£88m Chelsea star fuels transfer rumours following reported contract rejection

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has fuelled transfer speculation as he admits wearing the white shirt of Real Madrid is every player’s dream.

Though the Belgium international also stressed he’d be happy to stay at Chelsea, this quote follows talks that the player could be looking for a way out of Stamford Bridge and to the Bernabeu.

Marca recently claimed Hazard’s father offered his son to Real Madrid before the Champions League final at the end of last season, while Don Balon reported that the 27-year-old, valued at around £88million, had rejected a new contract at Chelsea.

Blues fans could have some cause for concern as their club is now out of the Champions League for the upcoming season, which means keeping big names like Hazard will surely be more of a challenge.

The former Lille star also has a contract until 2020, which means it won’t be too long before they’re unable to charge a big price tag for him if he doesn’t extend that deal.

“Does Real make me dream less without (Zinedine) Zidane?” Hazard told beIN SPORTS, as quoted by the Daily Star.
