Eden Hazard has made a decision on his Chelsea future but stopped short of revealing his decision. It is unclear whether he will remain at Stamford Bridge next season or heading elsewhere.
The 28-year-old playmaker is into the final 18 months of his contract at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea had been hoping to put fresh terms in place with a key man by now. However, all efforts have so far yielded negative results with lots of transfer speculation generating as a result.
The 28-year-old’s public declaration of his love for Real Madrid is one of the catalysts for the unending speculations. The Belgium international is not shy of making his ambition to one day represent the Los Blancos known.
It could be that such a switch is made in the summer transfer window of 2019, with Hazard revealing that a call has been made on his future.
Hazard told RMC : “I know what I am going to do. I have made a decision.”
Hazard has not admitted in public as to what his next move will be. This, in turn, is likely to ensure that exit gossip intensifies heading towards the next window.
When last interviewed on Madrid speculation back in January, Hazard told France Football: “Would I like to sign for Real Madrid? Why not?
“I have never heard from Zidane and if he goes to Manchester United tomorrow, for example, I would not be there. Real Madrid without Zidane is different, but it is still Real Madrid”.
“I’ve won everything in England, except the Community Shield, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to leave. I’ve always said that I want to try something different after England, but there are things that might make me stay.”
