Chelsea are reportedly “not an option” for Eden Hazard as he looks to stay at Real Madrid until the summer.

The Belgian winger has been linked with a return to the Premier League in the current window as his well-documented struggles at the Bernabeu continue.

Hazard has endured an injury-plagued time in Spain and has not been able to rediscover the form he showed at Stamford Bridge.

Naturally, a reunion with the Blues has been touted with Newcastle also interested in the 31-year-old under the new Saudi-led ownership.

It was claimed that Roman Abramovich was the driving force behind Chelsea’s interest as the Russian owner was keen to reunite with the former Lille man, according to El Nacional.

Should Chelsea make a move for Eden Hazard? Comment below

But Marca are reporting that Thomas Tuchel’s men are not one of the clubs who have offered Hazard an escape route as he looks set to remain with Madrid until at least the summer.

Newcastle apparently were, but the winger rejected their approach.

Spanish publication Nacional claims that the Magpies made a £33m offer plus another £8.3m in ‘variables’ to attempt to bring Hazard back to England.

The offer from Eddie Howe’s men ‘met the expectations’ of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who accepted their offer, but Hazard knocked it back

Hazard prefers to weigh up his options in the summer because he doesn’t have too many ‘proposals’ on the table this month with his high salary proving to be a stumbling block.

During the summer, Hazard was adamant he was going to fight for his place under Carlo Ancelotti and going back to England was “out of the question.”

He said on May 26: “I still have a three-year contract with Real Madrid, so going back to England is out of the question. Everyone knows that my first two years were not good, so first I want to prove myself at Real Madrid. I will do everything to do that.

“I certainly don’t see myself leaving Madrid, given the contract situation.

“I know myself and I know when I’m in shape. If that’s the case, I can give it my all for Real next season. That’s my plan.”

Hazard was also looking forward to working with his new boss Ancelotti who joined the club after leaving Everton.

Chelsea are not one of the clubs who have tabled an offer for Eden Hazard

He said at Euro 2020: “Everyone at Real Madrid knows what Ancelotti has brought to the club.

“He won the Champions League with this group and he knows a lot of the players.

“We know that he is a coach with a lot of experience. He knows the city and the fans. I think we can do great things together.

“I don’t know him personally, but from what I’ve heard of him he’s a very nice person who just wants to win, and that’s what we all want.

“We’ll have the chance to work together. It’s good news for me.”
