Eden Hazard has hinted that he still harbors his childhood desire to play for Real Madrid.
The Belgian has been very instrumental for Chelsea in the ongoing season under Maurizio Sarri and is currently the top scorer in the league.
Chelsea are still unbeaten this term and sit second on the Premier League log behind City on goals difference.
It can be recalled that the player had spoken about seeking another adventure in the summer after the Russia 2018 World Cup.
In a chat with newsmen, after the 3 nil win against Southampton, the Belgian reiterated his Real Madrid aspirations. Hazard said:
“I spoke after the World Cup and I said that I think it is time to change because I played a great World Cup,”
“I am really in the game, I am playing good football at the moment.
“Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club.
“We will see. I don’t want to talk about this every day. I don’t have time but we will talk about my future soon.”
Hazard’s contract at Chelsea expires in 2020 but he won’t be following the footsteps of his national teammate Thibaut Courtois who forced a move away from Stamford Bridge.
“I don’t want that,” Hazard said. “I want what’s good for me, but I want what’s good for the club because the club has given me everything.
“I don’t want to say: ‘Yes, I am signing a new contract’ and then in the end I don’t end up signing. So I will see.
“Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January.”
