Eden Hazard Makes Huge Statement Concerning Chelsea Future Amid Real Madrid Link
Eden Hazard has declared he wants to remain on the right part at Chelsea despite reports linking him with a switch to Spanish giants Real Madrid next summer.
According to Tribal Football report citing Sporza, Hazard is currently with Belgium squad ahead of their UEFA League of Nations match against Iceland, and does not want to be troubled with transfer issues.
Hazard is still under contract with Chelsea until 2020 but club chiefs are making frantic effort to extend his stay at west London.
At the moment, both parties are yet to open discussions over an extension, but the Belgian prefers to wait until the end of the 2018-19 campaign to talk about his future.
“I’m only thinking about Chelsea now,” Hazard was quoted as saying to Sporza .
“The competition lasts seven or eight months, after that I’ll see what happens.

“The coach has the same football philosophy as I. He always thinks about the ball. How we as players think about football, that is also his way of thinking.
“If you see how Napoli play, it’s thanks to Maurizio Sarri, his style is now reflected in Chelsea, he also has players who fit into the system. So yes, we’re very happy, we play football well,” Hazard summed up.
The Belgium playmaker Hazard completed a switch to west London in 2012 after a 5-year stint at French League 1 side Lille.
According to The Mirror report, the Belgian remains grateful that Cole convinced him to make the switch, while at Lille during the 2011/12 season.
Incidentally, that was Hazard’s last season at the French topflight, but he left on the high as Lille ended the campaign with an UEFA Champions League spot after finishing third.
