Eden Hazard still 'dreaming' of Real Madrid

Eden Hazard still 'dreaming' of Real Madrid

Gab Marcotti explains how Chelsea's managerial situation will play into Eden Hazard's decision to stay at Stamford Bridge or leave for Real Madrid.

Although Hazard did remain tight-lipped when the subject of Real Madrid was mentioned insisting that he will have to see after the World Cup.

Hazard is believed to be one of Real's primary transfer targets should Cristiano Ronaldo join Juventus, with the 33-year-old closing in on an £88million move to Turin.

"I'm fine at Chelsea and, for now, nobody has presented me with an offer", Hazard told BeIN Sports.

For now, it's the World Cup.

The signing also strikes a blow for the profile of Serie A against La Liga, which has now lost two of its three most famous players in the previous year after Paris St Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona last August. It has been a exciting time for, full of success and difficulties as there is a lot of pressure to succeed at Real Madrid, but I know that I will never forget how much I have enjoyed football here.


"Real Madrid have conquered my heart, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thank you to the club, the President, the directors, my colleagues, all the technicians, doctors, physios and incredible workers that make everything work and that are pending every detail tirelessly".

"Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey [of Madrid] is special but the blue jersey [of Chelsea] suits me well so it does not bother me if I stay".

According to Madrid-based paper Marca, the club have a superstar-filled list of alternatives to fill the Portuguese's sizable boots - chief among those being Tottenham's Harry Kane.

Hazard is yet to sign a new contract with Chelsea as he is still at the World Cup with Belgium in Russian Federation, where he has played a starring role in their run to the semi-finals.

If Real Madrid do indeed want to sign Hazard, they will certainly have to shell out staggering sums of money to do so.
