Eden Hazard to Real Madrid: Chelsea laughs off talk of move to Spanish giants while with Belgium on Euro 2020 duty

Chelsea's star man Eden Hazard has played down reports he has agreed to join Real Madrid this summer.

Hazard's current contract at Stamford Bridge expires next summer and talk continues to spread about him making a move to Spain with Real Madrid for next season.

The arrival of Zinedine Zidane and the apparent rebuilding process that's needed at Real would make the timing perfect for the team to move for the Belgian.

Chelsea 3/1 | Real Madrid 1/4


Hazard has at times flirted with the idea of joining Real Madrid, but while on international duty with Belgium he rejected reports that he had already agreed on a contract.

"There's nothing in the reports," he said on Saturday. "I'm only focused on tomorrow's game against Cyprus.

"That's all I'm thinking about."

Hazard scored twice against Russia on Thursday to continue his excellent season, which will only add to his appeal for Real.

Chelsea's reluctance to sell, apart from the obvious reason of losing their best player, comes in their impending transfer ban, which would prevent them from signing a replacement this summer, as it stands.

That ban, though, could also be a reason for Hazard to look for a move away, and if he refuses to sign a new contract then the club have the worst-case scenario of him leaving for free the year after.
