Chelsea fans are getting seriously worried that Eden Hazard might head to Real Madrid next summer with the Belgian star’s contract running out at the end of the next campaign.
The 27-year-old is in the form of his career right now with seven goals to start the Premier League season and topping the goalscoring charts, which has made the rumours of a move to Real Madrid not go away.
“I can finish with Chelsea,” the winger told Sky Sports. “No problem at all. I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here.
“So If I don’t go to Spain, it is not a problem. I love the fans – I think the fans love me! What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that’s it.”
However, push will come to shove when the contract negotiations really start with the player and whether or not Hazard is willing to sign a long-term deal or make the switch to Spain.
Chelsea fans will be doing all they can to try to convince the talisman to stay at the club, and they even have a new banner prepared for the number 10 to be displayed during Saturday’s clash with Manchester United.

The banner for Hazard is set to be displayed in the Mathew Harding, with another of the Belgian reading ‘Garden of Eden’ already hanging proudly in the Shed End.
Chelsea will be doing what they can to keep their star, but it will come down to what the player is desperate to do should he keep his stunning form up this season.
