Hazard helped Belgium to the semi-finals of the World Cup in the summer and has scored seven Premier League goals this season, for a Chelsea side who remain unbeaten in all competitions. However, with just two years left of Hazard's Chelsea contract, Real Madrid will be looking to take advantage of that situation and try to lure him to the Spanish capital.

When asked about Real's interest last week, he said: "Real Madrid is the best club in the world".

If no contract extension is agreed by the end of this season, Chelsea could risk Hazard leaving on a free transfer the following summer so could look to cash in on him.

"It is my dream since I was a kid".

The Belgian has given another interview, this time to Sky Sports, where he admitted he is open to prolonging his stay at the Stamford Bridge club.

"No problem at all".

"If I don't go to Spain it's not a problem".

"He's not only a great footballer but I think he's a wonderful lad".

"What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that's it".

The Belgium worldwide, who was part of Roberto Martinez's latest squad, has once again emerged as a key man for Jose Mourinho, starting four of their last five Premier League games and coming on at half-time in the win over Newcastle.

"You can't deny these players and he deserves to be with the elites, he's an elite player".

Chelsea FC were 3-0 winners against Southampton in their last Premier League game before the global break after Hazard broke the deadlock on the south coast.
