Eden Hazard has cast further doubt on his Chelsea future after admitting it would be a dream to sign for Real Madrid. The in-form Belgium forward, who has two years remaining on his existing Stamford Bridge deal, was heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu following the World Cup.
Hazard has begun the season in sensational style for the Blues but has now cast fresh doubt over his future.
“I want what’s good for me, but I want what’s good for the club because the club has given me everything,” he was quoted as saying in several national newspapers.
“I don’t want to say: ‘Yes, I am signing a new contract’ and then in the end I don’t end up signing. So I will see. Sometimes in my head, 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.”
Hazard tops the Premier League goal-scoring charts with seven after claiming the opener in the unbeaten Blues’ 3-0 win at Southampton on Sunday.
He will turn 28 in January and accepts he probably has one more big transfer before retirement, describing Real as the “best club in the world”.
“That’s why I spoke after the World Cup and I said that I think it is time to change because I played a great World Cup,” he added.
“I am really in the game, I am playing good football at the moment.
“Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club. 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. I think so.”
