Eden Hazard reassures Chelsea FC supporters about his future plans
The Chelsea FC star insists he won't force a move away from Stamford Bridge
Eden Hazard has insisted that he will only leave Chelsea FC if the Premier League club sanction his move.
The Belgium international’s future has been a source of debate during the international break following a prolific start to the Premier League season.
Hazard has scored seven goals in eight games in the Premier League under Maurizio Sarri to make his best start to a campaign in England football since his move from Lille in 2012.
The 27-year-old missed out on a move to Real Madrid in the summer despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s switch to Juventus leaving a void in los Blancos’ starting line up.
Hazard has made no secret of his affection for the Champions League holders and the Chelsea FC number 10 has been regularly linked with a move to the Spanish capital.
The Belgian forward has less than 24 months to run on his current deal and Hazard could leave the FA Cup champions for nothing at the end of the 2019-20 season.
Hazard fuelled speculation surrounding his future when the Chelsea FC star admitted that it was his dream to represent Real Madrid in an interview during the international break last week.
However, the Belgian star has reassured the west London club that he won’t force a move and underlined he will only leave Chelsea FC if the Blues permit his sale.
“Chelsea were clear to me; I could not leave (in the summer). I accepted it,” Hazard told Telefoot, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“Leaving or staying, I knew I was going to be happy. I do not regret at all.
“I will never clash with a club. If I leave Chelsea, I will leave on good terms.”
Hazard has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, three League Cups and the Europa League during his six-season stint at the west London outfit.
The Chelsea FC number 10 won the PFA player of the year award under Jose Mourinho when he scored 14 times in their title-winning campaign in 2014-15.
The Blues playmaker netted 16 goals in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge but missed out on a second PFA award after his team-mate N’Golo Kante was voted the league’s best player by his colleagues.
