Hazard denies Madrid deal

Eden Hazard insists claims he’s agreed to leave Chelsea for Real Madrid are wide of the mark. ‘I don’t know where that comes from.’

Hazard has long been linked with Santiago Bernabeu and is known to be a player admired by Zinedine Zidane, but the Belgium international told a TV station in his homeland that there’s nothing to the speculation.

“I’ve signed for Madrid? No, that’s not true. I don’t know where that comes from. For now I’m at Chelsea. I have to finish the season and then I’ve got four more years. For now I’m here and all I want is to return to playing as soon as possible,” Hazard told ACTV, AS reports.
