Report from Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur indicates that Eden Hazard is angling for a switch to Real Madrid. The Belgian has been repeatedly linked with a move to Real Madrid but the move has failed to materialize all this while.
According toTerreur, Hazard supported Madrid as a child but insists that the move to Real Madrid may limit his match action. He made this known in a chat with Transfer Window Podcast:
“He keeps all options open like he did in the last few years.
“He’s now 27 and it’s now or never”
“On Tuesday he told me he is open for a new challenge but on the other hand he’s happy at Chelsea. He said wherever I end up I will be happy.
“I think he is still hoping Real Madrid come in for him. He’s a childhood Real Madrid fan, he’s been hoping for the move for a few years.
“He’s now 27 and it’s now or never. Players are ambitious and want to win the biggest trophies and he’s still keen to win the Champions League.
“That’s why he also said in the week he wants to see what players Chelsea are signing before he commits his future to the club because he wants to challenge for trophies.
“We will have to see as for me, it’s always between Real Madrid and Chelsea.
“If he goes to Real, I don’t think he will be first choice, so otherwise he signs a long-term deal with Chelsea.
“There’s always been talk of PSG but he’s always emphasised he doesn’t want to go back to France. He’s won Ligue 1 so I don’t see him going back to France – it’s Chelsea or Real Madrid.”
