Hazard rules out Chelsea return

Eden Hazard has ruled out a return to his former club Chelsea after enduring yet another tough season with the Los Blancos. With Zidane leaving the club, Hazard’s future at Real Madrid could be in doubt as the Spanish side failed to win a single trophy last season.

Speaking to reporters ahead of their Euro 2020 group game, Hazard ruled out a return to Chelsea stating he is committed to Real Madrid. The Belgian added “I still have a three-year contract with Real Madrid, so going back to England is out of the question.”

Everyone knows that my first two years were not good, so first I want to prove myself at Real Madrid. I will do everything to do that. I certainly don’t see myself leaving Madrid, given the contract situation.”

I know myself and I know when I’m in shape. If that’s the case, I can give it my all for Real next season. That’s my plan.”

Being sidelined for most parts of the season due to injuries, Hazard admitted he is still recovering from an injury. He added “I’m fine, I train well and I can do it for another two weeks. I hope to be ready for the first match in Russia.”

Practice matches will do me good, it’s always good to be here with the group. It will be a great tournament to prepare for. I hope everyone is fit, including me. It will do me good to play some games to start well.”

I still have some pain in my thigh and I see what we are doing with the medical team and the manager. I couldn’t play the last game with Real Madrid so I had a week off and now it’s time to see if I have to train alone first or no.”

Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel admitted Chelsea are looking to sign a few players to strengthen the squad. The German added “Two or three could be very, very good. It’s a constant thing to never deny change.”

That you always bring new energy, new guys who question the old beliefs, who challenge everybody in the training and in matches, so I think it’s a good thing.”

We don’t need another seven and another complete turnover because it’s also our job to keep on improving, because we have still a young squad and it’s not about stealing from them the chance to prove it again that they are capable of growing and evolving.”

But we have some ideas, of course, to make the group stronger and I think this can always be a positive thing to challenge all of us.”
