Eden Hazard has hinted that would be open to a “dream” transfer to Real Madrid from Chelsea but says he is happy in London for now.

The Belgian playmaker has earned a reputation for being one of the Premier League’s top attacking players since arriving at the west London club from Lille back in 2012.

Hazard played an instrumental part in helping Chelsea win their second title in three seasons this term as he scored 16 goals in the top flight to help Antonio Conte’s men triumph.

The 26-year-old has long been touted as a potential transfer target for Real Madrid as Los Blancos look to add yet more attacking talent to their squad.

Hazard refused to rule out a move to Real Madrid in the future but appeared to indicated that he is happy at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to HetLaatsteNiews, Hazard said: “Real Madrid? We all have our dreams. I haven’t spoken to Chelsea yet. We’ll see.

“Leaving Chelsea? Never say never in football, but at the moment it’s not something that’s on my mind.”
