Borussia Monchengladbach playmaker Thorgan Hazard has dismissed suggestions that Chelsea have a buy-back option to re-sign him from the German club.
Hazard was under contract at Chelsea from 2012 until 2015 but didn’t play a single competitive game for the club as he was sent out on loan to Zulte Waregem and then Monchengladbach.
The Belgian’s performances during the latter spell earned him a permanent move to the German club, and Hazard is eager to point out that Chelsea have no say in his future, despite the Blues’ claims to the contrary.
Hazard told the Express: “(I’m) not aware of a buy-back option.
“I don’t know anything about this story once published in a paper.”
Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl stated: “There is no clause. When we get a Chelsea player then Chelsea has the option, in whichever way that may be, to consider this player — but not [an] active [clause].”
In addition to being able to unlock defences with precise passes, Hazard also poses a significant threat in front of goal, as demonstrated by the fact that he has scored three goals in six Bundesliga appearances this season, while he boasts an impressive average shot accuracy of 75%.
Furthermore, in the Champions League, the no.10 star has played three times, scoring one goal. He’s also created four chances, registering one assist.
Hazard’s brother Eden is certainly enjoying an excellent campaign, with the winger having found the net on seven occasions in the Premier League for Chelsea this season.
