Eden Hazard has insisted that he is “very happy” at Chelsea FC as he deflected questions about his long-term future at the club this week.

Hazard is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s finest attacking players and he has been earning plenty of praise for his strong displays for Chelsea FC since signing for the club back in the summer of 2012.

The 27-year-old has won two Premier League titles with Chelsea FC and he was voted as the PFA player of the year in the 2014-15 campaign.

The playmaker has long been touted as a potential target for Real Madrid and there is bound to be plenty of fresh speculation about his future as the summer transfer window draws nearer.

Hazard is under contract at Chelsea FC until the summer of 2020, and the man himself has now responded directly to questions about his situation at the west London club.

Hazard told a news conference on Monday night while on international duty with Belgium: “I am going to finish the Premier League competition first and then play the World Cup and then I will leave on holiday.

“Then we will see what happens next. I do not think about it yet.

“I have another two years [on my] contract with Chelsea where I am very happy.”

Chelsea FC will return to Premier League action on Sunday when they host Tottenham Hotspur in a crunch top-four showdown at Stamford Bridge.

The west London side are fifth in the table as they bid to try and break back into the top four as quickly as possible.
