed to score 17 goals in all competitions. He was very influential against Manchester United in the final of the FA Cup as he scored the winner in the 1-0 win, helping the team to grab their 8th FA Cup title.
The 27 year old was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in the past few transfer windows and the speculations further intensified when he hinted on taking a new challenge after the World Cup.
But both the player and club’s new manager Maurizio Sarri confirmed last month that he will stay at Stamford Bridge this season and will not even leave during the January transfer window.
The Belgian has featured in all the Premier League fixtures so far this season, scoring 2 goals and providing 2 assists. The London Outfit have won all the 4 matches and are second on the table behind Liverpool.
Marcos Alonso has insisted Hazard is happy at Chelsea and never wanted to join Real Madrid this summer.
“I did not see Hazard in Madrid (this summer),” Alonso told AS as quoted by Express Sports.
“He’s very happy at Chelsea.
“I do not know if there was interest or not but Hazard and his family are very well there (at Chelsea).”
