Belgium superstar denies the speculations boiling up about his transfer says he is “OK” with playing anywhere for Chelsea.
The star striker also says Belgium’s only target at this summer’s World Cup is to reach the final. With just a month left now for the world cup, Chelsea striker Eden Hazard has said he has no problem with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte playing him out of his favourite position.
In recent big games, Conte has changed things to use Hazard in a ‘false nine’ role rather than his favourite and most attacking position on the left wing. In a recent interview with Sky Sports, the Belgian has insisted that he is willing to sacrifice his favoured role for the good of the team.
“I just want to be on the pitch,” Hazard told Sky Sports News. “Number 9, 10, I can play left-back if the manager wants, no problem. I just want to be on the pitch and try to give everything like I do every time.
“I’m happy with Chelsea,” he added. “I am just thinking about the end of the season and the World Cup. I have got two years left on my contract so I am just happy.” Hazard’s next feature will be for the National side against Saudi Arabia today.

He says that his prime focus is on the world cup where he needs to perform well. “Four years ago was the first World Cup for almost all of the players in the national team,” he said. “Now we have the experience four years later so we know what to do to be ready.”
“We have one target which is to go to the final and then we will see what happens.” There have been lots of speculations on his potential move toward Real Madrid who is looking for a substitution of Karim Benzema. For now, he has denied any move towards any side.

Chelsea needs to settle things with Hazard quickly as it seems his potential is not being utilised by the blues.
