Chelsea star Morata reveals stopping Hazard from joining Real Madrid will be difficult

- Real Madrid have not given up on their chase for Chelsea star Eden Hazard

- He was almost joining the Galacticos this summer but his Premier League side failed to sanction the move

- His current deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit expires in June 2020 after which he will become a free agent

Chelsea star Alvaro Morata has insisted that his Premier League outfit will have issues holding on to Eden Hazard amid Real Madrid interest.

The Belgium international has been heavily linked with Los Blancos following their poor start to the season.

They have gone four games without a win in all competitions - with three out of their last four games ending in defeats for the Santiago Bernabeu side.

SunSport however reports that Hazard recently reiterated his desires to join the La Liga side and his Spaniard teammate claims there is little anyone can do to stop him.

Hazard yesterday revealed: "Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go.

"Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future."

Now Blues team-mate Morata has responded, with a worrying omen for supporters, saying: "You can play him in any position.

"And if he has said it that clearly [he wants to play for Real], then that’s the way it is.

"We’ve said that it’s not that he wants to leave Chelsea but if Madrid come in for him, that won’t be an obstacle.

"The thing is that he has a very good relationship with the club, he’s happy there and it’s not like other cases when a player wants to leave a club at any cost.

"But if it’s good for Chelsea they will keep that in mind."

Hazard's current deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit expires in the summer of 2020 when he will be allowed to walk out of the club and join any club of his choice.

Legit.ng previously reported that ex-Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas believes Chelsea will have difficulties keeping star attacker Eden Hazard at the club beyond next season.

The Russia 2018 bronze winning captain scored the winning goal that gave the Blues slim victory over fellow Premier League side Liverpool in their EFL Cup encounter at Anfield.

He was close to joining Real Madrid in the summer but the deal was not sanctioned by the Premier League side.
