Eden Hazard not leaving Real Madrid in January

0

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti recently said some things that prompted reports heavy with speculation about Eden Hazard’s departure from the club in the January transfer window, with a return to Chelsea mentioned as one of the options.

“The problem [Hazard] has right now is he has a coach who prefers another player,” Ancelotti said in his press conference ahead of Madrid’s La Liga game with Osasuna last week. “That can happen in a squad like Real Madrid’s. What’s important is the player has the motivation to work to play. He is doing that.”

However, Marca report that the 30-year-old Belgian winger, who arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2019 for a reported fee of around €120 million, has no intention of leaving the Spanish capital just yet.

His contract with Real runs until the summer of 2024.
