It is surely not going to go away so easily, is it? The to and fro issue of the possibility of Eden Hazard going to Real Madrid or not has been with us for months now, with no end in sight. There are always new angles to the issue every other week.
The present angle is that of Hazard having signed an agreement with the Spanish giants confirming his movement to the team in the near future.
So what is the player in question saying about all these rumours?
Eden Hazard has come out to dismiss reports that he has already agreed a move to Real Madrid, insisting “there is still nothing”.
The player as we all know has been strongly linked with Madrid for months, and although he has often spoken positively about playing for Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri, he has continued to flirt with the Los Blancos.
Hazard even went as far saying that playing for Madrid was a “dream” of his last year, while reports on Saturday suggest the 28-year-old has already reached an agreement with them for a five-year contract.
Isn’t all of this confusing to the average fan?
While on international duty with Belgium, Hazard moved to quash such speculation but even then, did very little to ease the worries of Chelsea fans.
It is of note that when Hazard recognised a Madrid question was forthcoming at a news conference, he said: “No, no, I’m not here to talk about Real.”
However as the press men pressed him for an answer, he ended up replying: “There is still nothing. I’m focused on [playing against] Cyprus – that’s the only thing I’m working on now.”
Eden Hazard has had a very solid start to the season in the Premiership as he has already scored 13 goals and set up another 11 this season.
