Chelsea star Eden Hazard has turned down the offer of a new deal at Chelsea in order to increase his chances of moving to Real Madrid, claims his father Thierry Hazard.
Hazard is under contract at Chelsea until 2020.
“What I can reveal about Eden is that he refused a contract extension. This was so that, if necessary, he could follow the interest of Real, whom he could see himself playing for,” Thierry Hazard told Le Soir via Daily Mail.
“As of right now, there is no contact from Real Madrid. Eden is only one of the parties involved in his future.”
Hazard has been impressive for Chelsea this season, scoring eight goals and assisting a further eight for Chelsea in all competitions.
