According to Marca, (h/t Metro) Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard has no intention of leaving the Spanish giants as he is willing to fight for his place under Carlo Ancelotti. He has made up his mind to stay put.

The Belgian was regarded as one of the world’s finest players when he signed for Real Madrid in June 2019. But he has looked a pale shadow of himself since the £103.5million move to Santiago Bernabeu. Injuries and a loss of form have however reared their ugly head in Spain.

Hazard has of late been linked with a move back to Stamford Bridge where he was a fan favourite during his time. In his eight years long career with the Blues, he has achieved some incredible feats. He has 110 goals in 352 games, making him one of the finest attackers to ever grace the English top flight.

European Champions Chelsea have started the season brilliantly and are sitting at the top of the table in the English Premier League. Although Hazard will surely be an excellent addition to the squad, it has to be remembered that he might not be the player who left us two years ago.

The 30-year-old is, however, determined to fight for his place at Real. He is aware of underperforming during his time with Los Blancos and now wants to prove that he is still amongst the finest players in the world.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti was however coy on Hazard’s future back in October. He refused to confirm whether the player will stay or leave in the upcoming transfer windows. While Hazard is ready to fight for his place, it remains to be seen if he will be permitted to do so.

“Never in my coaching career have I forced a player to stay when they want to leave. In my personal opinion, there is no question about that. If a player wants to leave, he will leave. There is not much doubt about this.”
