Hazard hints at Chelsea stay

Speaking to French station Telefoot, Benzema said: "He (Hazard) is a very good player".

The 26-year-old joined the London club back in 2012 for £32m and has gone on to become one of the best players in the world.

The Belgium worldwide has enjoyed a wonderful season with Antonio Conte's side, which has seen him net 14 goals in 30 league games and register a further five assists. But I am trying to focus on the present, to finish well with Chelsea this year.

The Belgian - who has netted 14 goals and registered five assists this season - has been linked with a summer transfer move to Real Madrid.

The former Lille attacker is a strong contender to be the Premier League's player of the year after regaining his best form in boss Antonio Conte's first season. We'll see after that.

Hazard has reportedly emerged as a target for Madrid as he continues to star for Premier League leaders Chelsea this season. The Belgium global has made a dramatic return to form this season to inspire Antonio Conte's side to within five wins of the Premier League title. "After that, what can I say about him? For the moment, I am here and I am good here".

"We get on really well while playing and I hope we stay together like this for a very long time". "For now, I'm here and good here".
