Amid reports of a possible return to the Premier League, Eden Hazard has cleared the air on his future at Real Madrid.

Eden Hazard has ruled out a sensational return to the Premier League as he still hopes to prove himself at Real Madrid.

The Belgian superstar has suffered two injury-plagued seasons since his £140m move from Chelsea in 2019.

He has also struggled for form, scoring just five goals in 43 appearances for the La Liga giants to date.

Hazard is currently away with the Belgium side as they prepare for the Euro 2020 championships in which they are considered as one of the favourites to clinch the trophy.

The 30-year-old spoke about his future during a press conference with the Belgium camp on Monday. It comes after recent reports claim he could be open to a return to Chelsea.

He said as quoted by The Athletic: “I have a three-year contract with Real Madrid, going back to England is out of the question.”

“Everyone knows that my first two years were not good, so first I want to prove myself at Real Madrid.”

“Certainly, I do not see myself leaving Madrid given the situation of the contract.”

“I know myself and I know when I am in shape. If that is the case, I can give everything for Real next season. That is my plan.”

Belgium kick off their Euro 2020 championships against Russia on June 12, in a group which also consists of Denmark and Finland.

They will be hoping for a better tournament this time around after underachieving in France 2016, when they were knocked out by Wales in the quarter-finals.

Hazard added: “It is always good to be here with the group. It will be a great tournament to prepare for. I hope everyone is in shape, including me.”
