Chelsea fans won't like Eden Hazard's latest comments around possible Real Madrid move

Eden Hazard scored 17 goals in all competitions last season as he rediscovered his best form to lead Chelsea to their second league title in three years.

At 26-years-old, the Belgian international is only on the cusp of reaching his prime years in the game. But will those years be spent with Chelsea?

There's no doubt the former Lille man is a superstar at Stamford Bridge and a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona is certainly not beyond him.

In fact, at various times in the past few years Hazard has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu and it seems like he would be open to the possibility.

In a recent interview with Spanish outlet Marca, Hazard once again fuelled the proverbial fires with plenty of praise for Madrid, their manager Zinedine Zidane and indeed, La Liga.

Asked whether he would ever like to play in Spain, Hazard said: "At the moment I'm good in England. I play for one of the best teams, but yes, La Liga is special. Why not? Of course, for the moment, I'll stay here."

The forward then declared that Real are currently the best team in the world, a notion three Champions League titles in four years certainly supports.

"Well, I think at this moment Real Madrid are the best team in the world. They have won everything and have good players and a great coach. Now, the Champions League is very hard to win. As in the Premier League, anyone can win it. You never know."

His admiration for Zidane is perhaps the most telling of all. Hazard wears the number 10 because of the former French superstar and Hazard is still clearly enamored with the Madrid boss.

"He has won everything both as a player and as a coach. He's a special type. Everyone knows about him as a player, when we think of football we think of Zidane because he could do anything on the pitch. Even now, off the pitch, he has achieved great things. He's magical and I'm very happy to see him on the touchline."

Would he ditch Stamford Bridge for the Bernabeu? First, he'll need to return to fitness and return to the level that made Chelsea so successful last season.
