Chelsea

Hazard's fate is sealed

5th February 2019, 12:23 by Neil Foster

Eden Hazard says he knows what he will do in the summer as he continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid.

The 28-year-old, who is in his seventh season with Chelsea, has enjoyed another productive campaign and notched 12 Premier League goals from 24 outings.

However, rumours that he is keen to try his luck elsewhere will not go away, with Real said to be in the box seat for his signature.

The Belgium playmaker will not come cheap but Los Blancos appear keen to add more creativity to their ranks and Hazard fits the bill.

It remains to be seen what happens at the end of the campaign but, according to RMC as reported by the London Evening Standard, Hazard said: "I know what I am going to do. I have made a decision."

Blues fans will hope that he has decided to stay in west London but the smart money is on a move to Spain despite the fact he has been offered improved deals by his present employers.

Despite the dominance of the Champions League, Real have fallen behind Barcelona domestically and need a spark in midfield to close the gap.
