Eden Hazard has confirmed his intention to stay at Chelsea and not join Real Madrid this season.
The Belgium international hinted he might leave Chelsea after the world cup, but only Thibaut Courtois has left the Blues for Madrid.
Spanish transfer window closes August 31, but Hazard has stated he is not leaving Chelsea this season.
“You know what I said after the World Cup. I’m happy here, I do not want to talk about that yet,” he told RMC Sport after Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2.
“Many things have been said – nonsense and everything.
“For now, I’m happy. I still have two years of contract [left] and we’ll see what happens. I will not leave [this year].
“The transfer window in England is already closed. We can sell but we cannot sign players.
“It would be a bit strange for [Chelsea] to let me go and not recruit another player.
“We could see [against Arsenal] that the fans like me a lot. I feel good here. We’ll see what happens in a year or two years.”
