Eden Hazard’s form so far this season has been nothing short of phenomenal, but such good performances bring more and more transfer rumours. The only side he is being linked to at the moment is Real Madrid, the same club that have been sniffing around the Belgian for a few years, and the player himself hasn’t ruled himself out of a future move.
However, over the last week, Hazard has admitted that he won’t leave Stamford Bridge in January regardless of any concrete offers that his current employers might receive. The pint-sized wizard has said most recently that he will only leave the Blues “on good terms”, alluding to the fact that he will not force them into a sale.

“I will never clash with a club. If I leave Chelsea, I will leave on good terms.”
