Eden Hazard admits ‘dreaming’ for Real Madrid deal, restates Chelsea loyalty

Chelsea Star Admits He 'Dreams' of Real Madrid Move and Hints at Timescale for Negotiations

Eden Hazard insists it's 'every footballer's dream' to play for Real Madrid

And although Zinedine Zidane stepped down after the Champions League final, to be replaced by Julen Lopetegui, Hazard is still open to joining Madrid.

Les Bleus have Mbappe in their ranks, meanwhile, with the Paris Saint-Germain striker becoming his country's youngest ever World Cup scorer earlier in the tournament. With the managerial situation at Chelsea still uncertain, only time will tell if and when Hazard will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge. I just want to play the games. In modern football, we have never seen that'.

"It is true that Zidane is special but Madrid makes everyone dream".

Asked about his feelings if he could not move to Madrid, he said "The blue sweater (of Chelsea) suits me well, so it does not bother me if I stay".

'If Mbappe was watching videos of me when he was younger, now it's me watching videos of him. He sent me a message after our match against Brazil. "I've also played in France". Someone who does this at 19.

Whilst Hazard also added that the performances of the precocious Mbappé could lead to a nomination for the Ballon d'Or. The Portuguese has mainly stood out for his goals with Los Blancos, and for all of Hazard's abilities, he's not someone who routinely scores 25 goals or more per season. That's all that counts now.

Hazard inspired Belgium to book a place in semi-final spot with France on Tuesday night.
