De Bruyne: "I don't expect change on the Hazard move for 4-5 days..."
The Manchester City and Belgium player felt that the deal between Chelsea and Real Madrid would not be confirmed until after the international break.
Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City) spoke to the media ahead of Belgium's Euro 2020 qualifying game against Kazakhstan on Saturday and focused on the situation involving his international team-mate Eden Hazard and his possible move to Real Madrid.
"Eden has worked this week as he has done the rest. We're professionals and know what we need to do in the next few days and then we'll go on holiday. We all see him moving to Spain and I imagine after the international break his move to Real Madrid will be resolved. If anything definitive happens, I'd say it will happen in the next four to five days. There is no rush now and after these games he'll have plenty of time ahead".
The City player also reflected on his season, being absent for long spells due to injury. "I spent five months out of action due to injury but fortunately was back to play in the last eight-ten games with City. I don't feel tired but am looking forward to a holiday after a season fraught with bad luck but I was pleased to be able to play in the final few games with the club".
