Real Madrid dealt massive blow in Eden Hazard chase
- Updated: December 28, 2018
Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has admitted he is keen on waiting until the end of the 2018-19 season before deciding on his long term future.
The Belgian who scored both the goals in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Watford on boxing day has time and again been linked with a move to Spain with Real Madrid reportedly interested in signing the forward.
The goals against Watford were the 27-year-old’s 100th and 101st goal in Chelsea colours. But Hazard has kept fans guessing about his future, with the Belgian claiming he wanted to be a Chelsea ‘legend’ after his landmark goal.
Hazard who has been one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League since he arrived in England 6 years ago will see his Chelsea deal expire in 2020. This season has been one of his best with the Belgian magician directly involved in 19 goals in 18 Premier League games.
“To be fair I’m just focused on the pitch, and we’ll see at the end of the season. I’m scoring more goals, I don’t feel I’m playing better, I’m just scoring more goals. I don’t know why, maybe I’m just nearer to the goal. My position is winger. I feel better as a winger, but today I did well as a striker, and against Brighton I did well as a striker. The manager chooses where to put me on the pitch and then I try to do my best. If you score 100 you want to score more, so I’ll try to score more goals. I’ve scored a couple of good ones through the years, so I can’t choose my favourite” Hazard said.
