Emerson Admits Chelsea Are Afraid of Hazard Leaving to Real Madrid

Speculation regarding Eden Hazard’s future with Chelsea has indeed taken attention since the last few seasons. Rumors of his move are increasingly blowing after the successful player delivered the Belgian national team to third place in the 2018 World Cup. At that time Hazard considered himself in need of a new challenge after six career seasons in England.
Real Madrid are called to be the leading club to get their signature, especially they have just released Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus. But until the last day of the transfer market, the Belgium player chose to stay at Stamford Bridge.
The new contract talks that have never shown any meaningful developments with Chelsea have also reinforced Hazard’s chances of leaving the Bernabeu. Not to mention El Real also decided to re-appoint Zinedine Zidane as manager. Finally, Madrid is also called having made initial contact with the player.
Hazard’s uncertain future in London made one of his teammates, Emerson Palmieri, speak up. The player brought in from AS Roma also hinted that the Blues were very worried if Hazard finally decided to join Real Madrid.
“Every day, Eden Hazard shows how important he is in the Chelsea squad. Obviously, we have many quality players in the team, but Hazard is on a different level and is also one of the best players in the world,” Emerson said reported by Sky Sports.
“Personally, I can’t see Hazard leaving Chelsea. However, in the world of football you will never know what will happen,” added the Italian.
It is quite understandable if Emerson is worried that Hazard will leave Chelsea. The player who also defended Lille is indeed an irreplaceable figure in the squad. Seven seasons in uniform for the Blues, he has appeared in 338 matches with a collection of 105 goals and 86 assists.
Closing the conversation, Emerson again expressed his desire to see Hazard stay at Stamford Bridge.
“Same with all Chelsea fans, my teammates and I also feel scared and worried if Hazard will leave, but on the other hand, I am still sure if he will survive. We really want him to stay here,” he concluded.
