Chelsea star Eden Hazard has this afternoon been spotted in Marbella, posing for a photograph whilst holding a young boy’s Real Madrid jersey.
Real’s Hazard pursuit
The links between Chelsea star man Hazard and Spanish giants Real Madrid have been circulating for several years now.
Los Blancos are known to be keen admirers of Hazard’s talents, with the 28-year-old’s development into one of the finest attackers in world football having seen Chelsea reportedly forced to knock back a number of bids from the soon-to-be dethroned European champions last summer.
This summer’s transfer window, however, looks set to be a different story.
On the back of mounting suggestions over recent weeks that Real were inching towards sealing a deal for Hazard, the Belgian himself all-but confirmed his departure from Stamford Bridge on the back of his Man of the Match showing in Chelsea’s Europa League final victory over Arsenal on Wednesday night:
“I think it is a goodbye, but in football you never know.” 😢
“Now maybe it is time for a new challenge.” 👀

Hazard’s Real hint
Hazard has since headed on vacation for the summer, with the 28-year-old’s destination of choice having been the Marbella region in the South of Spain.
And photos of the Chelsea star dropping the latest hint that he is indeed set to make the move to the Bernabeu over the coming months have since surfaced online this afternoon.
As showcased below, Hazard was spotted posing for a number of photographs with fans a short time ago.
One snap which has caused quite a stir online, though, sees the Belgian international holding a child’s Real Madrid jersey, as he poses alongside the young boy’s father:
