Eden Hazard insists he’s very happy at Chelsea and not thinking of a move to Champions League winners Real Madrid.
The Belgian, who helped fire the Blues to the Premier League title last season – his second since joining the club from Lille five years ago – has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu this summer.
However, speaking to the Belgian media in quotes translated by HLN, the winger indicated that he was eager to sit down with Chelsea to discuss a new deal.
“In football, you never know, but at the moment it’s not something that’s on my mind,” he explained, following questions over his future. “I’m a Chelsea player. I still have a contract for three years. We’ll see.
“They (Chelsea) haven’t offered me anything yet, but it could happen. We’ll see after the holidays.
“Of course I’ll listen. We all have dreams. It could be Spain, it could be staying with Chelsea. I’m good where I am now. I think I can stay at Chelsea for many years.
“But it’s not something I’m thinking about right now. We’ll see.”
Hazard was also quick to point out that the grass may not be greener on the other side, as he could end up on the bench at Madrid if he ever joined.
Such has been the fate of James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata, who struggled for playing time under Zinedine Zidane during the season. And both players are now being linked with Chelsea.
“But if I would ever join Real Madrid, I could end up on the bench too,” the 26-year-old added. “I just want the best solution for myself.”
