Chelsea man Eden Hazard has picked out nine current footballers - including himself - which he would fuse to make the ideal player.

Often linked to Real Madrid, the 26-year-old somehow left out Barcelona's Leo Messi but found space to include Cristiano Ronaldo.

Hazard recently returned to first team football after breaking his ankle whilst on international duty at the beginning of the summer.

He's yet to make a Premier League start this season, coming off the bench against Stoke, Arsenal and Leicester City.

The former Lille wonderkid played 90 minutes in last week's EFL Cup win over Nottingham Forest and is expected to start when Chelsea visit Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Ahead of the match, Hazard picked out the nine players he would fuse to make his ideal footballer.

Hazard picks Spurs man for free kicks

The Belgian Chelsea star would've chosen free-kick legend Juninho Pernambucano but his fused footballer had to include only active players.

“I would take the free kicks of Juninho [Pernambucano]," said Hazard to France Football, as per The Guardian. "In training, I can take them not badly, but as soon as I get to the game, I’m not focused, be it corners, free kicks... That’s why I do not get many. I shoot as if I were in my backyard, but still need some concentration. But I can not ! Or only for penalties. Juninho, I was watching his videos. Even a guy who does not know football, he knows his free kicks. They went around the world.

"Today, among those who still play, I would say Christian Eriksen of Tottenham, he shoots them too well. And Toni Kroos, too. (He whistles, once again admiring.) Besides, when Ramos scores, it’s always him who delivers the corner. Magic foot.”


The nine players Hazard included to create his ideal footballer can be seen below.

Cesc Fabregas (game vision), Christian Benteke (heading), Christian Eriksen (free kicks), John Terry (leadership), Eden Hazard (speed), Luis Suárez (finishing), Karim Benzema (off the ball movement), Cristiano Ronaldo (physicality), Andrés Iniesta (‘class’).
