Chelsea fans have been left fearing for the worst after Eden Hazard left them without an assurance of his future yet again.
The Belgian has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer and looks likely to join Real Madrid as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo than any other team.
However, Zinedine Zidane was a major motivation for the former Lille man in joining the Spanish giants. Now that Zidane has left his post as Real Madrid head coach, Chelsea fans were hoping that moving to Bernabeu would no longer appeal to the Belgian.
When asked about this development, Hazard said: “Does Real make me dream less without Zidane?”
“Zidane is someone special, it’s true, but I think Real is everyone’s dream.
“Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey [of Madrid] is special but the blue jersey [of Chelsea] suits me well so it does not bother me if I stay.”
The attacking midfielder has seen his stock rise after helping Belgium reach the semifinal of the ongoing World Cup and Chelsea have offered him a new contract to keep him at Stamford Bridge for a longer term.
