England and Eden Hazard

BARCELONA Barcelona set their sights on Eden Hazard- reports

This isn't the first time that Hazard has hinted at a move to Real Madrid.

While it has been reported that Chelsea are looking to recruit players of a required calibre this summer in a bid to convince him to stay, the 27-year-old's comments after Belgium's 2-0 victory over England on Saturday suggest that such measures have not worked.

"After six wonderful years at Chelsea, it might be time to discover something different".

Eden Hazard has become Chelsea's knight in shining armour in recent years - but these quotes from the star following his clash against England in the World Cup has thrown his future at the club in serious doubt.

"I think Real Madrid is everyone's dream".

That's the view of former Blues midfielder Brian Laudrup, who has said he has communicated with Hazard.

'The only thing I've always said is that after the World Cup I look at everything, ' he said following after Belgium's defeat of Japan in Russian Federation.

"Now I'm going to talk to my agent to see what the possibilities are". Next week it will be Bayern (Munich).

"You know my preferred destination", he said.

There were rumours that Hazard was chafing at the defensive burden placed on him by recently departed Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, and the Belgian praised Conte's replacement, Maurizio Sarri - though that does not seem to have changed his mind regarding a transfer.

Hazard has won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, one League Cup and one Europa League trophy with Chelsea.
