Eden Hazard refuses to rule out ‘dream’ move to Real Madrid

Star insists he is happy under Maurizio Sarri but offered no commitment to the Blues beyond next year

EDEN HAZARD has refused to rule out a ‘dream’ move to Real Madrid.

The Belgian star came close to leaving for the Spanish giants last summer after a miserable season under Antonio Conte before a sparkling World Cup.

Madrid pursued Hazard throughout the summer but balked at Chelsea’s £200million valuation of their prized asset.

Hazard, 27, insists he is happy now Maurizio Sarri is in charge – but he offered no commitment to the West Londoners beyond the next year.

Hazard scored another stunning goal against Liverpool in their 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

And before the game, he told BT Sport: “I am happy here, the new manager came in and we enjoy playing with him.

Eden Hazard says it is his ‘dream to play in Spain’

“To stay was the right decision. I have two years left on my contract – I can sign a new deal, maybe not, I don’t know.

“I’ll tell you the truth, after the World Cup I wanted to leave. It’s my dream to play in Spain. Then I spoke to the board and the manager and I said “I can stay no problem”.

Asked if he could finish his career at Chelsea, he added: “Yes, for sure. The fans love me. I like the club, I like the city, and I think my teammates love me also.

“But there is also a possibility I will move in a year or two as well. For me it’s easy to stay. If I leave or if I stay, I will be happy. This club is now part of my life.
