Three-time Chelsea player of the year Eden Hazard would “consider an offer” from Champions League winner Real Madrid.
“Of course I would consider it if Madrid made an offer,” Hazard told reporters, as quoted by Four Four Two. “I am keen to win trophies — and it would be great to win the Champions League.”
Though Chelsea won the Premier League title by a seven-point margin, the allure of big money move to Madrid remains irresistible to some big stars.
Real Madrid annihilated Juventus 4-1 to win the Champions League final on Saturday, the first time a football club has retained the title in the modern era.
Real is well-equipped to maintain its title-winning momentum in the seasons ahead as the club has experienced match-winners like Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as a blossoming talent like centre back Raphael Varane, attacking midfielder Marco Asensio, and striker Alvaro Morata.
Hazard has previously called Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane “an artist.” Spanish publication Sport claims the appreciation is reciprocated, as Zidane wants to make the 26-year-old latest galactico for €114 million (£100 million).
Hazard reportedly earns £210,000 a week at Chelsea. His deal is not due to expire until 2020 and the player seems like he is in no rush to hold talks with the board over a contract extension.
“I am feeling well at Chelsea but you never know what will happen,” Hazard said. “I have not met with the board to discuss a new deal [but after this week’s international matches with Belgium] I want to think about football as little as possible.”
