Rumours from early last month suggested that Eden Hazard the 26-years-old Belgian forward who has been playing a pivotal role at Chlesea FC in recent seasons was heading towards extending his current contract with the club which runs until 2020.
Hazard’s father, Thierry Hazard was record on Friday saying his son is playing a waiting game with his Chelsea contract in an effort to keep the door open for a possible move to Real Madrid
“What I can reveal about Eden is that he refused a contract extension,” he told Le Soir.
“This was so that, if necessary, he could follow the interest of the Real, whom he could see himself playing for.
“But, as of right now, there is no contact from Real Madrid. Eden is only one of the parties involved in his future.”
Despite his fathers’ claims, Sky Sports News has been told that Eden Hazard has not been offered a new contract by Chelsea as it is too early to begin discussions.
