– Chelsea star Eden Hazard has raised hopes he will be at the club next season
– The Belgian forward posed for pictures to promote the club’s kit for next season
– Hazard appeared set to leave Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid this summer
Chelsea star Eden Hazard has raised hopes that he will be there next season after appearing in promotional material wearing the club’s new home kit.
The Belgian has been constantly linked with a move to Real Madrid and appears to be edging closer to the exit door at Stamford Bridge.
Zinedine Zidane has returned to the managerial hot-seat at the Bernabeu and is poised to run the rule over the Madrid squad, with Hazard reportedly high on his shopping list.
Chelsea fans have now been given some cause for optimism though after a leaked image showed Hazard modelling the new home kit.
The 28-year-old can be seen in the picture alongside Cesar Azpilicueta and Ethan Ampadu as they pose in the new strip that includes print ‘inspired by Stamford Bridge’.
For the 2019-20 campaign the jersey has been completed by a darker blue print which was reportedly influenced by the Blues stadium. In addition, red features on both the back of the shirt and the blue socks while the shorts are also blue.
The Blues will be hopeful that Hazard sticks around to wear it next season but reports last week in The Sun claimed they will allow Hazard to leave for a transfer fee in the region of £100million once their season is over.
And it was also claimed that the big-spending Spanish giants have offered Hazard a weekly wage of £400,000 after tax, which equates to more than £20m per year.
Hazard has been Chelsea’s main man this season, scoring 16 goals and assisting another 13 in 35 Premier League appearances.
Chelsea will also be hoping to wear their new strip in the Champions League next season as they are currently in fourth place in the Premier League with two games remaining.
