Chelsea attacking midfielder, Eden Hazard, has described the Blues midfielder, Callum Hudson-Odoi as the future of Chelsea.
The Belgium captain is expected to make a move away from Stamford Bridge during the transfer window.
Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane upon his return to the club has shown interest in signing the playmaker to his team.
While speaking on Hudson-Odoi’s future at the club Hazard stated that he hopes that Chelsea can keep him for years to come.
Recall that the La Liga side contacted Chelsea last month over their interest in Hazard upon Zidane’s return.
Hazard while speaking with Sky Sports said; “He’s the future of Chelsea.”
“I’ve told him already. He’s still young but when you see him he looks like he’s played 10 years.”
“He’s a great guy to work with, he’s been fantastic. He wants to learn and he’s young so I hope Chelsea can keep him for a long time.”
“He’s got quality, sometimes I understand it’s hard to get young players in the team because we have people like me, Willian, Pedro.”
“But when he has the chance to play they have to show they’re ready and Callum is showing that right now.”
