During his time away, Cole has seen Hazard become a hero for the Blues, and the former England international claims he doesn’t understand any reason why the Belgian would want to leave.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, talking about Hazard and his influence in the game against Liverpool, Cole said:

“He was brilliant, the way he [gets] players involved in the game and the chances he had. They have to keep him.”

“I don’t see why he’d want to leave, the club loves him, he loves the club.”

“I hope he stays and I think he will stay to be honest. I know how much he adores the club, and everyone loves him. I think he should stay.”

Real Madrid "confident" of signing Hazard this summer.
Real Madrid remain “confident” of signing both Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba this summer, according to Sky Sports‘ Kaveh Solhekol. The Chelsea superstar looks increasingly likely to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, following seven years in a Blues shirt. Hazard’s head appears to have been turned by the prospect of playing under his boyhood hero Zinedine Zidane, and the reigning European champions see the Belgian as one of their priority signings. Pogba is also very much on their radar, with the midfielder out of sorts at Manchester United and seemingly ready to push for a move.
