Thorgan Hazard hints at permanent Chelsea exit

Thorgan Hazard has admitted that he is open to leaving Chelsea again next summer, hinting at a potential permanent move to current club Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Belgian star, brother to Chelsea star Eden Hazard, is yet to make his competitive debut for the Blues despite joining from Lens in 2012. He spent two years on loan at Belgian sie Zulte Waregem before joining Monchengladbach in the summer.

Hazard went straight into the first team at the Bundesliga club and scored his first goal for the club in a 3-2 win over Hertha Berlin at the weekend. Unsurprisingly, Gladbach manager Lucien Favre is reportedly keen to have Hazard beyond his current loan spell.

Open to staying

And the 21-year-old has revealed he is open to staying in the Bundesliga beyond the current season. That is despite the fact that Jose Mourinho was reportedly ready to offer him a place in the Chelsea first team should he enjoy a successful spell in Germany.

"It's an option to stay at Gladbach longer," Hazard is quoted in The Express as saying. "But it's just too early to talk about it now.

"The decision will be made towards the end of the season. I feel great here."

The younger of the Hazard brothers was believed to have been signed by Chelsea at the direct request of Eden, who himself had moved to Stamford Bridge just months before. However, after a successful two years with Zulte Waregem, it appears there is a chance Thorgan could emulate his brother's achievements.

Selling club

He was named Player of the Year for the Jupiler League last term and he has continued to impress for Gladbach. However, competing for a place with his brother, who himself won the PFA Young Player of the Year last season, is a daunting prospect.

After making his international debut last year, it is clear Thorgan has the potential to succeed at the highest level but there is always the chance Chelsea could cash in on the prospect.
