Eden Hazard has been speaking to the press about his move to Real Madrid, and while Chelsea fans probably want to hear less about our former star now he’s a Real Madrid player, he did reveal some interesting facts about his time at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard always made it clear that playing for Real Madrid was his dream, and the fact that he never misled us was one of the reasons Chelsea fans were happy to accept his decision to go, after many years of good service.
But this morning’s article in the Daily Mirror reveals that more teams than just Los Blancos chased our Belgian star. He claims that he turned down PSG, because he wanted to stay loyal to his former team Lille, rather than out of any real loyalty to us.
It doesn’t really matter where he went in the end, but it’s interesting to piece together a little more of the story as the truth begins to emerge.
