26-year-old Chelsea magician Eden Hazard is reportedly a summer target for European champions Real Madrid with various reports claiming Real Madrid intend making Hazard their next galactico.
Chelsea aren’t willing to let Hazard leave Stamford Bridge for any price and the Blues intend to offer the Belgian a new contract this summer to ensure the Belgian stays at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard sustained an ankle injury during training with Belgium on Sunday and with the Belgian set to be out for three months, many Chelsea fans expected the transfer rumours to Real Madrid to end.
However, a report on Spanish media outlet Don Balon claim Real Madrid are still interested in Hazard despite his injury setback.
Don Balon claim Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, deems the injury not a setback but an opportunity.
According to Don Balon, Perez has always planned to close the signing of Eden Hazard as late as the last week in August so he doesn’t see the injury as a setback.
Every Chelsea fan, including myself, would be hoping Hazard is giving a contract sooner rather than later to put an end to these constant rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid.
