The 23 year old has apparently stated that any player would be interested in a move to the Spanish giants but former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho certainly won’t be happy about the Belgian being on Carlo Ancelotti’s radar and will fight tooth and nail to keep hold of the Belgian international.
Hazard has been in excellent form this term, scoring 14 goals in all competitions and is also the club’s leading assist maker, and appears to be content with life at Stamford Bridge.
Indeed with the likes of Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba struggling for form Hazard has been on hand to shoulder the goal-scoring burden, most recently netting a hat-trick against Newcastle United earlier this month.
Chelsea spent £32m to sign Hazard from Lille and the player’s value will have risen significantly since then and his burgeoning partnership with Oscar led to Mourinho being comfortable with the idea of selling Juan Mata to Man United.
Hazard’s form has helped Chelsea to top of the Premier League and is certainly not a player the Blues will be considering offers for.
