Eden Hazard holding out for Real Madrid move from Chelsea FC – report
Eden Hazard will push for a move to Real Madrid this summer if the Spanish club show an interest in the Chelsea FC star, say reports
Eden Hazard wants to move to Real Madrid and will delay signing a new contract with Chelsea FC in the hope that the Spanish club will bid for him, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is claiming that the Belgian playmaker has his heart set on a move to the Bernabeu and he will push for a move to Spain if Real Madrid’s interest becomes concrete.
According to the same story, the 27-year-old is stalling on signing a new contract with the Blues in the hope that Real Madrid will make a bid this summer.
The same report says that an offer from Real Madrid is only likely to materialise from Real Madrid is Zinedine Zidane stays in charge at The Bernabeu.
Despite the uncertainty about Hazard’s future, Chelsea FC are said to be “desperate” to keep hold of their star man, whose current contract at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer of 2020.
Hazard cut a frustrated figure on Sunday afternoon when he was deployed up front alone by Antonio Conte in the 1-0 loss to Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Belgian will be hoping to help the Blues return to winning ways in the top flight on Saturday when Chelsea FC host Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.
