Eden Hazard will stay at Stamford Bridge if Real Madrid don't make an approach

Eden Hazard is having a pretty sub-par season, and his play could probably be used to summarize what went wrong with Chelsea in the months prior to José Mourinho's dismissal. But Hazard is showing signs that he might be returning to form, and along with that, interest from other clubs on his services could make a comeback as well.

According to the Daily Mail, in anticipation for any forthcoming bids from the market, Hazard will only leave Chelsea if Real Madrid comes forward with an offer next summer, and is set to reject attempts from clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain. The Mail also says that Hazard heavily favours a move to Madrid to not only 'fulfill his childhood dream' of playing for Madrid, but also to be managed by one of his idols Zinedine Zidane - something that Hazard himself said he'd be interested in doing (hypothetically).

This feels like just another piece of shoddy 'rumour-mongering' thrown by the Daily Mail at Chelsea fans. While missing out on European competitions next season might hurt our chances in attracting top players to the club, it's very unlikely that our current squad will be dismantled as easily as they want us to believe.
