Major League Soccer: Eden Hazard has turned down an offer from Inter Miami, the Major League Soccer club owned by David Beckham. The Belgian international has been without a club since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season.
Inter Miami were hoping to lure Hazard to the United States with the promise of playing alongside Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets. However, Hazard has made it clear that he wants to stay in Europe and continue his career at the highest level.
“I’m not interested in moving to the MLS,” Hazard said in a statement. “I want to stay in Europe and play at the highest level. I’m still motivated and I believe I can achieve great things in the years to come.”
Hazard’s decision is a blow to Inter Miami, who were hoping to make a major statement by signing the former Chelsea star. However, it is understandable that Hazard would want to stay in Europe, where he has won the Premier League, the Champions League, and the Europa League.
Hazard is still only 32 years old, and he has plenty of years left at the top of his game. He will be hoping to find a new club soon and he will be sure to have plenty of options.
Why did Hazard turn down Inter Miami?
There are a few reasons why Hazard turned down Inter Miami. First, he wants to stay in Europe and continue his career at the highest level. The MLS is a growing league, but it is still not considered to be on the same level as the top European leagues.
Second, Hazard has a long-standing relationship with Chelsea and he would like to return to the club one day. He has said in the past that he would love to finish his career at Stamford Bridge.
Finally, Hazard is still motivated to win trophies. He has won the Premier League, the Champions League, and the Europa League, but he would like to add to his trophy cabinet. The MLS is not a league that is known for its winning culture, so Hazard may have felt that he would have a better chance of winning trophies in Europe.
What’s next for Hazard?
Hazard is still a free agent, so he will have plenty of options. He has been linked with a move to a number of clubs, including Newcastle United, Borussia Dortmund, and Roma.
It is too early to say where Hazard will end up, but he will be sure to have plenty of suitors. He is still a world-class player, and he will be a valuable asset to any club that signs him.
