Eden Hazard does 'se queda' as transfer time has 'run out'
- Chelsea will not entertain bids for the player, claims fellow Belgian Kristof Terreur
- The player is back in London on Monday
Unless Real Madrid rustle up an extortionate offer Chelsea cannot say 'no' to, Eden Hazard will continue at Stamford Bridge where he has two more years left on his current deal. With Hazard sold right now, the Blues would only have three more days to bring in a replacement which looks unlikely for a club that spent two months haggling with Napoli over a compensation for Maurizio Sarri.
On Monday, Hazard finally returns to Cobham for training as pics may be posted by Chelsea social media accounts later in the day:

Eden Hazard is back in London and will return to training today.
No dream move for him. Chelsea are still reluctant to sell him (to Real Madrid) and have never ever been open for negotiations or talks. And time has ran out. #cfc pic.twitter.com/wo8FYufPi9
Braced for 3 days of Eden Hazard and Real Madrid links, but Chelsea have been reluctant to sell him since the first phone call from Madrid to London. Chelsea blocked everything off and when a player is too kind to force a move...— Kristof Terreur ? (@HLNinEngeland) August 6, 2018
At his Community Shield post-match press conference, Maurizio Sarri coyly hinted, with a smile on his face, that with Eden Hazard & Thibaut Courtois there is more positive news than negative. He then dwelt on Courtois's agent words stating that he didn't pay heed to them but he never spoke of Hazard nor his agent in this combative tone.
Fans are anxious to see the Belgian back, even more so after a rather blunt display in the Community Shield. Eden is believed to absorb Maurizio Sarri's ideas well even with little time left before the season starts:
Today has been a tremendous opportunity to see what Chelsea without Hazard, Kanté and Courtois would look like. It’s not pretty.— Chelsea Rumours (@ChelseaRumours) August 5, 2018
