The England midfielder doesn’t want the Belgian forward to leave Chelsea, and he’s using all the methods of persuasion he can to do it.

Eden Hazard is rumored to be leaving English Premier League side Chelsea to join Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid.

He has yet to extend his contract beyond 2020, with one more season left for him to do something big with the Blues.

But teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek doesn’t give up, and he’s trying everything he can to convince him to stay. Everything.

The England midfielder has revealed that he sings to the Belgian forward.

“I’ve been singing that to his face, in the dressing room!” Loftus-Cheek told Sky Sports.

“I’m sure everyone at the club wants him to stay – players, fans, staff, management included.”

“He’s such a talent and a player who has contributed to the club massively over the last seven years, the titles he has helped the club win. Everyone has enjoyed watching him play over the past seven years,” he added.

“I’m sure the club thanked him for what he’s done and if he does decide to move on then I wish him all the best.”

Defender David Luiz also echoed Loftus-Cheek’s call.

“I want him to stay also, of course,” he said. “He’s a great player, I want him to play with the best. I think he has to decide.

“I decided for myself when I left Chelsea for PSG. It was not easy for me, but it was a decision I took at the moment because my contract was finished.”
