Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas becomes the latest person to chime in on the ongoing speculation regarding the future of Eden Hazard as the Spaniard has recently revealed what the Belgian superstar has told him regarding a potential move to Real Madrid.
Chelsea are reportedly furious with former goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, after the Belgian criticised the club’s sporting director Marina Granovskaia for reneging on an agreement to sell him last summer.

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.
He claimed that he was not allowed to leave West London following his sparkling World Cup showing, “Chelsea were clear to me, I could not leave, I accepted it,” he explained to Telefoot. “Leaving or staying, I knew I was going to be happy. I do not regret at all.
“I will never clash with a club. If I leave Chelsea, I will leave on good terms.”
It sounded almost like an indirect dig at his international team-mate, Thibaut Courtois, who left the club under a cloud of smoke over the summer. The towering goalkeeper went behind the back of the Chelsea officials and used the 12 months left on his contract to force through a move to the Spanish capital.
After agreeing a six-year contract with Los Blancos, the former Atletico shot-stopper made it clear that he wanted Hazard to follow him and while he still might, it didn’t materialise straight away. The current Premier League leading scorer has said that he won’t jump into a decision whether it be over a new deal with Chelsea or a transfer to Real Madrid but it certainly looks like he’ll see out the 2018/19 campaign in London.
Mateo Kovacic has handed Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri a massive boost by saying he can imagine himself staying at west London on a permanent deal.
The ongoing transfer story of the summer linked Eden Hazard with Real Madrid, a rumour that gained pace when his international team-mate Thibaut Courtois made the switch to the Spanish capital. However, with just a week and a half left of the La Liga window, Hazard looks to be staying put until January at least when Los Blancos will probably renew their interest in an attempt to unsettle the Belgium star.

Thibaut Courtois certainly won’t have any friends left in West London on the back of his £35 million to Real Madrid on deadline day. Not only did the World Cup Golden Glove winner show a lack of respect towards the club but also the fans with some behaviour that doesn’t reciprocate the love he was shown during his time with the Blues.
New Chelsea signing Mateo Kovacic has admitted he sought advice from Luka Modric, who played for Tottenham Hotspur as a midfielder, regarding the England top-flight as well as life in London.

Despite only managing a third-place finish at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Belgium were considered as many by the tournament’s best performers.

After winning his third consecutive Champions League winners’ medal, Zinedine Zidane shocked the footballing world by resigning just five days after Los Blancos’ 3-1 victory over Liverpool in Kiev.

As we get ever closer to the Premier League’s busy festive schedule, it also means the January transfer window will be returning. One top-flight side who usually do plenty of business in January is Chelsea and they are often linked with some of the world’s top players. This season looks like it will be no different and this time, it’s Real Madrid youngster, Marco Asensio. The Spanish midfielder has reportedly kicked up a fuss about his lack of playing time at the Santiago Bernabeu and will join the Blues if his demands of more time on the pitch aren’t met at Real Madrid.
