The future of Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been in the air for many months now.
The Chelsea forward has been linked with a move away from the club for several months now, with Real Madrid keen on his signature, and rumours tend to claim that Hazard will leave Chelsea for Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Reports of Hazard completing a move to the Bernabeu intensified after the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager of Real Madrid earlier this month following a poor run of results for the La Liga giants under Santiago Solari, and Hazard has made no secret of his desire to play not only for Real Madrid but under the veteran Zidane, a player he idolised as a kid.
Despite all these rumours, Hazard has refused to be drawn into these speculations of a Chelsea exit, and recently insisted that he’s focused on Chelsea.
Asked about his future ahead of Belgium’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Russia and Cyprus, the Belgium captain said: “At the moment there’s nobody waiting for me.
“We still have 2 important months with Chelsea. We can win the Europa League.
“We have to win the Europa League or we have to finish in the top four to play in the Champions League.
“I am only thinking about that (last two months with Chelsea), not about what might happen in two, three, four months. I don’t know. We will see.”
And now, Hazard has raised the hopes of Chelsea fans by claiming he’ll choose Chelsea Blue over Real Madrid’s white in a Twitter question and answer.
During a Q&A with Belgian outlet HLN, Hazard was asked to choose between the blue of Chelsea and the white of Real Madrid, to which he replied: “Blue!”
