Real Madrid and Manchester United’s transfer hopes have been dealt a huge blow as Chelsea’s Eden Hazard has ruled out leaving Stamford Bridge ever.
The Premier League is now on it’s scheduled break period. This period of time allows the team to get some time away from football and pay more attention to their personal life and entertainment. With that in mind, Belgian superstars Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard made the trip to the O2 Arena to watch the Boston Celtics take on the Philadelphia 76ers.
A host of other stars from Premier League clubs also watched the high-profile match as the Celtics beat the 76ers. After the game, Hazard took some time and posed for a few pictures with fans. Which is where he gave a response to a fan that is surely going to delight Chelsea fans.

Eden Hazard will ‘never’ leave Chelsea
After the NBA’s event in London, Hazard was quoted by Daily Mirror, in which he confirms that he will be rejecting a move to the Bernabeu and signing a new deal at Chelsea.
Speaking to the Mirror, Hazard confirmed that his team-mate Thibaut Courtois will be signing a new deal, which will be followed by him signing his own new Blues contract.
Hazard said,”Yes. I think Thibaut (Courtois) first. Then I will sign.”
This news is surely going to upset Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane who has been an admirer of Hazard ever since he joined the Blues. Hazard himself was teasing a move to the Bernabeu a few months ago, however, it now looks as though he will commit to his future at Chelsea. Former Blues boss Mourinho has also been keeping a watchful eye at his future, but he will now have to look elsewhere for a new star signing.
It’s good to see Hazard commit to his future at Chelsea. Too many times Premier League stars have fallen prey to the power and influence of the La Liga giants like Barcelona and Real Madrid. If Hazard does sign a new deal, he will surely confirm his status as a Chelsea legend in the coming years.
