Cesc Fabregas has claimed that Eden Hazard has the potential to win the Ballon d’Or following his brilliant form for Chelsea FC.

The 27-year-old is widely considered to be one of the best attacking talents in Europe and he has been in good form for Chelsea FC this season.

Hazard scored eight goals and made two assists in his first 21 Premier League appearances for Chelsea FC this season after shaking off a serious ankle injury at the start of the campaign.

The Belgian has been regularly linked with a possible future transfer to Real Madrid but he remains at Stamford Bridge for the time being.

And his Spanish team-mate Fabregas is convinced that Hazard has all of the necessary ingredients needed to win the Ballon d’Or one day.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Fabregas said: He is a player who can do one on one, he can get possession of the ball, he can pass and has great ability with the ball.

“With Eden, if he wants to win the Ballon d’Or it’s up to him.

“I’ve played football for a long time and played with top, top playe­­rs and he has all the quality, I know what he can do.”

Both Hazard and Fabregas will be hoping to help Chelsea FC navigate their way past FC Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League later this month.

The Blues have only ever won the Champions League title once, back in 2012, and they beat the Spanish giants on their way to glory that season.

Chelsea FC are aiming to try and finish in the top four this season after they won the title last term.
