Hazard Opens Up On Chelsea Future And Answers Whether He’d Follow Zidane To United

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has again been talking about his future at the Blues.

The Belgian international has 18 months left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and speaking to France Football magazine, the 28-year-old said he remains undecided on his future plans:

“After the World Cup, I wanted to leave, but in the end, I stayed at Chelsea and I’m playing one of the best seasons so far. So I don’t think that I need a different challenge. But that doesn’t mean that I will become better.”

[Would a move to Real please me?] Why not? You know it very well, you’re asking the question, but you know what the answer will be. So, you don’t have to ask it.”


Hazard once again expressed his admiration for former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, but he confirmed he would not join Manchester United if the Frenchman was named as successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford:

“[Without Zidane] it’s different, but still, Real If [Zidane] goes to Manchester tomorrow, for instance, I will not be going there.”

The Belgian has made 328 appearances for the Blues since arriving from Lille six and a half years ago. He has won two Premier League titles, a FA Cup and the League Cup during his stay in England but he has so far refused to commit his long term future to Chelsea.

Hazard has been in good form this campaign, having scored 12 goals and provided ten assists in 28 games for Maurizio Sarri’s side.
