Eden Hazard Won't Commit To Real Madrid Until The Summer

Real Madrid have made sure to let everybody in the world know that they're willing to go all-in on Eden Hazard as their newest Galactico, but they're just not interested in waiting until the end of the season to sign him.

Even so, and despite Hazard's constant flirting with Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane, it looks like the Belgian winger is reluctant to commit with Los Blancos before the summer, according to his latest statements.

Hazard has been uncommitted with Chelsea and hasn't been precisely clear when talking about his future, but he's always respected the club and constantly claimed that he's only focused on trying to help the Blues finish the season strong.

"I'm just focused on Chelsea. One month to play, top four, try to win the Europa League. For the fans, I think the most important thing is when they see me on the pitch they just think that my head is with Chelsea. So we'll see after. Two years in a row not playing Champions League is hard for the players but also for the club. Chelsea has to play in the Champions League every year, but it's hard because we are not the only team that is trying to play Champions League. But that's why we are doing everything at the moment to try and stay in the top four," Hazard told ESPN.

With Liverpool and Manchester City locked in as the top-2 teams in the league, they'll have to go toe-to-toe with Manchester United, Tottenham, and Arsenal to qualify for next year's UEFA Champions League.

Hazard is well aware of the fact that the Blues need him focused considering the tough schedule they have ahead of them, with the team trying to make a run at this year's UEFA Europa League, while also trying to secure a top-4 spot in the English Premier League.

So, even though he'd be thrilled to join Real Madrid and play for Zinedine Zidane, it looks like Los Blancos are going to have to be patient and wait a little longer before signing him.
