Many a Chelsea fan will believe that Eden Hazard has one foot out of the door at Stamford Bridge, and that Real Madrid will be where he signs a contract – this isn’t new news, far from it.
However, French news source Le Foot report that Chelsea maintain ‘hope’ that a new contract materialise from the Blues for Eden Hazard and that the Belgian will pen an extension beyond 2020.
Also in the report is the revelation that Real Madrid have indeed made an approach for Eden Hazard, but it has been rebuffed as it fell way below what Chelsea believe to be the value of of their top goal scorer.
A lot has gone in recent weeks at the club – doubts over Maurizio Sarri’s future, a transfer ban for two windows and the whole Kepa situation after the Carabao Cup final.
Chelsea fans would surely welcome Hazard signing an extension to his deal, similar to what Antoine Griezmann did at Atletico Madrid after they were also handed a transfer ban – the Frenchman committed to the club to help them through the embargo period.
