Hazard finally decided on his future
Chelsea leader Eden Hazard announced that the issue with his future had already been resolved. The player knows where he will play from the next season.
Recall Hazard openly talked about his desire to go to Real Madrid last summer, but the Royal Club didn’t dare to make an offer to the player who personally led the Belgium national team to bronze medals at the World Cup in Russia.
In the course of this season, in which he scored 15 goals in 31 matches, Eden first announced that he was still torn between the dream of Real and the new contract with Chelsea, and then said that he had postponed the final decision on a new deal until the summer.
As it turns out now, Hazard may not renew his contract, which expires in 18 months. However, the 28-year-old Belgian has chosen not to reveal the intrigue.
In an interview with RMC Sport, Hazard said that he had made a decision and knew what to do then. Against the background of not the best Chelsea’s results under Maurizio Sarri rumors have already circulated in the press that Eden decided to leave London and move to Madrid.
