La Liga man specifically asked if Chelsea ‘ever called him’ – admits he may leave the club next summer

Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed there has been no transfer approach from the west London club since leaving Stamford Bridge.

The striker spent seven seasons with the Blues, where he enjoyed an impressive spell with them, winning every domestic competition in England and also the Europa League twice.

He left Chelsea for Real Madrid in 2019 and has failed to replicate his Blues form for La Liga winners. Hazard has seven goals and 11 assists in 72 games in all competitions for Los Blancos over three years.

The Belgian international’s struggles at Real Madrid have linked him with a return to the Premier League side. Marca sat down for an interview with the 31-year-old, where he was asked if there was any ‘real option’ for him to leave the Bernabeu.

“[Without finishing the question] No, no,” Hazard said.

Marca asked the player if ‘Chelsea ever called him’, perhaps when Marina Granovskaia was the director of the English club. Responding to that, he said, “No. Chelsea hasn’t called me; I have no idea where this news is coming from.

Hazard, however, has opened the door to a possible departure from Real Madrid at the end of this season.

“In January it is impossible, because I have a family and I like the city. But in summer I may go. I have one more year [next June] on my contract and it is the club’s decision, ”he explained.

“If the club tells me ‘Eden, thanks for four years, but you have to go’, I have to accept it because it’s normal. But I would like to play more, show more that I can play, that I am a good player”.

The former Chelsea man cannot pinpoint a reason for his problems at Real Madrid over the years.

“But that has always happened [arriving overweight from preseason]. All seasons with me are the same: during the season I have to work and play football, but when I have three weeks to rest, I rest and I am not going to change, “Hazard stressed.

“This story was four years ago, although it was reality, but then I did an incredible two months before the injury. Then I haven’t been lucky because of the confinement and many things, like many injuries in the second year. During my years at Chelsea I played 500 games without injuries or anything, and then in two years all these injuries… It’s something I can’t explain.
