Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed he could consider to leave the club this summer as Real Madrid are plotting a club-record £200m move to land the Belgium international to Santiago Bernabeu.
He has told Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur: “After six wonderful years at Chelsea it might be time to discover something different.
“Certainly after this World Cup. I can decide if I want to stay or go, but Chelsea will make the final decision – if they want to let me go. You know my preferred destination.”
“We all know that I have always felt good at Chelsea, so…. I have been linked with all the big clubs in the past. Barcelona? Next week it will be Bayern. No I’m joking. You all know what my preferred destination is”.
