Eden Hazard has laid bare his desire to join Real Madrid but he has assured the fans of the Blues that he will not force a move away from Stamford Bridge, this is according to report.
Hazard has been in blistering form since the summer when he led Belgium to a third place finish at the World Cup. He has continued to enjoy fine form, leading the goalscorers chat of the Premier League.
He has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid and the fact that he will enter the final year of his contract with Chelsea next summer means speculation over his future continue to increase.
Madrid sold Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer and Hazard has been tipped to replace the Balon D’or holder sooner.
Speaking to newsmen after Chelsea thumped Southampton in the Premier league, Hazard revealed he still dreams of lacing his boots for Madrid.
‘Real Madrid is the best club in the world,’ he said ‘I don’t want to lie, it is my dream since I was a kid. ‘We will see. I don’t want to talk about this every day. I don’t have time, but we will talk about my future soon.
‘In my head, sometimes I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January.
‘It is also when you have a dream and you want to make it happen. It is like I have said a lot of times: if I leave I will be happy, I know if I stay I will be happy.’
Hazard further revealed he will only leave Chelsea if the club approves of his departure.
‘I don’t want that [drama],” he added. ‘I want what’s good for me, but I want what’s good for the club because the club has given me everything. I don’t want to say: ‘Yes, I am signing a new contract,’ and then I don’t end up signing.
‘I could talk now [about a new contract]. If they come to me, then I will talk. I don’t want to say that I am not talking with the club or the owner. I am talking a lot with them.
‘I am happy and I don’t need anything. It is not trophies. Of course, when you play, you want to win but I just want to enjoy things on the pitch, like I am at the moment.’
