It’s not news to everyone that Real Madrid are interested in Chelsea star Eden Hazard. The Chelsea star still has three more years left on his Chelsea contract, but Chelsea are desperate to extend his current deal and keep him at the club for many more years.

With Hazard’s scintillating form this season, Real Madrid came back in the hunt for the Belgian, and the Blues aren’t willing to lose the 26-year-old, instead Chelsea want to build on this successful season by keeping key players and improving the squad in the summer.

According to the Telegraph, the Blues are desperate to keep Hazard out of the clutches of Real Madrid and insist he is ‘not for sale’ this summer.

The club’s chiefs have reportedly told Hazard that he can win any title and be the best in the world without having to go to Spain and Real Madrid.

Even the Belgian recently admitted that he doesn’t have to go to Spain to be the best player in the world.

Hazard told Sky Sports News HQ: “I hope to win the Ballon d’Or one day.

“It’s in my mind. If I don’t, it won’t be a problem. I try to make a good career – the best I can – but I think some other players deserve to win it also.

“When Ronaldo and Messi retire, maybe it will be another couple of players like Neymar, Paulo Dybala or Antoine Griezmann, who knows? We will see. It’s not something I think too much about.

“Could I win it? If I play next season, we win the Champions League and I win the World Cup with Belgium, why not?

“In the last 10 years, the Ballon d’Or winners play in Spain, but it’s not automatic. If a player is better in England, he will win it.”
