Real Madrid target Eden Hazard opens up and tells Chelsea ‘future can wait’
Guest post Iomie
Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has admitted that he is no rush to decide whether or not he is staying or leaving for Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Hazard has already scored 10 goals and provided nine assists in the Premier League this season and the Belgians performances have kept Madrid eyeing up a potential £200 million deal.
Recent reports even suggested that Madrid are so keen to nail down Hazard, that they are prepared to offer unhappy midfielder Isco and Mateo Kovacic as part of the deal.
But Hazard, who passed 100 goals for Chelsea in the 2-1 win over Watford on Boxing day, has insisted he is in no rush to resolve his long-term plans.
“To be fair, I’m just focused on the pitch, and we’ll see at the end of the season,” he said on the Sky Sports website.
“I don’t know why, maybe I’m just nearer to the goal. My position is winger. I feel better as a winger, but [against Watford] I did well as a striker, and against Brighton I did well as a striker.
“The manager chooses where to put me on the pitch and then I try to do my best.”
Will Hazard stay?
Madrid will make an offer and that will tempt Hazard, but they are having some issues right now and are not looking like a side that will help him achieve his goals and if we can get back into the Champions League and maybe win some silverware this season, we have a great chance of keeping him at the club for the foreseeable future.
But if we don’t, then it will be very difficult to keep hold of the little superstar.
