Chelsea star Eden Hazard says joining Real Madrid is every player's dream

Meanwhile, Courtois is now preparing to face England this afternoon in Russian Federation as the ace could line-up for his country's World Cup third Place play-off against the Three Lions.

He said: "We don't know if the manager is leaving yet".

One Blue player who is heavily linked with a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona is Belgian winger Eden Hazard.

The Belgium worldwide had an excellent World Cup campaign after a disappointing domestic season at Stamford Bridge.

The Chelsea forward has been regularly linked with a switch to Madrid, those rumours growing in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo's shock switch to Juventus.

According to Gabriele Marcotti of ESPN, the 27-year-old will remain at Stamford Bridge; "I don't expect much to happen because Eden Hazard is right here in Russian Federation, at least for the next few days".

It might be time to discover something know my preferred destination.

Eden Hazard has become Chelsea's knight in shining armour in recent years - but these quotes from the star following his clash against England in the World Cup has thrown his future at the club in serious doubt.

Hazard is yet to commit to a new deal at Chelsea, and with his current deal expiring in 2020, Barca apparently feel they have a chance of luring him to Spain. That does not necessarily mean that I will go back to Spain, but for me they are very important.

The 27-year-old is rumoured to be a target for La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona following six years in West London, where he has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League.
