Chelsea star Eden Hazard has admitted that it is still his dream to play for Real Madrid one day in the future.

The Belgium forward has long been linked with a move to Madrid and with Cristiano Ronaldo seemingly moving on, the Belgium star has been touted as his replacement.

AS have claimed that the LaLiga giants have turned their attentions to Hazard, while Marca claimed Hazard was offered to Real before the Champions League final.

Now, Hazard has revealed that his sights are still firmly set on a move to the Bernabeu at some point.

“Yes, that’s why I spoke after the World Cup and I said that I think it is time to change because I played a great World Cup,” he told reporters at St Mary’s Stadium.

“I am really in the game, I am playing good football at the moment. Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie today.

“It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club. We will see. I don’t want to talk about this every day. I don’t have time, but we will talk about my future soon. I think so. It is also when you have a dream and you want to make it happen.

“It is like I have said a lot of times, if I leave I will be happy. I know if I stay, I will be happy. It is not like if I go I am happy and if I stay that I am unhappy.”
