Eden Hazard will not be returning to Stamford Bridge this summer, leaving Chelsea fans' hopes of being reunited with their former talisman dashed. 

Spanish outlet Marca report that the Belgium international is not interested in returning to west London, despite struggling for game time at Real Madrid. Chelsea are thought to be very interested in making a move for a player that left the club for the Spanish capital in 2019. Hazard has indicated, however, that he would prefer to see out the final year of his contract at Real, despite being a bit-part player, in a move which has been described as a humiliating snub to his former employer.
