Former Belgium assistant manager Vital Borkelmans has urged Eden Hazard to leave Chelsea FC this summer and seek a new challenge.

The 27-year-old is widely regarded as one of European football’s top talents and he helped Chelsea FC to win the FA Cup last season by scoring the winning goal in the final.

Hazard has long been linked with a transfer away from Chelsea FC, with Real Madrid touted as a possible destination for the attacking midfielder.

That speculation has heightened once again this summer after Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table to miss out on a place in the Champions League for next term.

Now, former Belgium assistant boss Borkelmans has underlined his belief that now is the right time for Hazard to quit Chelsea FC and start a new chapter in his career.

Speaking to bwin, Borkelmans said: “I think now is the moment that Hazard has to move, which will most likely be to Spain.

“He has played a lot of years in the Premier League, but I think it’s time for him to move on.”

Hazard has won two Premier League titles since moving to Chelsea FC from French side Lille back in the summer of 2012.

The Belgian playmaker has won every trophy apart from the Champions League during his five-year stint with the west London club.

Chelsea FC will be looking to break back into the top four next season at an absolute minimum.
