Chelsea fans will be forced to wait until summer over Hazard renewal

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has said that he does not expect a decision soon over Eden Hazard‘s future.

Madrid have long been interested in Hazard with club president Florentino Perez a big admirer of the 24-year-old.

Having lost Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus last summer, Madrid have been crying out for someone to take the former number seven’s mantel, having seen both Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale become inconsistent.

Perez believes Hazard is the perfect option to see Madrid push Barcelona and Atletico Madrid for the La Liga title, having failed to do so last season and this season, thus far.

Hazard is said to be keen on a move to the Santiago Bernabeu and follow in the footsteps of Thibaut Courtois, who moved to to Madrid this summer from the Blues.

Hazard is entering the final 18 months of his deal in London and has been linked with an exit to Spain for sometime, whilst a new contract at Stamford Bridge has also been mentioned.

However, Italian boss Sarri has told reporters that a decision from the Belgian international is unlikely until the end of the season.

“It is not yet decided whether he wants to stay here or if he wants a new experience in another I think Eden does not know at the moment,” Sarri said.
