He has been on the transfer market rumours for at least two years, but Eden Hazard reveals he won’t move from Stamford Bridge at the moment as he is happy at Chelsea:
“I’m fine here. We’ll see what happens in a year or two,” he told RMC Sport.
“Leave this year? I will not leave. Everybody knows what I said after the World Cup, but I’m happy here.”
The Premier League and Football League voted to shut the transfer window before the start of the English top-flight season, which kicked off on 10 August.
However, the change did not affect most of the European clubs expect Italian ones, as the transfer window there closed last Friday, who can still sign players – including Premier League ones – until their respective deadlines later in the month:
“The transfer window in England is over. Clubs cannot sign players,” said Hazard.
“It would be a little odd if they sell me now while they can’t recruit a replacement.”
Hazard, who has won five major trophies since joining Chelsea in summer 2012, added he could see that “the fans still love me” from the reception he received during the Blues’ 3-2 win over Arsenal yesterday.
The winger still has two years to run on the five-year contract he signed with the Blues back in February 2015.
