Real Madrid rumours are not true – Eden Hazard


Chelsea winger Eden Hazard says rumours he has agreed to join Real Madrid this summer are not true.

The Belgium international has long attracted the interest of the 10-time Champions League winners and this week reports in Spain suggested the 25-year-old has agreed a deal to sign for the Santiago Bernabeu side.

But last season’s PFA Player of the Year and Football Writers’ Footballer of the Year told ACTV that those reports are untrue and his is concentrating on his career with Chelsea.

The winger, currently sidelined with a hip injury, stated: “I don’t know who is saying that, but it’s not true. At the moment, I’m at Chelsea. First I have to finish the season and I still have a contract for four years. I’m there and I’m currently feeling good over there. I want to be on the pitch as soon as possible – with Chelsea.”

Despite denying the reports about a move to the Spanish capital, Hazard is just the type of player Real could be on the lookout for in the summer. With the futures of James Rodriguez and Isco both up in the air along with a potential two-transfer window ban that could come into force, Los Blancos are expected to bolster their squad significant in the close season.
