Eden Hazard wants to stay at Real Madrid

Eden Hazard says he has no intention of leaving Real Madrid but knows his future at the club does not rest solely in his hands. 

Hazard joined Real in 2019 from Chelsea and has struggled to find a place as a starter under both Zinedine Zidane and Carlo Ancelotti.

The 31-year-old’s contract expires in June 2024, but his lack of game time may see him leave sooner. 

“The answer is clear, I don’t want to leave Madrid,” the Belgium captain said at a press conference on the eve of the World Cup. 

“Now we have to see. It’s not only up to me. So, let’s see how this World Cup goes and then we will analyse the pros and cons, what we need to do to keep playing, to keep enjoying it.

“It’s complicated because I want to play more But these things happen in sport. There is a coach who takes decisions. 

“As I have always said, when a manager wins it is complicated to question his choices. But I accept it and I try to show every day at training that I can play.”
