Good news? Willian sends clear Eden Hazard transfer message to Chelsea fans over possible summer exit
Chelsea star Eden Hazard has never talked about a possible move to Real Madrid, claims team-mate Willian.
Belgian winger Hazard has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu all season with reports on his impeding departure from Chelsea in the headlines on a regular basis, especially after he admitted that it would be a dream to play for the Spanish giants.
However, after Madrid shocked many in football by bringing back Zinedine Zidane as coach, there has been an increase of speculation suggesting that Hazard is desperate to now leave the club and play for Real as he wants to work under the guidance of his idol.
But Willian insists Belgium international Hazard is not allowing his mind to wander, telling the TalkSport website: “No doubt, he’s focussed here. He’s never said something about Real Madrid or stuff like this. He just wants to continue to play for Chelsea.”
“I hope he stays with us. But in football you never know what can happen.
“Of course, Eden is a fantastic player, one of the best players in the world. He’s my friend, one of the best players I’ve played with in my whole career.
“I just have to say I hope he stays with us. That’s it.”
Here is what we think.
Keeping hold of Hazard all depends on Champions League football and whether Chelsea can meet his ambitions on a personal level, but with the transfer ban meaning they cannot sign any world class players over the next few windows, then it will be difficult to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City in the coming seasons.
He is at his very best right now and needs that move to Madrid, as in his mind, that is his best chance of winning the Champions League and worlds best player tag.
