The Belgian National Team midfielder, Eden Hazard finally remained at Stamford Bridge after previously being rumored to be leaving Chelsea and closely linked with Spanish La Liga giants, Real Madrid. However, his father admitted that his son really wanted to dock at the Santiago Bernabeu.
As is known, Eden Hazard has been part of Chelsea since 2012, so far he has helped the Blues win three Premier League trophies, including in the 2016/17 season. But in the 2017/18 campaign yesterday, the situation was not very friendly for Hazard. The person in question is often demoted to striker Antonio Conte’s position, a position that is not ideal for the Belgian player.
In the end, Chelsea not only failed to defend the Premier League trophy, but also could not penetrate the top 4 of the final standings or not advance to the European Champions League next season. This situation makes the player disappointed, and then tells his plan to leave Chelsea, after bringing Belgium to win the 3rd place at the 2018 World Cup yesterday.
Real Madrid are a team closely linked with Hazard, except that somehow Hazard stayed at Stamford Bridge. Related to this, Hazard’s father, Thierry Hazard, could not speak much, only he admitted that his son did want to join Real Madrid.
“It can be a different story if Zidane continues to serve as Real Madrid coach, but he has a reason to leave. I can’t say what happened. Maybe Real Madrid has a policy to provide opportunities for young people. Eden has another year in his contract next summer, and maybe he will still end at Real,” told Hazard on Belgian newspaper, Hiet Niewuwsblad.
