Gladbach rule out Thorgan Hazard sale

Borussia Monchengladbach have no plans to sell midfielder Thorgan Hazard, who is a reported transfer target for Sevilla.

The Belgian international, brother of Chelsea playmaker Eden, netted 11 goals and provided nine assists in the Bundesliga this season, but the club missed out on a European spot.

“Our plan is that we don't want to give him away,” the Bundesliga club's sporting director Max Eberl is cited as saying by ESPN FC.

“We don't have any necessity to do so. That's a good feeling. I see his next step with Gladbach.”

Hazard told Belgian media outlet RTBF in May, as cited by Estadio Deportivo: “Sevilla are a great club. They are a good team who play at the top of one of Europe’s strongest leagues and compete highly in Europe almost every year, but Monchengladbach are strong too.

“Right now, I do not want to discuss my future as I still have things to do this season, then we can start to think about the next one.

“At the moment, I have a two-year deal with my club and whilst it is a shame we could not qualify for Europe, I feel good at this club and in this league.”
