Chelsea forward Eden Hazard refuses to rule out a potential transfer to La Liga Champions Real Madrid

Posted: 9 February 2018 Time: 14:00

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard admits it's flattering to know he's highly rated by Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane and refused to rule out a possible transfer.

Hazard, 27, has been a long-term target for Los Blancos and with the Spanish side's recent struggles in their bid to retain their league title, rumours of a potential move for Hazard in the off-season have intensified.

With the Blues currently in disarray due to the uncertain future of manager Antonio Conte, the Belgium international surprisingly confirmed he is still happy at Stamford Bridge but won't rule out anything at this stage.

"In football, you never know," Hazard, who's netted 13 goals and registered nine assists in 35 games this season told Marca. "I'm happy at Chelsea and focused on them.

"I remember 10 years ago when he first spoke about me, it was incredible," he continued in reference to Zidane's praise. "He was my idol when I was a child.

"I have seen thousands of videos about him and now he is the manager of one of the best clubs in the world, so yes, it is a luxury [to hear his praise]."
