Brother of Chelsea star Eden Hazard, Kylian, has said that the Belgian is committed to the Blues.

On the up

Eden suffered a below average season last year, with injuries and lack of form hindering a performance similar to that of the season previous.

Hazard seemed to catch some form towards the back end of last campaign, and carried that into the Euro 2016 tournament before Belgium's exit.

Hazard has been heavily linked with a move to the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, but his brother revealed that he is committed to a life in the English capital.

He told Goal "he will stay at Chelsea, he is happy at Chelsea" and "loves London", saying it will be "good for him there" and that the "facilities are great".

Kylian continued, saying "it is one of the biggest teams in the world" and Eden will be "special again for them next year".

Belgian revolution

Hazard will be joined by another Belgian at Stamford Bridge, with striker Michy Batshuayi.

The striker completed his £33.2m move last week and joins Hazard and Thibaut Courtois in the side, and Kylian believes the two attackers will link up well.

He said "Chelsea is a great team for Belgians at the minute" evidenced by "another Belgian arriving in Michy Batshuayi as well as Thibaut Courtois".

Kylian concluded that Batshuayi will "do really well at Chelsea and he can help Diego Costa" and he will "work with Eden well just as they did for Belgium". He says they "know each other now and we have talked about Michy's move" and believe he "will be really good".

Chelsea will take on Rapid Vienna at the Allianz Stadion, Vienna on Saturday, July 16 with kick-off at 5pm BST.
