Luiz Hopes for Hazard Stay
Chelsea defender David Luiz is hopeful that Blues forward Eden Hazard will stay with the club this summer, amidst rumours of an imminent move to Real Madrid.
The Belgian looks set to go to the Bernabeu this summer and Luiz says he will respect his teammate’s choice, but hopes that he elects to stay.
“He is a great player and you always want to play with the best, but the decision is his,” Luiz told Sky Sports. “I had to take a decision when I left Chelsea for PSG.
“It was not easy for me, but it was a decision I made at the time because I thought my cycle had ended. I needed new challenges and everyone respected me. Now we have to respect his decision.
“He is a great player and friend. He arrived here (Chelsea) like a boy and, now, is one of the great players of the world. I wish him the best, but I hope he can continue with us.”
