Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano has given Chelsea fans an update on the possible CHELSEA return of Eden Hazard.
After developing into one of the best players in the Premier League, scoring 110 goals and registering 92 assists in 352 matches in all competitions, and helping the club to numerous titles during his stay in England, Real Madrid came calling for the Belgian star.
The 32-year-old racked up 76 appearances, scored seven goals, and recorded 12 assists for Carlo Ancelotti’s side during a hugely disappointing time at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
But He claimed many titles with Real Madrid including two La Liga titles, Copa del Rey, Supercopa de España, UEFA Champions League, and UEFA Super Cup, which is quite an achievement for a player that spent most of his time on the bench.
He is no a free agent after failing to agree a new contract at Madrid and with no offers on the table, has been waiting for his next club to come in and make him an offer for the next 12 months.
WHAT IS THE LATEST –
Romano has told CaughtOffside: ‘“There’s a lot being speculated about Eden Hazard, who remains a free agent, but at the moment I’m not aware of anything concrete.
‘There are a lot of rumours, but nothing advanced, because at the moment Hazard is still discussing with his family and those close to him about retirement. Retirement for Hazard is a concrete possibility, but it’s not a final decision yet, and I think when we talk about a big decision like this for an important player like Hazard, I like to be respectful.
‘It’s the player who has to decide and communicate, not for me or other journalists in general. For sure he’s considering retirement, but let’s see what he will decide, and I can say that all the rumours about Belgian clubs, or a return to CHELSEA or other clubs, none of this was concrete or true.”
