Eden Hazard has already teased a dream partnership with Havertz, Ziyech and Werner at Chelsea

Real Madrid superstar Eden Hazard has previously vowed to return to Chelsea as some fans call for his comeback.

The Belgian winger completed an £83.53m move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2019 after enjoying a hugely successful spell at Stamford Bridge after joining from Lille in 2012.

Hazard won two Premier League titles, two Europa League titles, one FA Cup and a League Cup in his seven years at Chelsea and is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the club’s history

The 29-year-old made no secret of his desire to join Zinedine Zidane’s side towards the end of his spell in west London, and is now into his second season in the Spanish capital.

But Hazard has told a Chelsea fan that he plans to one day return to Stamford Bridge.

Frank Khalid caught up with Hazard in December 2019 whilst the winger was recovering from injury.

“When I finish here I’ll come back,” Hazard said. Asked whether he has watched his old side on television Hazard replied: “Yeah, when I can I watch. Not all the time.

“They are doing well, they’re young. Now they can pay for players, they can buy players now.

“I do my job here and then I come back.”

The former Blues star won the La Liga title in his first season with Los Blancos.

And his old side benefited from that success, as the deal that took him to Real Madrid included various bonus payments for the Blues, reportedly including clauses that would be triggered if Madrid won La Liga or qualified for the Champions League.

The cash windfall was important as Frank Lampard revamped his squad during the summer transfer window.

Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, and Kai Havertz were among seven new arrivals in the first-team squad and perhaps one day they will form a partnership with Hazard.

And Hazard’s admission that he could be back in west London one day can only be music to the ears of Chelsea supporters who took to social media on Tuesday night and urged him to return.
