Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard allegedly said he would return to the club in no distant future. The comments indicate that Hazard may be lining up with the likes of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech at Stanford Bridge sooner than later.
Chelsea has been active in the transfer market after agreeing on deals for RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner and Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech.
Chelsea has been heavily linked with the Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz and recently got a boost in the race to sign the German midfielder.
There could be a chance for Chelsea's options in the attack to be strengthened with the presence of Hazard in the team. Eden Hazard admitted late last year that he could return to the club.
He was quoted as saying "When I finish here I’ll come back," Hazard told businessman and Chelsea fan Frank Khalid in December 2019.
Asked if he watches the Blues' games, Hazard responded: "Yeah, when I can I watch. Not all the time.
"They are doing good, they’re young. Now they can pay for players, they can buy players now. I do my job here and then I come back."
Hazard is regarded as one of Chelsea's greatest players of the 21st century and enjoyed a wonderful seven-year stay at Stamford Bridge after joining from Lille in 2012.
The 29-year-old's 110 goals helped the Blues to two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup and two Europa Leagues.
However, the Belgium international has already won a silverware at the Spanish capital after moving from Chelsea to Real Madrid in an £85m deal.
Should Hazard be allowed to play for Chelsea again?
