The player’s future is still uncertain
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 winger has scored 98 goals for the English side in 300 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 Belgium International 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.
Though the Premier League giants finished 5th in the Premier League and missed out on the the Champions League Football for the upcoming season. It’s the second time the club have missed out on a top 4 place in the past 3 years.
The 27 year old has been one of the stand out players in this year’s World Cup, scoring 3 goals and assisting 2. Though Belgium were defeated by France in the semi-finals but they defeated England in the third place play off.
The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in the past couple of transfer windows and with Cristiano Ronaldo leaving them to join Juventus this summer, he has again been linked with a move to the La Liga giant
Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley has urged Hazard to join the Spanish side and feels it is the perfect time for him to move in order to become the best.
Burley told ESPN FC: “At the end of the day, he has been there six years.
“It has been very fruitful for him, changes are afoot at Chelsea, Sarri is a very good coach and plays attacking football.
“But can any player really turn down Real Madrid if they come knocking at the door?
“And you are a top player and want to go enhance your game like Ronaldo did.
“When Ronaldo left United, it propelled him and I think it is time for Hazard to propel himself to that next level.”
