Eden Hazard has been open about his wish to play for Real Madridand again this week he repeated this to leave no one in any doubt that the Bernabeu would be his destination if he had a choice now.
At the last count, Hazard netted Chelsea winning goal in the 2018 FA Cup final, he claimed the Silver Ball during the summer World Cup in Russian Federation and in the 2018-19 season, he is showing he also has a knack for goal scoring.
Discussing his future, Hazard told journalists: "I don't want to say, "yes, I am signing a new contract" and then in the end I don't end up signing".
"We've said that it's not that he wants to leave Chelsea but if Madrid come in for him, that won't be an obstacle", former Madrid striker Morata said to Spanish broadcaster Cuatro. So I will see.
"The ball does not want to go in sometimes". Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is my future.
The attacking midfielder has 20 months to run on his deal with Chelsea, and, given that he turns 28 in January, should be reaching the peak of his career.
The Blues are, according to Sky Sports, hopeful they will be able to convince the Belgian to agree to a new deal and extend his stay with the London club despite talks failing a year ago as Madrid's interest emerged.
Ahead of May's FA Cup final, which Chelsea won in Antonio Conte's last match in charge, Hazard, who moved to London in July 2012, said: "I'm waiting for new players next season".
"I am playing good football at the moment". I know if I stay I will be happy. "I was very impressed by them but we expect ourselves to be able to cope with that better than we were able to show". "I want good players because I want to win next season the Premier League". Chelsea were really struggling to stay in the game - Liverpool had the edge on them.
"I am happy, and I don't need anything", he insisted.
The visitors took advantage of the profligacy, doubling the advantage with 57 minutes played after Hazard was tripped by Ings.
