Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has no plans to quit Stamford Bridge anytime soon, according to the Telegraph.
The Belgian international, who has been in sensational form for the Blues throughout the course of the campaign, was recently hailed by Real Madrid reserve team coach Zinedine Zidane, however any potential move to the Bernabeu appears to be some way off.
In fact, the report claims that, according to sources close to the player, he's extremely settled at the Bridge, as he goes in search of long term success under the guidance of Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho.

Hazard, of course, recently signed a new five and a half year deal with the west London outfit, so it's seemingly unlikely the club would allow him to depart anytime soon.
It appears, though, that the Belgian ace would have been flattered by the comments of Zidane - a player he admired as a youngster.

Hailed by Zidane
At the time, Zidane hailed the Chelsea man alongside the superstar duo of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Real legend said: “There are players I keep an eye on and who I like a lot, like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, of course.
“They're fantastic players, but I like Eden Hazard a lot too. I enjoy everything he does on the pitch.
Ultimately, though, Hazard looks set to be a Chelsea player for some time to come, and will currently be hoping to lead his side to the Premier League title.
After scoring the winner against Manchester United last week, the Belgian forward will be hoping to produce the goods once again this weekend as the Blues travel to the Emirates to take on Arsenal, who currently sit in second place in England's elite division.
Hazard isn't quite yet in the same bracket as the likes of Messi and Ronaldo, but he's certainly getting better with each passing week.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho has certainly helped him in his development, and he will only continue to improve in the coming years at Stamford Bridge.
After a splendid season, the talented wide-man deserves to be named the PFA Player of the Year for this season, but there's even more to come.
