Hazard happy at Chelsea but has other ‘dreams’

Amidst continued links with Real Madrid, Eden Hazard has restated his commitment to Chelsea but admitted that he “dreams” of playing for another club.

The Blues playmaker, one of Antonio Conte's most valuable assets throughout the season, spoke with Telefoot about his personal ambitions, suggesting it may lead him away from London.

Reports from Spain claim that Los Blancos have flagged Hazard as a priority transfer target and then asked about it, the Belgian star responded with some ambiguity.

"When it's not PSG, it's Real," he said. "And then perhaps it'll be Bayern. Bizarrely, last year, there was no one!

"There are always personal ambitions to play for other clubs, dreams," continued Hazard. "But I try to focus on the present.

"As I said, I first have things to finish with Chelsea this year. Then, I'll go on holiday. We'll see after that. I have a contract until 2020. For the moment, I'm here, I'm good."

The 26-year-old, who was the subject of no small amount of criticism for his lacklustre performances under Jose Mourinho last term, may be flourishing under Conte, but has spoken candidly about his feelings about the Italian's antics during a match.

"He drives me mad sometimes on the side of the pitch," said Hazard. "The coach is always shouting, putting the players back in position.

"It's also that which has made us succeed this season. It's that we give everything during games."

Tottenham's victory over Bournemouth on Saturday reduced the gap between the first and second place to four points, where it remained, following Chelsea's disappointing loss to Manchester United on Sunday.

"You never know with this league," Hazard added. "It's different to Spain and Germany where you can feel safe with a seven-point lead and say to yourself, 'You're going to be champions'.

"If we do what we did over the last matches, we'll be champions."
