Hazard on Hazard: Kylian doesn’t think Real Madrid is the right move for Eden

The rumours about a potential transfer to Real Madrid for Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard have been a recurring story for several weeks months years now, though the actual possibility of it happening has never grown beyond the rumor stage. It’s threatening to do so now, especially as this summer is perhaps the last and most ideal time for him to make that long-anticipated move.

But a big part of his eventual decision, especially if we take Chelsea’s role out of it, will be his family. While his wife and his children are apparently more than happy and settled in London, his father, Thierry, has been an advocate of a big money move to Real Madrid for some time (and has thus even been publicly told off by his eldest son).

Thierry does have a couple other sons, including the third oldest, Kylian, who’s been with Chelsea since last summer, thanks in large part to Eden asking Chelsea to bring him in after injuries dented his career in Hungary. Kylian has now recovered and may be looking at a loan or a transfer, but today, we’re concerned only with his social media activities.

Instagram account @bestoffootball mocked up Hazard in a Real Madrid journey and asked a simple question, “Do you think this would be the right move for Eden Hazard”?

While obviously we’d answer no, let’s see how Kylian answered.

Always rated Kylian Hazard!

While, realistically speaking, agent Kylian’s opinion may not ultimately tip the scales in favour of Chelsea (and this is just social media chatter), his answer is perhaps an indication that not all the familial advice Eden is getting is so clearly in favour of Real Madrid.
