1. His family is ‘settled’ in London
Hazard has recently admitted that his family are happy and settled in London. Hazard has three kids and a wife.
When asked where he could live in retirement, Hazard replied:
"“I don’t know, it’s hard to say. Maybe I will live in Belgium, to be close to the family, or else I could go somewhere with nice weather. “My kids are very settled in London so it could be here, that’s a long way off yet so we will see.”"
His eldest of three boys is six-years-old so his kids are young but they have also spent their whole lives essentially in London. Hazard would not want to uproot them to another country just for football reasons.
Hazard has admitted that his family comes first over football and his decision on football matters would always depend on his family. If his family are settled and happy, his kids in school then why would Hazard want to move them all just for the sake of it?
"Football is good but family, close friends, my brothers, I have family everywhere, is the most important thing,” he says. “If you told me to choose between family and football then it is no choice. I take family, of course, like everyone. But I prefer to keep it private and that’s it. I just focus on the football."
Hazard will want to keep things stable for his children and his wife and if they’re happy living in the Capital city in England then there’s no reason for him to move.
Hazard will sign a new contract and he will stay at Chelsea along with his fellow Belgian teammate Thibaut Courtois who has also recently snubbed Real Madrid interest.
