Eden Hazard mentioned about his interest in moving to Real Madrid and says they are aware of what they need to do if they want to sign him from Chelsea.
According to a report by SkySports, Eden Hazard recently talked about his demand for an improved Chelsea squad, which can challenge for a Champions League spot next season, or else he may make a move away from the Blues this summer. Adding to it, he gave an invite to Florentino Perez to make a move by stating that Real Madrid are aware of what they need to do.
Eden Hazard joined Chelsea in 2012 and played a crucial part in Chelsea winning two Premier League titles in three seasons, a Europa League in 2013 and the FA Cup triumph last season. The 2014-2015 PFA player of the year struggled to make a significant impact last season, where he only bagged 17 goals and 7 assists in 51 appearances across all competitions.
Real Madrid, Champions League winners for the third time in a row, were interested in signing Hazard when Zinedine Zidane was in charge as he was impressed by Hazard’s blistering pace and ability to beat defenders through his skillful dribbling.
But under new manager Julen Lopetegui, Real’s long ongoing interest in Hazard is now unclear. All of this while the Belgian captain openly invited Los Blancos to make a quick move as he said “Real Madrid could interest me, the world knows that. But if tomorrow this club does not want me any longer then we will not speak about it any longer.”
Therefore, it is clear that Real Madrid’s three successive Champions League triumphs are clearly luring Hazard, as he has won everything with the Blues except the coveted medal, and with Chelsea not qualifying for it next season, Hazard could leave Stamford Bridge and join Real Madrid to live his dream of lifting the European crown.
Furthermore, according to additional claims by SkySports, Hazard wants clarity over whether or not Antonio Conte will be in charge at Chelsea, before committing to the club on his return from Russia. Additionally, he wants better signings by Chelsea for next season as he said “If I stay it’s for the club to be better than last season. I don’t want to stay for us to be poorer.”
In contrast, Chelsea are reluctant to pay up Conte’s compensation in lump sum and are still in negotiations for the appointment of Maurizio Sarri. Adding to it, they have made an equally sluggish start to this summer’s dealings, while rivals Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have already made several noteworthy additions to their squads.
Hazard is likely to arouse a move, if he sees no more scope with the West London club, therefore Chelsea will have to make amends quickly if they want to keep him away from the clutches of Real Madrid. But, it is clear that any development in the move will not take place before his time at World Cup as Hazard is busy focusing on his campaign with the Belgian squad.
