Chelsea 2019/20 new home kit: Eden Hazard promotes shirt, giving fans hope he will reject Real Madrid transfer interest

Chelsea have released their new home kit for the 2019/2020 season, with Eden Hazard at the centre of the promotional pictures.

It has given some supporters hope the playmaker will snub interest from Real Madrid and remain at Stamford Bridge.

The new Nike kit is inspired by Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge home where they have played since 1905.

“Just as it is woven into our history, it is woven into the fabric of our brand new kit,” the club say.

Chelsea have a £900m deal with Nike to manufacture their kits.

Hazard is Chelsea’s top scoring player with 16 goals and said about the design: “It’s our home. Every time we step out to play in front of our fans, it just feels right.

“We’ve created so many memories at the Bridge over the years, so it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to such an iconic stadium through the jersey.”

The Blues currently occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot, two points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal with two games remaining in what has been a challenging first season for manager Maurizio Sarri.

And the top table of European football is where Hazard has vowed to take the Blues.

“Chelsea has to play in the Champions League every year,” he said.

“It’s one of biggest clubs in the world, and for myself also I want to play in the Champions League – and we will.”

Even if they miss out on a place in the top four, they could still qualify for the competition by winning the Europa League.

Chelsea face Frankfurt for a place in the final and with this vow from Hazard, plus images of him modelling their new kit, fans will have renewed hope he will still be at Stamford Bridge next season.

Though not everyone thinks it means he is staying.
