Eden Hazard has revealed that Chelsea refused to sell him in the course of the summer transfer window.
He added that he happily accepted the club’s decision despite rumors of interests from some European heavyweights.
Regardless, the player continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid but insisted that he wouldn’t follow Courtois’ footsteps by forcing a move away from the club.
The player has apparently been flirting with Real Madrid with his recent comments but it appears he will finish the season at Chelsea.
In a chat with Telefoot, Hazard revealed: “Chelsea were clear to me’ I could not leave. I accepted it”.
“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.”
The Belgium international joined Chelsea from Lille in June 2012, and his current contract with Chelsea runs out on June 2020.
