Real Madrid star, Eden Hazard, has ruled out any possibility of making a return to Chelsea this summer.
Reports in Spain had earlier claimed that the Belgium international is looking to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season and his preference is to return to Chelsea.
Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in a £130 million deal in 2019, but he is now seen as a flop by many Real Madrid fans, having struggled to make an impact during his time in the Spanish capital.
The 30-year-old started only seven games in La Liga this season, while Los Blancos ended the campaign without a trophy for the first time since 2010.
Reacting to the development, Hazard said he is determined to ‘prove himself’ at Real Madrid.
“Everyone knows that my first two years were not good, so first I want to prove myself at Real Madrid. I will do everything to do that,” Hazard said at a Belgium press conference ahead of Euro 2020.
Hazard added: “I certainly don’t see myself leaving Madrid, given the contract situation.
“I know myself and I know when I am in shape. If that is the case, I can give it my all for Real next season. That is my plan.”
