Eden Hazard calls rival manager to reveal Chelsea plans – report
Eden Hazard has spoken to Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane about his Chelsea plans, according to reports in Spain
Eden Hazard has called Zinedine Zidane to inform the Real Madrid manager that he won’t be leaving Chelsea this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet Diario Gol, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that Hazard has spoken to the Real Madrid boss to inform him of his plans to remain at Stamford Bridge beyond the summer transfer window.
The same article states Hazard has made the decision to focus on recovering from a broken ankle and impressing Chelsea manager Antonio Conte in the 2017-18 Premier League season.
Real Madrid have regularly been linked with a move to sign Hazard since the Belgian forward inspired Chelsea to the 2014-15 Premier League title under ex-manager Jose Mourinho.
Hazard scored 15 times in the Premier League last season to help new boss Conte secure title glory in his first campaign in charge of the London outfit.
The Chelsea number 10 met Real Madrid legend Ronaldo at an event in London on Wednesday evening to prompt speculation above a potential move to los Blancos this summer.
