Chelsea have a fight on there hands to keep two of the clubs leading lights, Hazard and compatriot Thibaut Courtois have both been linked with moves to Madrid in 2018.
Thierry Hazard the father of Eden has now cast further doubt on his son’s future at Stamford Bridge by claiming he has already put off talks over an extension while he waits to see if the European champions will make an offer.
“Eden has refused a contract extension to possibly give effect to interest from Real Madrid, where he sees himself playing,” he tod Le Soir.
“But, at the moment, there is no contact at all.”
Hazard stated last month he would like the chance to play under Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane, but stressed he still had unfinished business with Chelsea.
“I do not know what will happen in my career in the future. However, for sure, to play under Zidane would be a dream,” he told RTL.
“I am enjoying life at Chelsea. I still have a lot of things to achieve with them. I am focused on playing for Chelsea.”
Hazard has two and a half years left on the contract he signed in February 2015.
