Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been linked with a move away from club recently. Various media outlets have linked the star with a move to Real Madrid, PSG and even Man Utd. But, much to the relief of the Blues fans, Hazard’s father has ruled out any imminent transfer move for his son.
Thierry Hazard has insisted that his son is solely focussed on Chelsea at the moment, and his aim is to help them finish as high as possible in Premier League.
“Eden is completely focused on Chelsea,” began Thierry. “He still has ambition. Winning the title is complicated, but to finish in the top three is still possible.”
The Belgian is currently ruled out with an injury and will be looking to make his way back in the starting eleven under manager Guus Hiddink. The Blues have shown an improvement in their form Hiddink, but they still find themselves in the 14th position in the table.
They find themselves 13 points adrift of Champions League places and it will be a huge task for them to finish in the top four. However, the Blues still have Champions League and FA Cup campaigns to look forward this season.
The latest comments from Hazard Sr. have ruled out a January move for the star, but the summer will be a different story altogether.
Football pundit Stan Collymore has urged the Premier League champions to sell off their star player if they get a decent amount of money for him.
“If Real Madrid or Bayern Munich offer £60 million for Eden Hazard in the summer then Chelsea should bite their hands off,” the former Liverpool and Nottingham Forest star said in his column for the Mirror.
“Should he get his move to Real I’m convinced he will end up getting eaten up and spat out to a Schalke or a Bayer Leverkusen in two or three years, leaving Chelsea laughing all the way to the bank.”
