Courtois addresses Hazard to Chelsea rumours, Arteta told Onana wants Arsenal move and Man United plot Romero move in news of the day…
Thibaut Courtois has insisted that Eden Hazard will “100 per cent” remain at Real Madrid next season, with constant rumours linking him with Chelsea.
Hazard has not had the best time of it over at Madrid since he decided to leave the Bridge and make that mega money move to the Bernabeu, and has constantly been plagued by injuries.
Hazard has been limited to just 43 games across all competitions with Real, contributing a modest tally of five goals and eight assists, and that has led to many reports suggesting that he is very keen on the idea of making that move back to Chelsea.
But amid talk Madrid could look to cut their losses, Hazard’s team-mate for club and country has backed him to remain at the Bernabeu.
“I’m 100% sure he’s staying. He doesn’t want to move. Only the Madrid press writes about the desire to leave,” Courtois said in an interview with Le Soir.
“He wants to continue, play free of injuries and win titles,” the Belgium goalkeeper continued.
“At Real Madrid there is criticism all the time and for everyone. Gareth Bale was criticized, but he won the Champions League and scored a double in the final in Kyiv.
“We all know that in Madrid there is pressure and criticism from the press and the fans. But Eden can handle that. I know him well enough to say it. He can still change everything.
“He still wants to be an important player for Madrid and win titles.”
Hazard should stay at Madrid and prove that he does have the ability to be a superstar there because at the end of the day, he is still one of the clubs most dangerous players.
