Chelsea supporters will have to wait a lot longer in order to find out the future of star player Eden Hazard, who has been the subject of contract renewals by the club.
The Belgian International has rejected a recent offer from Chelsea, preferring to wait on his future, pending any interest from Real Madrid, this according to respected Belgian Journalist Kristof Terreur.
Terreur confirms that Hazard is ‘waiting on deciding about a new Chelsea deal’. He reveals that Eden’s father Thierry, confirms that his son has rejected a new Chelsea contract offer, but as yet there has been no contact from Real Madrid.
Along with fellow Belgian Thibaut Courtois, Hazard is keen to take time over making any decisions on his future with Chelsea laying down offers on the table for the both of them.
While it seems Courtois could be close to signing a new deal, Hazard’s future will not be decided any time soon.
The 26-year old’s current deal runs through until 2020, so there is some time for both parties to makes their moves. But the fact that Hazard is allegedly waiting out to hear if Real Madrid are interested before he makes his mind up, may not sit well with many supporters.
There has been discontent amongst fans however, over concerns that Chelsea don’t seem to be matching the ambition of those around them by penny pinching during recent transfer windows, and some claim this could be the reason Hazard is thinking away.
Hazard is a key player in that Chelsea side and one might be concerned over any void left if he does decide to leave, and rightly so.
