Chelsea Star drops another Real Madrid transfer hint ahead of World Cup semi-final clash

Eden Hazard has once again been flirting with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, as the Belgium winger turns one eye to his post-World Cup future.

Chelsea ‘s leading light is reportedly set on leaving the club this summer, having grown tired of instability at Stamford Bridge and anxious that the failure to secure Champions League football next season may tarnish his reputation.

Roman Abramovich is thought to be prepared to part company with his star attacker, who has helped Chelsea win every possible trophy apart from Europe’s biggest prize in his time at Stamford Bridge.

But the Blues owner will only accept the highest possible price.

The European champions are aware that bringing in the former PFA Player of the Year could cost more than the £85.3m (€100m) they spent on signing Gareth Bale from Spurs five years ago and they may have competition from Barcelona.

“I am happy at Chelsea I haven’t had an offer from anyone for now,” the winger told beIN SPORTS ahead of Belgium’s crunch clash with France on Tuesday.

“It’s true that Zidane is special but Real Madrid would be a dream for anyone,” the 27-year-old added. “With or without Zidane the Real Madrid shirt is special.

“But I’m also doing fine in Chelsea blue so staying wouldn’t be a problem for me.”

Hazard is understood to be Real Madrid’s ‘Plan B’ in the event of failing to secure the signature of Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Neymar -and they could have plenty of cash to splash and gaps to fill if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves for Juventus.

Reports suggest that his wonderful displays in Russia have not gone unnoticed at the Bernabeu as Belgium prepare for their first-ever World Cup semi-final.

Hazard himself has admitted the tournament is make-or-break if he wants to emulate some of the greats of the game including his idol Zinedine Zidane.

“If I play well at the World Cup, things will be easier,” Hazard told French newspaper L’Equipe shortly before the tournament that could change his career
