Eden Hazard won’t force Chelsea exit

Eden Hazard will not try and force a move away from Chelsea this summer.

The Belgian forward told the Premier League champions, before he left for the summer, that he would give the club at least another season after a brilliant first campaign under Antonio Conte.

Hazard linked up with the Belgium national team amid speculation that Real Madrid would again try and seal a deal for him, and he admitted that the Spanish giants are a club that interests him.

But Chelsea sources have told me that Hazard told them he would not try and force through a move this summer and would only leave if they wanted to sell.

Hazard, who has now broken his ankle and is set for two-months recovery, spoke about his future whilst with the national team.

“Of course I would consider it if Madrid made an offer,” Hazard said.

“I am keen to win trophies. It would be great to win the Champions League. But Chelsea’s goal is to win the Champions League as well. Honestly I do not know what will happen.

“I only know that I still have a contract with Chelsea for three seasons and that we just had an amazing 2016-17 campaign. We want to continue on this path and want to build on this in the Champions League.

“I am feeling very well at Chelsea. But you never know what will happen. I have not met the board yet to discuss a new deal.

“I want to think about football as little as possible.”

Bookmakers believe that if Hazard does leave, it will certainly be to Real Madrid who are 100/30 for his signature but they certainly think he will stay as he is priced at 1/5 to still be with Chelsea next term.
