Aston, Newcastle target Hazard: I deserve to play more at Real Madrid

Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has provided an update on his future.

The Belgian is currently preparing for the World Cup with his international teammates.

The 31-year-old is not in favour at Real under coach Carlo Ancelotti, largely due to his own injury problems. Aston Villa and Newcastle are watching developments.

Asked about his future, Hazard stated: “I don’t want to leave Real Madrid.

“Maybe my situation will change after the World Cup. I want to play, but it’s the manager who makes his choices.

“I accept, but I want to show him that I deserve to play more.

“When you don’t play, it’s difficult.”
