Chelsea star Eden Hazard is being linked with a summer move to Real Madrid.

The Belgian captain is yet to sign a contract extension at Chelsea and would have just one year left on his contract at the end of the season.

Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez insists the best players have to come to Real Madrid and have encouraged Hazard to make the move to Real Madrid this summer.

“Every year there is talk whether this player is coming or another, it is normal,” Vazquez said.

“The best players have to come to Madrid and Hazard is one of them.

“I think that Pogba would be an interesting signing,” he added.

Vazquez, who came up through the youth ranks at Real Madrid, also made it clear that he has no intention of leaving Los Blancos this summer.

“We will see. Nobody knows. We will have to see,” Varquez told Radio Gaceta.

“For sure I want to stay at Real Madrid.

“I have a contract until 2021.”

Meanwhile, former Liverpool and Tottenham striker Peter Crouch has urged Chelsea to keep Eden Hazard at all costs.

“I watched Hazard dance his way around West Ham’s defenders on Monday night and, once again, he had me out of my seat. It looks amazing on TV but, believe me, to do something like he did at Stamford Bridge gets even more appreciation from those within the game,” Crouch told Daily Mail.

“The speed, the pace, the electric burst through tight spaces and the finish were just breathtaking. He is not as consistent as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of scoring goals but he really isn’t far behind when it comes to natural ability.

“Jurgen Klopp described him this week as ‘one of the world’s best’ and with a transfer ban looming there would be no way of filling that gap. The Premier League would be poorer without him but the impact on Chelsea would be huge.

“They should give him whatever he wants to keep him. Chelsea are fighting for a top-four place on the back of what Hazard has done.

“He has provided the light for their supporters in this difficult 12 months. If he goes the light for many fans will go out.”
