Hazard has netted eight goals in all competitions this season, as the Blues sit joint top of the Premier League alongside champions Manchester City and Liverpool.

“I spoke after the World Cup and I said that I think it is time to change because I played a great World Cup,” Hazard said on the back of Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Southampton.

“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.”
