Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has revealed the names of the two international team-mates he would love the Stamford Bridge club to sign.
When asked in an interview with COPA 90 which Belgium team-mates he would most like to see join his club he said:
“Kevin De Bruyne” and “Radja Nainggolan”
Hazard was also quizzed on whether club allegiances effect international get togethers, to which he replied:
“In Belgium we have players, good players. It’s not: ‘I play for Chelsea so I don’t talk to the guy from Tottenham’ – no, we are together,”
“In football it’s like this because, if it is not like this, all the national teams are in trouble.” He said.
Unfortunately for Chelsea fans, neither of the players Hazard mentioned seem likely to be moving to Stamford Bridge any time soon.
Roma midfielder Nainggolan confirmed yesterday that he has already turned down Antonio Conte, as he is happy with his life in Rome. Whereas, De Bruyne has already played for and been sold by Chelsea, and is a key part of Pep Guardiola’s Man City side.
Despite The Blues struggling with issues on and off the pitch this season, their mercurial playmaker Hazard has been in sensational form.
The future of the 27-year-old has been the subject of much debate in recent months, with rumours circulating that he is stalling on signing a new deal with Chelsea in order to push through a move to Real Madrid.
