Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has denied reports that he has agreed a lucrative five-year deal with Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Hazard’s Chelsea contract comes to an end after next campaign and reports emerged this week stating that he had agreed to join Real – after speaking to their head coach Zinedine Zidane.
Hazard is currently on international duty with Belgium and, when asked about the Real Madrid reports on Saturday, he smiled and said: “There’s nothing in the reports.
“I’m only focused on tomorrow’s game against Cyprus.
“That’s all I’m thinking about.”
According to reports, Chelsea rejected a bid of around £60m for Eden Hazard earlier this month.
The Belgian has turned down offers of a new deal at Chelsea – but with the possibility of a transfer ban hanging over the London club, they may be reluctant to sell the forward.
If they are unable to sign the Belgium international, Real are planning a move for West Ham’s Felipe Anderson.
Hazard was in good form for Belgium on Thursday, scoring two goals as they began their Euro 2020 qualifiers with a 3-1 defeat of Russia.
