Eden Hazard to Real Madrid: Chelsea star drops big future hint

Hazard has been one of the players of the tournament as Belgium reached the semi-finals for the first time since 1986, before losing 1-0 to France.

Chelsea FC won the Premier League title with two games to spare in the 2016-17 season but the Blues struggled to defend their crown.

Hazard now has 2 more years left on his contract at Chelsea, but according to the report, the Belgian still hasn't put pen to paper on a £300,000-per-week contract extension, thus prompting people to believe that his move to Madrid might just happen this summer. "I think they'll give it to someone who is playing in the final". We all know that I've always felt well at Chelsea, and I've been linked to all the big clubs. "You know my preferred destination".

Chelsea have never previously countenanced the possibility of a sale, and it would take a considerable bid to persuade them to alter that stance.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Conte is "disgusted" by the manner in which his departure has been handled by the club.

Chelsea and Real Madrid are reportedly in talks over a deal for Belgium number one Thibaut Courtois, The Sun quoting HLN journalist, Kristof Terreur. This meant that the West London club will not be eligible to play in Champions League football next season.

"My understanding is they would accept an offer between €100m and €130m for a player who they bought relatively cheaply when they got him a few years ago from Lille".
