Sport add that Hazard has decided he wants to quit Stamford Bridge this summer – and his ideal destination is La Liga.

Hazard has been vocal on his Chelsea future in recent weeks, with the attacker claiming a move to Real Madrid would be a dream.

“Does Real make me dream less without Zidane?” Hazard said.

“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.

“As I have said at least 100 times, I am at Chelsea and for the moment nobody has made me an offer.”

Chelsea are set for a shake-up in the coming weeks, with Antonio Conte set to be axed.

Former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is set to take over at Stamford Bridge – and bring his old midfielder Jorginho with him.
