Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has shot down rumours linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge – at least for the time being.
Hazard reminded fans of his superstar quality yesterday afternoon as he crafted the game-winning goal scored by Marcos Alonso after coming on as a substitute in Chelsea’s 3-2 victory against Arsenal.
In a report published by The Sun this morning – the Belgian is understood to be happy at the club.
As per the Sun, Hazard told French broadcaster RMC: “I am happy at Chelsea for now. I have two years left on my contract, and we will see what happens.
“Leave this year? I won’t go. The transfer window in England is already closed. Players can leave, but clubs can’t make new signings. It would be strange for Chelsea’s people to let me go without signing anyone to replace me.”
“You could see once again in the Arsenal game that the fans love me, and I am happy here. We will see what happens in a year or two’s time.”
“You know what I said after the World Cup finals. I am happy at Chelsea and I don’t yet want to talk about leaving.
Hazard seems to closed the door on an exit away from Stamford Bridge for the time being, something that all Blues fans will be delighted to hear.
Chelsea fans will be hoping that the Belgian can lead the club to glory in the Premier League this season following the club’s impressive start to life under Italian Maurizio Sarri.
Hazard may well see his long-term future away from west London, but for now, it seems like one of the summer’s most drawn out transfer saga’s seems to have come to a close.
Will rumours of Hazard leaving come to fruition in the future? Most likely.
But for now, it seems like Blues fans can breath a sigh of relief regarding Hazard’s future with the club.
