Hazard rules out Chelsea exit

Eden Hazard is sitting tight at Chelsea and will not push for a move to Real Madrid.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the La Liga giants, who can still sign players as the transfer window in Spain is open until the end of the month.

“For the moment, I am happy,” Hazard told RMC Sport.

“I have two more years of contract and we will see what will happen.

“Leave this year? I will not leave. I’m fine here, we’ll see what happens in a year or two.”

Hazard has two years to run on the five-year contract he signed in February 2015.

After helping Belgium to third place at the World Cup with victory over England, Hazard added to the speculation by hinting of his desire to leave Stamford Bridge.

He said then: “After six wonderful years at Chelsea it might be time to discover something different. You all know my preferred destination.”

The closure of the English transfer window on August 9 means Chelsea now cannot sign any players until January.

And Hazard said: “Everybody knows what I said after the World Cup. But I’m happy here. I do not want to talk about it yet.

“A lot of things have been said, nonsense and everything.

“The transfer window in England is over. Clubs cannot sign players. It would be a little odd if they (Chelsea) sell me now while they can’t recruit a replacement.
