Chelsea FC released their new kits for 2018-19 and if you saw the promotional pictures, then you’ll see star forward Eden Hazard featured front and center. That’s a pretty strong signal that he’ll be a part of the Blues plans next season, whether they qualify for UEFA Champions League or not.
So much for those Eden Hazard to Real Madrid rumors– looks like that transfer will have to wait another year, at least, again; if ever at all.
The stage is lit.

Additionally, the 27-year-old Belgian has extended his contract until 2020, and was just quoted as saying: “I’m fine here and I’m happy. The public loves me, I love my colleagues and my family is here.” Yes, it’s easy to see why Hazard just laughed off the idea of moving to Manchester United during a live chat.
Hazard and the rest of the Blues take on Newcastle United tomorrow, with the final spot in the top four on the line. Unless they win, and Liverpool lose to Brighton, the Blues will be relegated to the Europa League next season, just one year after claiming the Premier League title.
