We've said that it's not that he wants to leave Chelsea but if Madrid come in for him, that won't be an obstacle.
Chelsea had the final word, though, as the irrepressible Hazard sent Alvaro Morata clean through and the substitute chipped the ball over McCarthy. The player's speech gives more value sometimes, so with Hazard's words, I think he'd want to give it one more run in Chelsea's colours.
"I want what's good for me, but I want what's good for the club because the club has given me everything".
"I don't want to talk about this every day".
"Maybe I would have better evaluated the offers I had from Italy, even if I really wanted to not give up and stay in the Premier League". Eden is a winger, a pure winger, so I don't think it's possible for Eden to be top scorer in the league.
Only time will tell what the future holds for Hazard and what his departure would mean for us. It is a hard decision.
Hazard has scored seven times in the Premier League already this season.
Ronaldo and Messi are still up there as the best, but perhaps Hazard can make a case in the coming years if he moves to a club with significant resources. However, the interest from Real Madrid withheld Chelsea from getting an extension done before the start of the season, which was the team's initial goal.
The former Chelsea coach said he believed the Belgian had the talent, but had doubts over his goal scoring ability. "They missed big chances and then we have had a bit of luck for our first goal, but we controlled the match in the second half".
Though the Chelsea fans can't complain, the problem with such consistency is that it makes the sharks stand up and take notice. He has helped me a lot.
