Thibaut Courtois & Eden Hazard

Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur has posted a short, but potential significant update for Chelsea fans on Thursday morning.

Two players who are constantly rumoured with Chelsea exits are Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard.

In fact, the last few days have seen a fresh set of rumours spread about Chelsea’s Belgian duo.

Courtois has spoken openly this week about returning to Spain.

Talking to Belgian outlet Sport/Foot Magazine, Courtois said:

My personal situation is related to the city of Madrid. My two children live there with their mum.

I have my daughter every day on FaceTime. She often tells me that she misses me. My son is still too small to communicate like that.

Whenever I have the opportunity, I try to return to Spain. As a situation, it is not always easy. Yes, my heart is in Madrid. It is logical and understandable.

As for Hazard, the front page of AS on Thursday links to midfielder to Real Madrid.

Chelsea contract talks

Courtois, 25, is under contract with Chelsea until 2019.

As for Hazard, he’s under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2020.

Will the Belgian stars leave Chelsea in the near future, or could they stay for longer? According to Kristof Terreur, Courtois is set to speak about a renewal with Chelsea this month, although Hazard’s next deal is still on the back-burner.
