Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been linked with a move to Real Madrid with the Belgian captain admitting playing for Real Madrid is his dream.
Hazard’s Chelsea contract expires in the summer of 2020 and the 27-year-old has also admitted he is torn between extending his Chelsea contract and moving to Real Madrid.
Sky Sports pundit and former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer believes Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has made Eden Hazard’s decision over his future more difficult.
Hazard, who is the Premier League’s leading goalscorer, has also admitted he’s loving life under Sarri and Schwarzer believes Hazard enjoying his football under Sarri could sway his decision over his future.
“I think what’s making his decision, or even his thought process, more difficult is the fact Maurizio Sarri has come in and he’s completely changed the way Chelsea play,” Schwarzer said.
“Eden Hazard clearly, and he’s come out publicly and said it, he’s loving football, how much he’s loving working under Maurizio Sarri.
“So that really has, for his own purposes and his own head, complicated the moment even more.
“I think that is a good thing for Chelsea.
“You can completely understand why Chelsea would want to try and keep hold of him at all costs.
“He is such a phenomenal player.”
