Belgian football expert Kristof Terreur has revealed that Eden Hazard has rejected two contract offers from Chelsea because he is waiting for Real Madrid move.
The Blues have repeatedly tried to convince the Belgium international to extend his contract at Stamford Bridge but the forward has revealed the desire to leave the club.

The 28-year-old, whose current deal expires in the summer of 2020, has made it clear that he wants Madrid move.
“He has rejected two contract offers so far and says that he doesn’t want to sign right now. That means he is waiting for something and that something means just one thing, Real Madrid,” Terreur told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“Real Madrid are still interested as far as I know, but they are still yet to make their move. They don’t have a personal agreement with him at this point, they don’t have an agreement with Chelsea and they haven’t even made the phone call like they did last summer.”
“When they called last summer, Marina Granovskaia said that he wasn’t for sale and Real respected that. But they might come back in again as they need to strengthen their squad after this season and it is easier to get players with just over a year left on a contract.”
Paris Saint-Germain have also revealed an interest in the former Lille star but Terreur insists Hazard has no intention to join the French side.

“For him it is simple. It’s either staying at Chelsea or going to Real Madrid. He doesn’t think about PSG. They have always been sniffing around the table and got the same answer – he’s already played in Ligue 1 and will only ever play for Lille if he returns,” Terreur continued.
“He is currently happy in London, his kids are happy in London, his wife is happy in London and if the dream move to Real Madrid doesn’t come off, he will stay at Chelsea and sign a contract for life.”
“I think he will push for that Real Madrid move, but it is up to Real Madrid right now.”
