Eden Hazard happy at Chelsea; leaves door open for exit amid Real Madrid, PSG links
Eden Hazard has told Telefoot he is happy at Chelsea but he would be willing to move on if he ever had to.
Earlier this season, Hazard said it would be "a dream" to play for boyhood idol Zinedine Zidane, with the Madrid coach an admirer of the Chelsea star.
Hazard, 27, has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, with the Ligue 1 leaders keen to bring the ex-Lille player back to France, but the Belgium international said he was in no hurry to leave Chelsea, who face Barcelona in the Champions League this week.
"I still have two-and-a-half years on my Chelsea contract. I'm very good here," he said.
EXCLU @telefoot_TF1, @hazardeden10 s'exprime sur son avenir : "J'ai encore deux ans et demi de contrat à Chelsea, je suis très bien là. Ça fait quelques années qu'on parle du Real Madrid. Quand c'est pas le Real c'est Paris. Si jamais, je dois changer, je changerai." pic.twitter.com/9gfX3wzJwG— Téléfoot (@telefoot_TF1) February 18, 2018
"People have been talking about Real. When it's not Real, it's Paris. If ever I have to change, I'll change."
Hazard, who has scored 11 goals in 23 league appearances this season, said he believed new signing Olivier Giroud, who joined from Arsenal last month, would soon get used to Chelsea's style.
The striker teed up Hazard for a goal against West Bromwich Albion in the recent 3-0 Premier League win and also scored against Hull City in the FA Cup on Friday.
"Little by little he's going to settle into the squad, understand the way [coach Antonio] Conte wants to play," he said. "That can only be a plus for the team."
