Champions League winners stance on stunning Chelsea move revealed
CHELSEA fans have been sent a clear message about the possible return of Belgian star Eden Hazard on a free deal.
The 32-year-old racked up 76 appearances, scored seven goals, and recorded 12 assists for Carlo Ancelotti’s side during a hugely disappointing time at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
But He claimed many titles with Real Madrid including two La Liga titles, Copa del Rey, Supercopa de España, UEFA Champions League, and UEFA Super Cup, which is quite an achievement for a player that spent most of his time on the bench.
He is no a free agent after failing to agree a new contract at Madrid and has been waiting for his next club to come in and make him an offer for the next 12 months.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID –
Now, according to CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs, a return to SW6 was never an option for Hazard. “Eden Hazard is still a free agent and hasn’t yet decided if he wants to move to a new club,” he told Caught Offside. “This is because retirement is also a possibility for the former Real Madrid and Chelsea attacking midfielder.
“A return to CHELSEA was never an option for the 32-year-old. That rumour was fueled by Hazard being seen at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea’s season opener against Liverpool. Hazard never played a role in attracting fellow Belgian Romeo Lavia to Chelsea, but a Chelsea return was never discussed.
“Hazard hasn’t actually been short of offers. Al-Hilal made an enquiry earlier this summer. Hazard also had some MLS options, including interest from Inter Miami. A return to Lille was also discussed by the Ligue 1 club. And Nice considered Hazard as well.
“But the truth is Hazard hasn’t really spent the summer deliberating between clubs because before he can do that he has to decide if he wants to keep playing.”
