Willian has insisted that Eden Hazard has not spoken about a possible transfer to Real Madrid and says he is fully focused on Chelsea FC.

Hazard is widely considered to be one of the finest attacking players in European football and his future has been a source of speculation recently because his current deal at Stamford Bridge is set to expire in 2020.

The 28-year-old Belgian has long been linked with a transfer to Real Madrid and that speculation could well heighten between now and the end of the season.

However, his Chelsea FC team-mate Willian has now insisted that Hazard remains fully committed to the Blues and has not spoken about a move to Real Madrid with his team-mates.

Willian is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail: “No doubt, he’s focused here.

“He’s never said something about Real Madrid or stuff like this. He just wants to continue to play for Chelsea.”

Hazard will be expecting to feature for Chelsea FC when they take on Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Sunday.

The west London side are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table as they look to try and break back into the top four this season.

The Blues do have a game in hand on Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham, and they would move level on points with the Gunners if they were to win it.
