Blues superstar Eden Hazard is optimistic of a speedy recovery after being ruled out until September due to a broken ankle.
The Chelsea winger suffered a fracture during Belgium training on Monday and he had an emergency surgery.
And he went to assure his fans that he is okay and will be back soon, tweeting: “Everything went well with my ankle operation, now I start the road to recovery! I will be stronger. Thank you for your support!!”
He lifted the spirits of the Blue fans amid speculations that he might not play until September by giving a thumbs up to the camera while in hospital.
He had his right leg covered in a cast but the Belgian superstar looked happy and is hoping to recover soon.
Chelsea confirmed: “Eden Hazard successfully underwent surgery today after sustaining a fracture to his right ankle while training with the Belgian national team. He is expected to return to training in approximately three months.”
FootTheBall earlier reported that the La Liga giants Real Madrid are keen on roping in the services of Hazard in the summer. The Los Blancos are also ready to break the world transfer record to land the Belgium ace in the Spanish capital.
But his injury can now come in the way of a £100million transfer to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.
And Hazard handed the Spanish club a huge boost by not ruling out a move to the Bernabeu.
He said: “Leaving Chelsea? Never say never in football, but at the moment it’s not something that’s on my mind.”
“We all have our dreams. I haven’t spoken to Chelsea yet.”
“To be honest, I don’t know which offers will arrive. What I know is that I still have a contract for 3 years at Chelsea.”
