Eden Hazard says it would be a "dream" to play for Real Madrid as speculation over the Belgium star's Chelsea future continues.

Hazard has inspired Belgium to a place in the World Cup semi-finals, with his side taking on France in St Petersburg on Tuesday.

Madrid have long been linked with a move for the 27-year-old, while the LaLiga giants could soon need to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portugal captain is reportedly close to joining Serie A champions Juventus, freeing up a spot in Madrid's front line.

And although Zinedine Zidane stepped down after the Champions League final, to be replaced by Julen Lopetegui, Hazard is still open to joining Madrid.

"Does Real make me dream less without Zidane?" Hazard told beIN SPORTS.

"Zidane is someone special, it's true, but I think Real is everyone's dream.

"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.

"For now, it's the World Cup. As I have said at least 100 times, I am at Chelsea and for the moment nobody has made me an offer."

Chelsea name their price for Eden Hazard .
Chelsea have told potential suitors that they will not sell Eden Hazard for anything less than €200 million this summer. According to reports from Sport, as cited on Calcio Mercato, both Real Madrid and Barcelona would require the second highest transfer fee in history to land the Belgian. The deal would eclipse that of Kylian Mbappe’s move to Paris Saint-Germain, but would not be quite as much of Neymar’s mouth-watering transfer from Barcelona. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid are being linked with Hazard, who is facing an uncertain future in London. Madrid are in the market for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo following his move to Juventus. Barcelona have also been long-term admirers of the player, but the report suggests that a move is unlikely due to Chelsea’s asking price. Hazard has not ruled out staying at Chelsea but challenged the club to show ambition in the transfer market to keep him there.
