Eden Hazard’s Position on Chelsea Return Revealed as Club Considers Next Transfer Move.
Eden Hazard’s return to Chelsea following his contract termination at Real Madrid was never a realistic option, according to reports. Hazard, who left Real Madrid after a challenging four seasons marked by injuries, had been linked with a sensational return to Stamford Bridge.
However, it has been clarified that Hazard’s return to Chelsea was never under consideration. The rumors suggesting his return were fueled by his presence at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea’s season opener against Liverpool. Still, it was never a topic of discussion, and he played no role in attracting fellow Belgian Romeo Lavia to Chelsea.
Despite being a free agent, Hazard has received offers from multiple teams, including Al-Hilal, MLS options (including Inter Miami), discussions with Lille in Ligue 1, and interest from Nice. However, his playing future remains uncertain as he must first decide whether he wants to continue his career or consider retirement.
Eden Hazard unlikely to secure Chelsea return – Fabrizio Romano
“Retirement for Hazard is a concrete possibility, but it’s not a final decision yet, and I think when we talk about a big decision like this for an important player like Hazard, I like to be respectful. It’s the player who has to decide and communicate, not for me or other journalists in general.
“For sure he’s considering retirement, but let’s see what he will decide, and I can say that all the rumours about Belgian clubs, or a return to Chelsea or other clubs, none of this was concrete or true.”
In summary, Eden Hazard’s return to Chelsea was not a realistic option, and the player is currently evaluating his future in professional football, with retirement being one possibility on the table.
