Eden Hazard has insisted that he will not force a move away from Chelsea and if he does leave Stamford Bridge it will be on good terms.
The Belgium’s international has been stalling on signing an extension to his current contract that expires at the end of next season for over a year now and the 27-year-old has made no secret of the fact that his dream since childhood is to play for Real Madrid.
Hazard joined Chelsea from French side Lille for £32 million in 2012 and he clearly holds a lot of respect and affection for the West London club, meaning it is most likely that even if he does leave Stamford Bridge he will try and do so as amicably as possible.
“Chelsea were clear to me; I could not leave (in the summer). I accepted it,” Hazard told Telefoot. “Leaving or staying, I knew I was going to be happy. I do not regret at all.
“I will never clash with a club. If I leave Chelsea, I will leave on good terms.”
Hazard has begun this season in the form of his life netting seven goals and providing three assists in just eight Premier League games, which has inspired Chelsea to joint top of the table with pre-season favourites Manchester City and Liverpool.
