Eden Hazard fractures ankle in Belgium training camp

Eden Hazard is set to miss out on two international fixtures after suffering fractured right ankle in training camp, the Belgian Football Association says.

The RBFA confirmed that Hazard, 26, twisted his ankle in training, with subsequent scans revealing a fracture.

While it is not known as of yet how long the Chelsea playmaker will be out, the RBFA confirmed that he will miss Belgium international friendly against the Czech Republic and their subsequent World Cup qualifier against Estonia on 9 June.

Hazard had been influential for the Blues in the Premier League this season, scoring 16 goals in 36 games.

However, while three years remain in his contract with the club he is linked with a move to Real Madrid. The Belgian himself also admitted he would consider an approach from the Spanish Champions.

“Of course I would consider it if Madrid made an offer,” Hazard said. “I am keen to win trophies. It would be great to win the Champions League. But Chelsea’s goal is to win the Champions League as well. Honestly I do not know what will happen.”

“I only know that I still have a contract with Chelsea for three seasons and that we just had an amazing 2016-17 campaign.”

“We want to continue on this path and want to build on this in the Champions League. I am feeling very well at Chelsea. But you never know what will happen. I have not met the board yet to discuss a new deal.”
