​Hazard stalling on Chelsea deal in hope of summer Real Madrid move

The Daily Mail has reported that Chelsea winger Eden Hazard is holding out hope of a move to Real Madrid in the summer.

Despite winning the league with Chelsea last season, Hazard is not fully satisfied at the club, especially given the recent playstyle promoted by manager Antonio Conte.

Hazard is not a fan of playing as a "false nine" striker, where he is expected to chase long balls all game. He prefers the game on the wing, with the ball coming to his feet or in front of him on the ground.

And now it appears that Hazard will check to see whether Zinedine Zidane wants to bring him to Real before he commits to a long-term deal at Chelsea.

Hazard has 15 goals and 6 assists for Chelsea in 31 starts in all competitions this season.
