Media: Hazard will inform Chelsea’s leadership about his intention to go to Madrid
Chelsea striker Eden Hazard’s plans regarding his future have become known. The day before, on February 5, the Belgian announced that he had made a decision and already knew how he would act in the near future.
According to The Telegraph, the 28-year-old forward has decided not to remain at the London club for the next season and will say that to the club management soon. Negotiations between Hazard and Chelsea, regarding the contract extension, have not been progressing for a long time. The player’s current agreement is calculated until the summer of 2020.
Also, the publication claims that Hazard’s decision was made due to the fact that Real Madrid informed the player about their intention to make Chelsea a transfer offer after the end of that season. The Blues value the player at £100m (€113m).
