- Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle United are among the clubs that are interested in signing the mercurial Belgian player
Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Eden Hazard will stay at the club this summer. Hazard has been the subject of major transfer moves linking him with a return to the English Premier League.
Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in 2018 but has struggled to make an impact at Santiago Bernabeu. Constant injuries have kept him out of the squad, and he has only made 65 appearances for the club.
The sharp rise of Vinicius Junior has also curtailed Hazard’s involvement for the newly-crowned La Liga champions. Ancelotti, however, believes that Hazard is ready to stay on and fight for opportunities.

His plan is quite clear. He is staying, and he is doing so with a lot of motivation because he has had a tough time in these last years. He wants to show his quality. Hazard’s plans are quite clear. He is staying next year.
The Belgian winger has only scored six goals since making the move from Chelsea. Arsenal and new heavy hitters Newcastle United have asked about Hazard’s availability. Chelsea are also said to be considering a move to bring their former forward back to Stamford Bridge.
The Metro UK reports that Hazard, like anyone else, will be accorded a chance next season.
There are a lot of games, there is tiredness, there will be rotations even if this season there haven’t been as many. Everyone can have their chances. A starting place at a big club is difficult for everyone, not just the players who play less. I continue to be of the opinion that the quantity of minutes is not as important as the quality.
