Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has claimed that the club will do everything to keep hold of Eden Hazard. The Belgian has been the best player in the Premier League this season with seven goals and three assists from eight games.

However, the 27-year-old has been linked with a move to Real Madrid (h/t Express), and he revealed that he would like to play for the Spanish giants some day.

The report adds that he has a contract until 2020. Buck was speaking to beIN Sports (h/t Express) and claimed the club wanted Hazard to stay:

“Every Chelsea fan in London and around the world loves Eden Hazard. And he’s not only a great footballer but I think he’s a wonderful lad.

“And we want him to stay and we’ll do what we have to do to entice him to stay.”

The interviewer asked Buck if Chelsea could face a similar situation to that of Thibaut Courtois’. The keeper was sold when he was on the last year of his contract. In response, the chairman said:

“Let’s see how it goes between now and the end of the season.”.

The Belgian’s performances have helped Chelsea to 2nd place in the Premier League table, and we are unbeaten in all competitions.
