Chelsea star Eden Hazard is reportedly waiting for Real Madrid to make a move to sign him according to Belgian football expert Kristof Terreur.
The 28-year-old has 18 months left on his contract but has stalled on signing a new Chelsea contract despite confirming that he and his family are happy in London.
According to Terreur, Hazard has rejected two contract offers from Chelsea because he is waiting for Real Madrid to make a move to sign him.
“He has rejected two contract offers so far and says that he doesn’t want to sign right now. That means he is waiting for something and that something means just one thing, Real Madrid,” Terreur told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“Real Madrid are still interested as far as I know, but they are still yet to make their move. They don’t have a personal agreement with him at this point, they don’t have an agreement with Chelsea and they haven’t even made the phone call like they did last summer.
“When they called last summer, Marina Granovskaia said that he wasn’t for sale and Real respected that. But they might come back in again as they need to strengthen their squad after this season and it is easier to get players with just over a year left on a contract.”
Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in signing Hazard but Terreur insists Hazard has no intention of joining PSG.
“For him it is simple. It’s either staying at Chelsea or going to Real Madrid. He doesn’t think about PSG. They have always been sniffing around the table and got the same answer – he’s already played in Ligue 1 and will only ever play for Lille if he returns,” Terreur added.
“He is currently happy in London, his kids are happy in London, his wife is happy in London and if the dream move to Real Madrid doesn’t come off, he will stay at Chelsea and sign a contract for life.
“I think he will push for that Real Madrid move, but it is up to Real Madrid right now.”
