He was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid
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.
Former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise believes Hazard will not be leaving the club any time soon and will snub interests from European giants.
He told beIN SPORTS on a much sought-after asset: “I think he’ll stay, I really do.
“He’s important to Chelsea and the fans as well, he’s important to the team as he is a player of exceptional ability.
“You want to keep those type of players so fingers crossed nothing happens.
“I think he’s quite loyal and I think he wants to stay at Chelsea, I really do.”
