Carlo Ancelotti: Hazard is staying with Real Madrid

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has stated that Eden Hazard has no intentions to leave the club.

Hazard has struggled at the Santiago Bernabeu since his reported €100 million move from Chelsea in June 2019, due to injuries and fitness troubles.

Asked if Hazard is likely to feature at Cadiz as Ancelotti rotates ahead of the Champions League final with Liverpool on May 28, the Italian responded: "I think so. In a squad like Madrid's there are many games. 

"There will be rotations. With a more complete squad, you can rotate more and everyone can have opportunities. Being a starter in a great team is very complicated. For all, not only for those who play less.

"I think it is a locker room of a very high level. Professional, first, there are no arrogant people. Everyone is very humble and very respectful. It is a locker room that has a lot of quality character. 

"It hasn't been easy to find changing rooms like this in my career.

"The number of minutes is not important. We have the example of Rodrygo. He has not played many minutes, but they have been quality when he features."

Hazard has only made seven starts in his 17 LaLiga games and 688 minutes this season, as Madrid won the championship for the 35th time.
