Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has stated that it is important that Eden Hazard does not leave Chelsea.
The England midfielder hopes that his dream of playing alongside the Belgian for many years is not scuppered.
The Belgian recently spoke about his childhood desire to play for Real Madrid. His comments suggested he’s looking forward to a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
When Barkley was asked about the Blues playmaker, he responded:
“It’s important (that Hazard stays).
“He’s been at Chelsea for a long time now and he’s achieved so much. I can’t speak for Eden, he knows in his mind what he wants. But I’d love to play with him for many more years ahead.”
“He’s inspirational, a magnificent player.
“You can see how he’s started the season and the World Cup that he had, you don’t get many players like him. He’s capable of magic at any moment.
“Playing with world-class players is always going to improve me, and to play with them, to train with them on a day to day basis, you see the speed of thought, you see how much enjoyment they have in football and it has a big effect on yourself.”
