Belgium boss Marc Wilmots holds a private view that Eden Hazard would benefit from leaving Chelsea for Real Madrid, according to the Mirror.

The La Liga outfit are believed to be interested in a move for the 24-year-old with a big-money bid in the pipeline for next summer.

If and when that bid comes in, Hazard will have a big decision to make. Does he leave one of the best teams in the most competitive league in the world, where he earns £200,000-a-week? It seems when the time comes, Wilmots will be urging his star player to quit Stamford Bridge.

He believes Hazard's career is at risk of stalling under the sheer pressure that comes with playing in the Premier League. Both the physical and the mental demand has seen him drop from the limelight in recent weeks.

Jose Mourinho was highly critical of the winger after deciding to drop him for last weekend's game against Aston Villa. However, despite criticising his lack of contribution in defence, the Special One reinstated him for Tuesday's game against Dynamo Kiev.

But, like his team-mates, Hazard failed to impress in Ukraine and Wilmots is worried that the PFA Player of the Year is burning out. The Red Devils are hoping to win their first major tournament at Euro 2016 next summer, but the form of Hazard will be crucial.

Wilmots is unlikely to go public with his belief, but that will not stop him pushing Hazard towards the Bernabeu if the opportunity comes along.

However, Hazard may not need convincing as he already dropped a big hint that he is angling for a move to the Spanish capital. He reportedly "liked" an Instagram post referring to Real Madrid's interest earlier this week.
