Chelsea concern: Eden Hazard odds-on to join Real Madrid

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is odds-on to join Real Madrid, according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies have slashed the Belgian’s chances of swapping London for the Spanish capital from 6/4 to 4/6.

The 27-year-old’s comments on Madrid will have also fueled speculation over a move in the near the future.

The Chelsea forward is odds-on to become Madrid’s next Galactico, Ladbrokes’ latest betting odds show.

Also in the race for Hazard’s signature is Paris Saint-Germain, FC Barcelona and Manchester City.

PSG’s chances of prising the Belgian away are rated at 6/1, whilst Catalan Giants Barca are at 20/1 to sign the player.

Pep Guardiola’s side making a surprise swoop for the 27-year-old is at 33/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said:

“If Hazard’s latest comments haven’t given every Chelsea fan reason to worry, then these latest odds certainly will.”

Hazard has done plenty of talking over recent weeks to suggest a move to Madrid is high on his agenda.

Before Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool, Hazard admitted:

“I will tell you the truth, after the World Cup I wanted to leave because my dream is to play in Spain.”

Then, following the Blues’ 3-0 victory at St Mary’s on Sunday, he claimed:

“Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie.

“It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club. 

“Sometimes I wake up and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay.

“It is a hard decision. It is my future.”

With the Belgian speaking so openly about a potential move to Los Blancos, it is likely he would jump at the chance should an offer arise.
