Eden Hazard’s supposed future has taken another twist as the Belgian has revealed that he has made his mind up on where he’ll be next season.
Prior to now, Hazard has been coy about his future, claiming to be torn between staying at Chelsea and moving to Real Madrid, but the Belgium captain has never hidden his desire to play for the Los Blancos.
In an interview with RMC Sport, Hazard has admitted that he has decided on his future.
“I know what I am going to do,” Hazard told RMC speaking about his future.
“I have made a decision.
“For now, the only thing to think about is playing well for Chelsea.
“I have a year-and-a-half left on my contract, everyone knows. My decision will be known soon, but it’s not something that affects my mind.
“I think about it, but without thinking about it. When I’m in the field, I just want to play. We’ll see what happens after.”
Hazard’s contract expires in the summer of 2020 and the Belgian has refused to sign a new contract. And Spanish football expert Guillem Balague claims Hazard has made up his mind to move to Madrid and is only waiting for the Spanish giants to sign him up.
“Hazard wants to go to Real Madrid,” he told El Partidazo de COPE.
“It is his dream and is waiting for them to decide to sign him.
“Hazard has refused to renew with Chelsea and everyone is waiting for their decision.”
El Chiringuito presenter Josep Pedrerol claims Real Madrid are keen to bring Hazard in for his experience, as they have a young squad and haven’t also replaced the departed Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Hazard has managed to withstand the Chelsea pressure,” he said.
“They offered him astronomical figures to renew him, but he’s refused. Hazard has chosen Real Madrid.
“Finally, he gets to realise his dream. The Belgian is a different player, explosive, electric, a goalscorer.
“He will bring leadership to a Madrid side with a lot of youth.
“After Vinicius [Junior], Brahim [Diaz] or Rodrigo, there’s a lack of someone with experience. Hazard is someone who knows how to take a team on his shoulders.
“The time of Hazard has arrived, the time of Real Madrid’s rejuvenation has arrived.”
