Chelsea admit Eden Hazard out for months after ankle surgery

Hazard has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer window with Spanish and European champions Real Madrid being the apparent front runners.

Chelsea's Belgium worldwide star Eden Hazard has fractured his ankle, the Belgian football federation confirmed late Sunday.

No timetable has been given by Chelsea or Belgium for his return, but the speculation seems to be centered around whether Hazard will be fit for the start of the season in August.

Asked if he would like to see an offer, Hazard said: "Of course, that's all".

President Donald Trump's North Korea policy of maximum pressure, adding "we will no longer fall for that old trick". He also said he thought China ultimately would see North Korea as a liability rather than an asset.

"We all dream. It could be Spain, it could be staying with Chelsea".

"Not yet, but that can happen", he said. Previously, we talked about PSG (Paris St Germain), now about Real, next year it will be a different club. We want to continue this season, now that we will also play in the Champions League.

"Working so hard during pre-season was the key for us", he added. Hazard underwent surgery for a knock that he sustained while training with the Belgian national team. "I have not met with the board to discuss a new deal [but after this week's global matches with Belgium] I want to think about football as little as possible". But Chelsea's goal is to win the Champions League as well.
