Eden Hazard may have sealed his ‘dream’ £150million move to Real Madrid earlier this summer but Chelsea still appear to have a place in his heart.
The Belgian forward left Stamford Bridge after seven trophy-laden years at the club where he became a fan favourite at the Blues.
Hazard clearly loved the club, too, but the 28-year-old couldn’t turn down the chance to play for Los Blancos.
Having made the big-money switch last month, Hazard is now preparing for life in the Spanish capital but not before he jets off to North America for the club’s pre-season tour.
Hazard was pictured arriving in Montreal with his Real team-mates but eagle-eyed fans spotted that he still has a phone case cover that has a picture his three kids wearing Chelsea shirts on it.
This prompted Chelsea fans across Twitter to insist that Hazard will ‘always be a Blue’.
Several supporters showed their support to Hazard after seeing his phone case.
One fan tweeted: ‘Hazard still loves Chelsea. He went to Real Madrid to achieve his childhood dreams. The reason we are not angry with him. We understand.’
Another said: ‘Once a blue always a blue.’
Hazard is set to feature at the International Champions Cup later this month as Zinedine Zidane’s side prepare to face Bayern Munich on July 20 in the first pre-season game.
