Eden Hazard: Happy to stay at Chelsea

Eden Hazard has “always appreciated” Zinedine Zidane and would happily play for the Real Madrid boss but feels “very well” at Chelsea.

Hazard has struggled to find his best form this season and has been linked with a summer move to Madrid, with Zidane describing the Belgian as his favourite player behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Asked about those comments, Hazard told Belgian newspaper La Gazette: “I have always appreciated Zidane.

“I know about him as a player but not so much as a coach, although he has been very successful debut at the Bernabeu. But I am still under contract at Chelsea and I feel fine.

When asked if he’d like to play under Zidane in the future, Hazard replied: “Yes, of course.

“When I was little, I watched him on TV and on the internet for hours. But, and I repeat, I feel very well at Chelsea, so this is not news.”
