According to the latest reports, Eden Hazard’s brother Thorgan Hazard has revealed that his elder brother Eden is not even thinking of a move to Real Madrid. This comes as a massive blow to La Liga giants Real Madrid and could potentially be great news for the Chelsea faithful.
The rumors that link Eden Hazard to Real Madrid just never seem to go away sadly for the Chelsea fans and ever since the departure of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid to Juventus in the summer transfer window for a transfer fee of £110m. The 33-year-old winger left the Santiago Bernabeu as the club’s all-time top goalscorer amassing 450 goals in nine seasons at Real Madrid leaving a massive void as well at the club. There is no doubt that any player in world football would be as good as a replacement for Ronaldo as the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, but Hazard is arguably the next best option.
Real Madrid made it no secret that Hazard was one of their prime targets in the summer transfer window and even the Belgian revealed that it would be a dream come true to play for the Los Blancos. More so now, with Real Madrid struggling, they will be even more desperate to land the high flying Hazard in the winter transfer window. Hazard has made a stunning start this season scoring eight goals and notching up four assists already in all competitions this campaign. His showings have helped Maurizio Sarri’s side to the third spot in the Premier League and also get past the Europa League group stages. Hazard scored an incredible winner at Anfield earlier this season which dumped Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool out of the League Cup handing the German his first loss of the season.
These impeccable performances are closely being viewed by Real Madrid who is in dire need of a play-maker like the Chelsea talisman. Eden Hazard’s brother Thorgan, who plays in the Bundesliga for Borussia Monchengladbach, has revealed that his brother made the right choice by remaining at Stamford Bridge in the summer and shunning away the European champions. The 25-year-old Thorgan spoke to Belgian news outlet HNL and said, “Eden made the right decision to stay at Chelsea. Chelsea wasn’t keen on selling him and he had a strong start of the season. Real Madrid is in a complex period. They sacked their manager, key players left. They have to rebuild.
After giving the Chelsea fans some delight, Thorgan also stated that Hazard will know whenever he wants to leave the club and his decision will be the correct one, “I think Eden will see what happens at the end of the season. I know him. He is not thinking about a move right now. He will give everything for Chelsea. He does not want a clash with his club either. If he ever leaves, he will play it correctly.”
Hazard has been stalling a bumper contract extension with Chelsea so far which still means he could leave the club in January itself.
