The player was heavily linked with an exit in this transfer window
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 301 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.
The 27 year old has been 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.
However, he confirmed few days ago that will stay at Stamford Bridge this season and has featured in both of the club’s opening Premier League fixtures. New contract talks are also reportedly being discussed between him and the club.
Maurizio Sarri even confirmed on Friday that the player will not be leaving the club this season. Though it is unsure whether he will extend his contract beyond 2020.
Hazard’s father Thierry is unsure whether his son will move to Real Madrid or not not in the future. He feels that the deal might never after a previous deal broke down.
He told Hiet Nieuwsblad as quoted by Goal : “I can’t say why it did not go through. Not because I don’t want to, because I don’t know. Maybe they have a policy where they want to give the youth a chance. Eden will have one more year on his contract next summer, but he may never end up in Madrid. “
He added: “It could be that it had been a different story with Zidane. But on the other hand, he will also have had his reasons for leaving.”
