Eden Hazard Announces Successful Ankle Surgery in Twitter Post

Hazard twisted his ankle during Sunday's training session and was quickly ruled out of Belgium's upcoming internationals, although the Royal Belgian Football Association (KBVB) was initially unable to provide any details on the extent of the injury.

The Premier League champions may choose to offer the 26-year-old a bumper new deal too to ward off the interest from Real.

Chelsea's Belgium global star Eden Hazard has fractured his ankle, the Belgian football federation confirmed late on Sunday. He will return as a top player: "in three months he will play again with a flawless ankle".

The English season starts in two months with Premier League champion Chelsea playing Arsenal in the Community Shield.

The Belgian playmaker scored a superb strike for the west London side during Chelsea's 3-1 win over the Gunners at Stamford Bridge back in early February. It would be great to win the Champions League.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard believes he will miss the start of the new season and expects to be sidelined for around two months, according to reports.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has said he would "listen" if Real Madrid offered him a deal, but added that he could stay with the Blues "for many years".

"We all dream. It could be Spain, it could be staying with Chelsea", he stated.

He has of late been linked with a switch to Real Madrid and it remains to be seen whether the injury could have any impact on a potential move to the Bernabeu. We want to go on with the Champions League next year. My agent knows what is going to happen and I know as well.

"But you know that, in football, there is also the will of the player". With the season now over, the title in hand and the summer upon us, Courtois is ready to sign just about whatever Chelsea put in front of him.

"I'm at one of the best clubs in the world and I think I'm gonna stay for a couple of years".

"We want to continue on this path and want to build on this in the Champions League".
