Eden Hazard who has been constantly linked with a move to Real Madrid, ever since he arrived at the London-based club has finally spoken out on the possibility of moving to one of the biggest clubs in the world.
It has not been a secret to anyone that Real Madrid have constantly scouted the Belgium attacker and view him one of the players who could be the long-term successor to Cristiano Ronaldo, who is soon approaching the twilight of his career. Madrid have been on the constant lookout for the next Galactico signing, having taken a more sustainable policy of signing young players for the past couple of summers. But manager Zinedine Zidane is a known admirer of Hazard and would love to have him in his ranks.
Speaking on being linked with a move to Real Madrid, Hazard speaking to Canal+ said, “I am always very fine at this club. I still have two years of contract [left]. When I feel the desire to leave, I’ll leave. But, for now, I’m a Blue.”
He also spoke on his admiration for Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane, saying, “We know the admiration that I have for Real, but I’m at Chelsea. Every year, things were said about me but I stayed.”
He finally concluded on how the constant rumours do not affect him one bit, saying, “In Lille, I was announced in Paris, but I stayed. And in Chelsea, people always said that I’m leaving, but I’m still here.”
Hazard has only two years to run on his Chelsea contract and they would be wise to tie him down to a new deal soon. His importance to the team was recently affirmed by Frank Lampard, who told BT Sports, “When Chelsea play well Eden Hazard plays well, it’s been a constant over the last few years and he creates so much. He is the magic in this Chelsea team. There are other great players but when he’s on it he really does make the difference.”
