Eden Hazard committed to Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has ended speculation over his future by committing to Jose Mourinho’s side.

The gifted midfielder has been heavily linked to Real Madrid this season, although earlier this week Jose Mourinho joked that the Spanish giants would have to pay £200m for the Belgian superstar - £100m for each leg.

Now speaking to Sky Sports News, Hazard clarified his future by saying: “I am happy here.”

Earlier in Hazard’s career he name checked Real Madrid as an ideal destination for him at some point in his career.

The rumour mill then went into overdrive when Zinedine Zidane, current Castilla boss and potentially a future Real Madrid manager, lavished praise on the Stamford Bridge goalscorer.

Hazard, who is expected to scoop the PFA Player of the Year award later this season, admitted that he’s flattered to hear praise from a legend like Zidane, but assured Chelsea fans that his thoughts are very much with the London club.

"He says that because he knows I loved him when I was young, and for me it's very good because when I heard that... Every time somebody says something it's special, but when it's Zidane, yeah, it's very good," Hazard said.

When asked if he thinks he’ll be at Chelsea for the long-term, he continued: “Why not? I’m happy here.

Happy at Chelsea

“I play with big players and the most important thing is I want to win trophies and, with this club, it is possible.”

It looks likely that Hazard will be winning a team trophy to go alongside the Player of the Year gong, with Chelsea comfortably clear at the top of the Premier League table.

Great news then, Chelsea fans - just how important is Hazard to your team?
