Eden Hazard has refused to rule out a ‘dream’ move to Real Madrid.
The Belgian star came close to leaving for the Spanish giants last summer after a miserable season under Antonio Conte before a sparkling World Cup.
Madrid pursued Hazard throughout the summer but balked at Chelsea’s £200million valuation of their prized asset.
Hazard, 27, insists he is happy now Maurizio Sarri is in charge – but he offered no commitment to the West Londoners beyond the next year.
Hazard scored another stunning goal against Liverpool in their 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
And before the game, he told BT Sport: “I am happy here, the new manager came in and we enjoy playing with him.
“To stay was the right decision. I have two years left on my contract – I can sign a new deal, maybe not, I don’t know.
“I’ll tell you the truth, after the World Cup I wanted to leave. It’s my dream to play in Spain. Then I spoke to the board and the manager and I said “I can stay no problem”.
Asked if he could finish his career at Chelsea, he added: “Yes, for sure. The fans love me. I like the club, I like the city, and I think my teammates love me also.
“But there is also a possibility I will move in a year or two as well. For me it’s easy to stay. If I leave or if I stay, I will be happy. This club is now part of my life.”
