The Belgian has been in superb form this season and scored the winner against Crystal Palace at the start of the month to clinch a first Premier League title for the Blues since 2010.
His contributions have not gone unnoticed by his peers and football writers alike as he scooped a PFA & FWA Player of the Year awards double after scoring a total of 17 goals in 45 appearances in all competitions.
The 24-year-old also contributed nine assists in the Premier League.
Such has been his good form for the West London outfit that La Liga giants Real Madrid have been heavily linked with a move for the former LOSC Lille man, as reported by Mirror Online last month.
Despite penning a five-and-a-half year contract extension in February, speculation linking Hazard with a move away from Stamford Bridge has intensified following recent comments by club legend Zinedine Zidane.
“Obviously, there is Lionel Messi and Ronaldo, both of whom are spectacular, but I like Eden Hazard a lot too,” the World Cup-winning Frenchman began, as reported by the Mirror.
“I like everything he does on the field. I like his behaviour, his decisiveness and love to see his progress every year.
“There is still scope for further progress and if Chelsea are to win the Premier League this season, Eden will have had a lot to do with it.”
However, Hazard insists he is not leaving the newly-crowned champions of England anytime soon.
“Why change? If you’re happy and things are going really well at one place, there is no need to change,” he stressed.
“Obviously, these things don’t just depend on me but whenever you’re enjoying your football and having the chance to win trophies, it would be silly to change,” Hazard added.
