The 21-year-old midfielder turned his Borussia Monchengladbach loan into a permanent move in February but says he is keen to one day move back to Stamford Bridge. Thorgan Hazard admits he dreams of returning to Chelsea in future, despite only recently sealing a permanent move to Borussia Monchengladbach.
The 21-year-old made his loan deal with the Bundesliga club permanent at the end of February, signing a deal until 2020, though Chelsea announced that they had retained a buy-back clause in the midfielder’s contract.
And Hazard – the younger brother of current Blues star Eden – admits he is desperate to return to Stamford Bridge, but has vowed to prove his worth at Borussia-Park first.
“Now I’ve signed here I’m only focused on Monchengladbach. After this, playing at Chelsea remains a goal,” he told Le Figaro. “I hope that, in a few years, I can return and play there.
“First, I want to have a big season in a major league. I’ve not done that yet. I hope that, in a few years, I can have accomplished that. But for now, I’m only focused on Monchengladbach.
“If, one day, I want to play at Chelsea again I better play well. But first, I need to help
the team achieve our goals.” Hazard has scored five goals and laid on eight assists in 30 appearances in all competitions this season.
