The future of Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been debated in almost every transfer window since his arrival from Lille in 2012.

The Belgian came to Stamford Bridge as one of European football's hottest young talents - and in the five and a half years he's spent with the club, he's grown into one of the best players in the world.

On his day, he's been compared to the level of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and it's believed that once those two retire, Hazard has a real chance of winning the Ballon d'Or. 

Unsurprisingly, in recent seasons, the 27-year-old has been liked with moves to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. 

And for a player like Hazard, if one of those two clubs come calling, he'd struggle to say no.

That's because if he moves to Madrid, he can become their star man and would be surrounded by other genuine world-class players, improving his chances of winning the Ballon d'Or.

Yet a move to PSG would see him undoubtedly increase his pay packet, while also featuring in the same team as Neymar, someone else chasing individual glory. 

Together, they could make the French side the best in Europe and arguably win anything in front of them.

But, it's not like Chelsea are exactly a massive step down from either of those clubs. And according to Hazard himself, he's perfectly happy in London - for now. 

"In football anything can happen. But in football nothing can happen too," he told Telefoot, per Goal, when asked about a move away from England.

"Every year they talk about Real or PSG. And when I want to change clubs, I will. But at the moment I’m good where I am. I still have two years left on my contract. I feel very good over here. 


"The fans love me, my family enjoys life over here. We will see."

The forward will likely leave Chelsea in the future, but fans will be relieved to hear he's still fully committed to the club as long as he's under contract. 

And if he wants to stake his claim as truly being one of the best on the planet, he has the perfect opportunity to do so when the Blues take on Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday.
