Eden Hazard to Real Madrid?
Eden Hazard is undoubtedly in the form of his life and the majority Premier League loyal believe that he is the Best Player in the League. The Belgian has just under two years left on his current Chelsea contract and has been continuously linked to a move to Real Madrid. Hazard has been prolific for the Blues scoring 8 and assisting 4 in 10 appearances across all competitions and has been at the top of his game. So it came as no surprise when Spanish heavyweights Real Madrid came knocking for the 27-Year-Old Belgian, especially considering The Los Blancos have been abysmal in recent games.
"I love the fans – I think the fans love me! What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that's it." ❤️

According to Club Chairman, Bruce Buck Chelsea are ready to offer their star player a fresh £300,000 a week contract in order to “Entice him to stay”, Buck Said “Every Chelsea fan in London and around the world loves Eden Hazard, and he’s not only a great footballer but I think he’s a wonderful lad. We want him to stay and we will do what we have to do to entice him to stay.”
Hazard has made it pretty clear that he will not push for a move out of his immense love and respect for the Club and its fans. He has time and again specified that he not only wants what’s best for him but also wants what’s best for Chelsea, stating that the Club has given him “everything”.
British Newspaper Daily Mail has reported that Chelsea hope to see Eden Hazard put pen to paper before Christmas and initial talks suggest that the Contract could be worth around £300,000 a week which could mean the Belgian could surpass the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to become the Highest Paid player in the League.
Hazard has been extremely open about his thoughts and the chances of a move. “I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision.” He clearly seems torn between Madrid and London and his future remains a big question mark for Fans and Journalists alike.
Hazard has already made it clear that he won’t push for a move away and has even ruled out a move in the Winter Transfer Window. Chelsea Fans will be relieved and touched with Hazard’s professionalism and love for the Club especially after Compatriot Thibaut Courtois forced an “Ugly” move to Madrid almost burning all bridges with Chelsea.
Nothing is clear as of now but one thing can be said for sure, even if Eden Hazard leaves Chelsea, he will do so in a respectful and amicable manner. He will be clear about his intentions and in my opinion, the fact that he is so considerate makes him not only a great player but also a great human being and 20 years down the line when people talk about him that may be the only thing that matters.
