Hazard gives move update
Eden Hazard says he is still open to joining Real Madrid, but has not ruled out the possibility of staying with Chelsea.
The forward has been linked with a move to Real Madrid at various stages in his career and spoke of his desire to make a switch to the Spanish capital after last summer's World Cup.
Hazard has won the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Premier League twice during his time at Stamford Bridge but is now inside the final 18 months of his Chelsea contract.
Asked by France Football if a move to Real would please him, Hazard said: "Why not? You know it very well. You're asking the question, but you know what the answer will be so you don't have to ask it.
"I've won everything in England, apart from the Community Shield, but that doesn't mean I'm leaving. I've always said that I wanted to explore something different after England but there are also things that might make me stay.
"After the World Cup, I wanted to leave, but in the end I stayed at Chelsea and I'm playing one of the best seasons so far."
