While Chelsea‘s fans are waiting for the signing of Gonzalo Higuain and Alvaro Morata’s move to Atletico Madrid, once again Eden Hazard hasn’t ruled out the chance of a future with Real Madrid.

When asked by France Football about his move to the current champions of Europe, the Blues’ star claimed:

Why not? I’ve seen all there is to see”. Hazard explained. “I‘ve won everything here: the two cups, the league, apart from the Community Shield, but that doesn’t mean I am going to leave. I have always said that, after England, I wanted to discover something else. But there are things that could make me stay too. I’m not far off the peak of my career, that’s sure. Even if things can always be better, that’s for sure too. I am at a crossroads, yes. We are going to take the right turn.”

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata upstaged teammate Cesc Fabregas on his last appearance with the Blues as the former Real Madrid star managed to score a brace which sent Maurizio Sarri‘s men to FA Cup Fourth Round on Saturday afternoon.

The ex Arsenal and Barcelona star, who missed a penalty in a tough first half at Stamford Bridge, then received a warm standing ovation as he left the pitch with five minutes left to go in the second period.

It is understood Fabregas will join AS Monaco in the next few days, after being handed the captain’s armband for his last game in a Chelsea shirt.

However, Alvaro Morata wanted to share his feelings via Instagram with an emotional post dedicated to his compatriot: “You do not know how much I’m going to miss you!” wrote the Spaniard.

“To you and your wonderful family, thank you very much for helping us in EVERYTHING possible.

“Thanks for all the moments lived and good luck in everything you do!”

Chelsea target Isco revealed he has no intention to leave Real Madrid in the foreseeable future.

The Spanish midfielder is lacking playing time under new Blancos manager Santiago Solari and some recent reports claimed Chelsea has offered £ 70m to bring to Stamford Bridge.

But Isco is adamant that he has no plans to leave Madrid:

“I’m very excited about the new year,” Isco told Deportes Cuatro.

“I’m not going to go in the winter market, I’m very happy, of course I want to continue with Madrid to continue winning titles.”

Mateo Kovacic is enjoying his stay at Chelsea and not only he said that coming to London has been a very good choice, but he also claims he would also like to play with the Blues, longer then his season-long loan.

“I think it was the most important thing I did for now in my career”. the midfielder told Sky Sports when asked about his move during the last summer transfer window. “It was a step I wanted a lot, I wanted to come here. I say thank you to my previous club, to Chelsea as well, who wanted me a lot. I am enjoying it and I like it a lot here. “For now, I am happy here. The city is amazing, the club is one of the best in the world, and my team-mates are great. I need to respect my previous club, Real Madrid. I can imagine myself staying here, but I have a contract I need to respect, and that is what I will do”.

If Mateo Kovacic would like a permanent move from Real Madrid to Chelsea, the Spanish giants, on the other hand, want to sign Eden Hazard:

For me, he is an incredible player,” Kovacic explained. “I did not know he was that good and he can easily be one of the two or three best players in the world. He asked me how it was there (at Real) but we are looking forward to having a great season together, to be fully concentrated on Chelsea. He is focused a lot on doing great things with Chelsea.”

According to OK Diario Eden Hazard will move to Real Madrid next January: the Spanish outlet reports that Chelsea have accepted that they are likely to lose the Belgian star, even in the start of 2019.

Los Blancos failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer transfer window after the Portuguese star moved to Juventus in July, and their shaky start to the season continued with a 3-0 defeat at Eibar on Saturday afternoon.

Hazard has been in fine form for Chelsea this term, managing eight goals and four assists in 15 appearances in all competitions, with seven of those strikes coming in the Premier League.

The Belgium international has admitted he’s got a lot of esteem of new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri but he will see his Blues contract expire at the end of next season and revealed during the summer that he dreams to move to Santiago Bernabéu.

Belgian star Eden Hazard has been linked many times with a possible move to Real Madrid.

However, in the last few days the player himself claimed he would be happy also to stay at Stamford Bridge for his entire career.

“I can finish with Chelsea,” Hazard said. No problem at all. I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here. So If I don’t go to Spain, it is not a problem. I love the fans – I think the fans love me! What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that’s it.”

Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has given his availability ahead of a potential move to Real Madrid if their current boss Julen Lopetegui is sacked, according to Italian publication Corriere dello Sport.

The Italian has reportedly rejected a move to Stamford Bridge last summer, when Zinedine Zidane suddenly announced his resignation from the managerial role at the club.

However, Conte would consider to become the new Real Madrid manager after just three months without leading the Blues.

Conte’s contract with Chelsea expires in 2019 and is entitled to £9m compensation, with additional money to his backroom staff.

The Italian newspaper believes Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has given three more games to current manager Lopetegui to avoid the sacking after less than six months at the La Liga giants.

During the last summer transfer window, Belgian star Eden Hazard seemed close to a move to the Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Then the Blues striker spoke with the new Chelsea’s manager Maurizio Sarri and now Hazard himself reveals how the Italian convinced him to stay at Stamford Bridge: “He just told me that he wanted me to be one of the best players in the world. That’s it. And he tried to give me this confidence… and he asked me to score goals”. Hazard told The Premier League Show. “When I speak with him he always says, “You can score three goals every game”. But you know sometimes he is hard, but I try to do my best.”

The Belgian then also praised Maurizio Sarri: “We knew that Sarri was a fantastic manager. He showed to England now that he’s maybe one of the best in the world”. he added. “So at the moment like I say we are playing good, we are scoring goals, creating chances. So it’s good to be here.”

Eden Hazard claims, again, that his dream has always been to play for Real Madrid and, soon or later, he will transfer to the Santiago Bernabéu, something that he wanted to do already to last summer:

“I spoke after the World Cup and I said that I think it is time to change because I played a great World Cup,” Hazard said on Sunday after Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Southampton.

“I am really in the game, I am playing good football at the moment.

Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club.

“We will see. I don’t want to talk about this every day. I don’t have time but we will talk about my future soon.”

Hazard is out of contract at the end of next season ( June 2020) which means once the current campaign ends, he’ll be in the same position as international team-mate and former Chelsea goalkeeeper Thibaut Courtois, who forced a move to Madrid this summer.

The Belgian keeper had just a year left on his contract, reducing his transfer value, and he failed to turn up for pre-season training at Chelsea before completing a transfer in August.

However, Hazard says he’s got a lot of respect for Chelsea and wants to avoid a repeat:

“I don’t want that. 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 say: ‘Yes, I am signing a new contract’ and then in the end I don’t end up signing. So I will see.

“Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January.”

Hazard says trophies will not be the driving factor behind any transfer decision he makes, despite Chelsea having finished sixth last season and thus failing to qualify for the current Champions League a competition Real Madrid have won three times in a row in the last years:

“It is not trophies. Of course, when you play, you want to win. But I just want to enjoy things on the pitch, like I am at the moment. Then I am happy.”

Marcos Alonso dismissed rumours of a potential return to Spain by saying he is “very happy” at Chelsea.

The left-back was linked with a potential move to former club Real Madrid in August, but he has said he never considered leaving Stamford Bridge:

“I never saw myself outside Chelsea this summer,” he said to AS.

“I am very happy there, I have three years left on my contract and my idea has always been to stay. In England, I feel very well known, not only by Chelsea fans, but also other teams.” 

The Spaniard was one of the best Chelsea men in this positive start of the season and was decisive in most of the games, scoring last minute winners both against Arsenal and Newcastle.
