Chelsea winger Eden Hazard hints that it is still his "dream" to play for Real Madrid despite the departure of Zinedine Zidane, but insists that he is content at Chelsea.

Antonio Conte has returned to take charge of Chelsea's pre-season preparations, but he is believed to be a dead man walking as the club continue to negotiate with Napoli for Sarri. "As I have said at least 100 times, I am in Chelsea and for the moment nobody has made me an offer".

Spanish media reports said the move could cost Juventus 105 million euros ($120 million), with Ronaldo signing a four-year contract worth 30 million euros per season. Subsequently, Hazard sent a number of Chelsea fans into a anxious frenzy with his statements.

According to Sport, the Belgian is top of Eric Abidal's transfer list and Barcelona's Technical Secretary has been working with discretion in a bid to being one of the star's of this year's World Cup to Camp Nou.

"Does Real make me dream less without Zidane?"

Belgium star Eden Hazard has admitted he used to support France as a youngster, just days before the two countries meet in the World Cup semi-final. It has been a exciting time for, full of success and difficulties as there is a lot of pressure to succeed at Real Madrid, but I know that I will never forget how much I have enjoyed football here.

"Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey [of Madrid] is special but the blue jersey [of Chelsea] suits me well so it does not bother me if I stay".

"The time has come to open a new stage in my life, that's why I asked the club to accept transferring me", the 33-year old said in a statement.

If Real Madrid do indeed want to sign Hazard, they will certainly have to shell out staggering sums of money to do so.

And it has been claimed Sarri has already told Roman Abramovich about the two players he does not want to see leave Chelsea this summer.
