Fabrizio Romano Gives Update On Eden Hazard's Next Move

Hazard is currently a free agent after his contract with Real Madrid was terminated a year early at the end of the 2022/2023 season.

The former Belgium international is still enjoying his holidays but has seen various moves mooted in recent weeks. 

Hazard has been linked with clubs in Saudi Arabia, France and England, with former club Chelsea said to be one of those clubs interested in the 32-year-old.

One of the most gifted playmakers of his generation, the 32-year-old scored 110 goals in 352 matches for Chelsea in a seven-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

But Romano says all those links are wide of the mark and Hazard could even be set to retire after all.

“There’s a lot being speculated about Eden Hazard, who remains a free agent, but at the moment I’m not aware of anything concrete,” Romano told CaughtOffside.com.

“There are a lot of rumours, but nothing advanced, because at the moment Hazard is still discussing with his family and those close to him about retirement.

“Retirement for Hazard is a concrete possibility, but it’s not a final decision yet, and I think when we talk about a big decision like this for an important player like Hazard, I like to be respectful. It’s the player who has to decide and communicate, not for me or other journalists in general.

“For sure he’s considering retirement, but let’s see what he will decide, and I can say that all the rumours about Belgian clubs, or a return to Chelsea or other clubs, none of this was concrete or true.”
