Spain switch playing on Hazard's mind
Eden Hazard admits he is still interested in a move to Spain but insists he won't be leaving Chelsea in January.
The 27-year-old is currently with his Belgium teammates as they gear up to face Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League on Friday, before hosting the Netherlands in a friendly on Tuesday.
He has made an impressive start to the new season, off the back of helping the Red Devils to finish third at the World Cup, netting seven times in eight Premier League outings.
Undoubtedly he is the key figure at Stamford Bridge and he continues to be linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, having almost agreed a switch over the summer.
When asked if a departure in January could be on the cards Hazard said: "No."
However, he has refused to rule out joining Los Blancos in the future and admits he has a constant battle in his head.
He added: "Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future."
The former Lille man is regarded as one of the Premier League’s best but he has never come close to winning the top individual prize in world football - the Ballon d’Or.
The last 10 winners of the award have been based in Spain and Hazard concedes he may have to head over there to scoop the accolade.
"That's why I want to go, maybe," he added.
