Eden Hazard

Emerson believes Hazard will stay at Chelsea despite Real Madrid links

Zinedine Zidane returns to Madrid

After a poor 2018/19 season, Real Madrid are now on their 3rd manager of the campaign.

Zinedine Zidane left Madrid last summer after securing his 3rd Champions League in a row.

The Frenchman has once again returned to the Bernabeu though to help rescue Los Blancos’ season.

Zidane was presented to the media on Monday the 11th of March and was full of praise for the club.

Hazard linked with Bernabeu switch

With Zidane now back in control at Madrid, rumours are once again running wild about Eden Hazard leaving Chelsea for Spain.

The Belgian is said to be one of Zidane’s main targets in the summer.

Hazard is having perhaps his best ever season in a Chelsea shirt, scoring 13 and assisting 11 in 28 Premier League outings.

As a result, he will likely be attracting a lot of attention in the summer. Especially if Chelsea fail to secure Champions League football.

Despite this, Emerson does not believe his Chelsea teammate will leave Stamford Bridge:

“Hazard is on another level, one of the best players in the world. I personally can’t see him leave but anything is possible in football. Just like Chelsea fans – we are afraid he can leave, but I still believe he will stay and we really want him to stay”
