Eden Hazard has not been at his best for Chelsea this season

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has refused to rule out a move away from Chelsea with both Real Madrid and PSG reportedly being interested in securing his services.

Hazard who won the PFA Player of the year award last year has struggled for both form and fitness this season. However, he has shown some glimpses of returning to somewhere near his best form after Guus Hiddink has taken over.

Asked by Le Parisien on whether he could leave Stamford Bridge this season, he said:

"Everything is possible, it's true. But I have a contract that runs for four-and-a-half years yet.

"Even if things are difficult this year, I feel good at Chelsea. I'm in a good squad that can win trophies every season."

Asked on whether he would leave this summer, he said:

"I don't think that will happen. Anyway, every transfer window people say: 'Eden is going to leave.'

"And every time that I said that I would stay, I have actually stayed. On the other hand, I said during my last year at Lille that I was going to leave and I really did leave."

Eden Hazard says it is difficult to say no to teams who are capable of winning Champions League

Hazard has long been linked with a move to either Real Madrid or PSG and he would definitely have to consider their offers if it did come in.

"Of course, [Madrid coach] Zinedine Zidane gets you interested. He was my idol when he was a player... and he's been saying good things about me for a long time.

"In any case, I want to work with the best managers in the world. Beyond that, I don't know if Zidane is in that category yet. He's only been training Real since the start of January."

 "It's difficult to say no to PSG, like all the teams who are capable of winning the Champions League.

"PSG are part of that category now. And for me, to win the Champions League is the main aim. But for the moment I'm not dwelling on that."

Chelsea will be facing Manchester City this weekend in the FA Cup and they will be hoping that Hazard will be somewhere near his bext for this crucial encounter.
