Eden Hazard has dropped a major hint over his future amid reports Real Madrid are keen to bring the Belgium forward to the Bernabeu.

The 26-year-old, who netted 16 times for Chelsea last season, was a huge component in Antonio Conte's title-winning side.

His brilliant form captured the eye of Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane, who looked set to make Hazard his latest Galactico.

However, a broken ankle threw a spanner in the works, as the Belgian was forced to go under the knife, and is not expected to be back in training until September.

Real Madrid have not entirely cooled their interest in the playmaker, who could still make the move to La Liga ahead of next season.

And, according to reports, Chelsea are considering other options should Hazard opt to leave Stamford Bridge for pastures new.

The Belgian recently spoke out about the Blues' achievements last season, where he suggested he would be staying in south west London.

"Hopefully next year it is the same, we win the league and then I win Player of the Year," Hazard told Chelsea's official website.

"Obviously winning the league is what we want most, and this award is just a bonus.

"We started this season well and we won the league but next year we have to work as hard as we have this season.

"We have to be ready every year at the same level to stay at the top.

"I know if I score I can help the team win games and in the new system I've been closer to Diego, and closer to the goal.

"So it's been easier to penetrate, make assists and score goals."
