Hazard has been enjoying a brilliant season with Chelsea, propelling the Blues towards a Europa League title and a top four finish in the Premier League. With 17 goals and 12 assists in all competitions, the Belgian superstar has proven his caliber time and again against the biggest oppositions.
Hazard will be entering the final year in his contract in the coming season and has flaunted his desire to play for Real Madrid last year.
