Chelsea star sends clear message to Eden Hazard over Real Madrid transfer

Chelsea winger Willian has made it clear he hopes Eden Hazard stays at the club instead of sealing a transfer to Real Madrid.

This puts Chelsea under real pressure to cash in on Hazard soon or risk losing him on a free transfer at the end of next season.

The Telegraph are among the outlets to strongly link the 28-year-old as a top transfer target for Real Madrid, and have stated Chelsea seem increasingly resigned to losing their star player.

Willian, however, says Hazard himself has not mentioned anything about a move to the Bernabeu, as he essentially pleaded with him to stay at Stamford Bridge when he spoke in a press conference this evening.
