Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur has confirmed that Eden Hazard will not be leaving Chelsea this summer.
All summer-long Hazard has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu. It’s become rather tiresome for Chelsea fans, who have been eagerly awaiting news on the future of our talisman.
Will he stay or will he go? Will he sign a new contract or will he follow Thibaut Courtois to Madrid? These questions needed answering, and now they have been.
Terreur posted the below information on Twitter on Monday, claiming that Hazard will return to Chelsea training today – and is going nowhere.
It may be slightly cliche, but keeping hold of Hazard is as good as any signing we could have made this summer. He’s the best player in the Premier League, and he’s only going to get better with Maurizio Sarri at the helm.
Whether Courtois stays or not is another story, word around Chelsea is he is far more replaceable than his compatriot.
