Hazard urges team-mate to leave Chelsea

Belgium winger Eden Hazard has urged his Chelsea team-mate Kevin De Bruyne to leave Stamford Bridge in January.

Hazard believes De Bruyne need to leave Chelsea in order to ensure he is ready for the World Cup in Brazil.

The 22-year-old has started only four matches for Chelsea since returning to the club from a loan spell with Bundesliga giants Werder Bremen last season.

“For sure, playing at a World Cup without having been in action for a year, I think that’s very difficult,” said Hazard.

“I think for him that leaving and playing, that would be good.

“If we want to get the best out of Kevin, I think that it’s best if he leaves.”
