Eden Hazard is nearing Real Madrid move with Chelsea exit plans
Eden Hazard enjoyed a very good World Cup helping Belgium to secure third place. He scored the winner against England for the third place play-off. Belgium convincingly takes the Bronze medal with 2-0 victory over Three Lions. However, he was furious with defeat against France in semi-final; he was calm after victory against England and dropped a major hint on his next destination. He finally confirms his desire to move away from Chelsea and nearing a dream transfer to Real Madrid.
Hazard told reporters, “After six wonderful years at Chelsea, it might be time to discover something different. I can decide if I want to stay or go, but Chelsea will make the final decision. For my career, certainly after this World Cup, I’m at a moment where I might change. I’ll go on holiday and ask myself right questions.”
Hazard has his priority clear. He told BeIN Sports last week, “I think Real Madrid is everyone’s dream. Zidane or no Zidane, the white shirt is special.”
But, Chelsea winger also has also been linked up with Barcelona as well. Spanish daily Sport reported that Barcelona has already started discussion with his agent. Toying with these reports Hazard said, “We all know that I’ve felt well at Chelsea, and I’ve always been linked to all the big clubs. Next week it will be Bayern (Munich). No I’m joking. You all know my preferred destinations.”
Hazard is still with Belgium squad and back in London, Chelsea have appointed Maurizio Sarri as new coach. It might have something to do with his plans, but it seems Belgian star has totally lacked interest in Chelsea’s future project.
Sport adds to their report that former Chelsea man Michael Laudrup’s brother has a word with Hazard recently. Brian Luadrup told Sportske Novosti in his native Denmark, “I spoke with Hazard few days ago and he told me that he’s preparing for a move to Real Madrid. I think it will be a good decision for me as well as Real Madrid because you’re talking about a world class player here.”
He is ready to make a move away and his dream club Real Madrid is in hunt to replace their big loss in Cristiano Ronaldo. Big names like Neymar and Kylian Mbappe has been linked with European giant, but they’ve official rejected any approach made to PSG duo.
It makes one thing clear, that they’re in advance talk with Hazard. Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez is a big admirer of Hazard and he’ll also fit in Real Madrid’s new boss Julen Lopetegui’s plan. We may hear the big news next week, get excited… Real Madrid fans.
