Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has given the club a major boost insisting he would have ‘no problem’ remaining at Stamford Bridge for the rest of his career.
The forward is arguably in the form of his life this season and has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months.
With speculation about his future mounting, the 27-year-old has recently admitted that a move to the Bernebeu is something that he would like to happen at some point in his career.
Hazard does not seem to have let the uncertainty affect him though and he has helped fire the Blues to the top of the Premier League table, along with champions Manchester City and Liverpool.
The Belgian international is the league’s top scorer with seven goals in eight games and has looked like he is back to his best under new boss Maurizio Sarri.
Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in 2012 and has since won two Premier League titles, the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup with the club.
And he insists that he and his family are happy with life in west London and that he could remain with the Blues until he retires.
“No problem at all,” he told Sky Sports when asked about his future. “I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here.
“So if I don’t go to Spain, it is not a problem. I love the fans – I think the fans love me!
“What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that’s it.”
Hazard helped Belgium to the semi-finals of the World Cup in the summer and he was one of the star performers in the tournament.
Soon after, speculation about interest from Real intensified, especially after Cristiano Ronaldo was sold by the European champions to Juventus.
The bid never came though and after Sarri replaced Antonio Conte as manager, Hazard stayed put.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for Hazard and Chelsea, but with the team starting so well this season, another Premier League trophy could come just at the right time for both parties.
Hazard has scored 97 goals in 310 games in all competitions for Chelsea, including 76 strikes in the Premier League.
Part of Belgium’s golden generation, he has scored 27 goals in 95 games for the Red Devils.
