There are fears that Chelsea star Eden Hazard will leave the club this summer transfer window after seven years at the club.

Strong links with Real Madrid have been going on for about two years now, and reports claim Hazard is bent on plying his trade with Real Madrid next season.

Reports in France claim that Madrid and Chelsea have reached a €100 million (£86m) agreement for Hazard and an official announcement is expected following the Europa League final at the end of this month.

However, former Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo who won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2012 doesn’t think Hazard will leave Chelsea this summer due to the club’s transfer ban.

“Who knows about Hazard? Chelsea have a transfer ban so it is going to be very difficult for anybody to leave that they don’t want to leave,” Di Matteo told The Sun.

“He’s the player that makes the difference. He can change a game individually and there aren’t many players like that. It would be a real shame to lose a player like that.

“Losing Hazard is not great but I’m not sure it will be that easy for him to leave.

“The club has a transfer ban and letting a top player leave and not being able to replace him, it would be very tough for a top club to buy him.

“Nobody is bigger than the club. It’s understandable that he may want to experience a different league after being in London for seven years but it might not be this summer.”

Speaking about his future after Chelsea’s final match of the season, Hazard said: “I have made my decision – but it is not just about me.”
