Hazard aplaude con el Chelsea

Eden Hazard has denied any truth in the rumours linking him with a Stamford Bridge exit this summer, despite the Chelsea support turning on the reigning PFA Player of the Year after a disappointing season for the Belgian and the Londoners in general.

Hazard has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months, particularly in light of Zinedine Zidane’s professed admiration of the former Lille midfielder. But the 25-year-old poured cold water on such speculation in an interview with Belgian television channel ACTV: “Have I signed for Real Madrid? No, that isn’t true; I don’t know where that has come from,” Hazard said. “For the moment I’m at Chelsea. I have to finish this season and then I have four more years on my contract. For now I’m here and the only thing I want is to get back onto the pitch as soon as possible.”

Hazard has missed Chelsea’s last three Premier League matches due to a hip problem. “I’m ok, I’ve been training for the last three days. I’ve pushed myself but I hope to be ready for the games that are coming up. I’m impatient to get back.”
