Chelsea face a huge task this weekend against title-challengers Liverpool.

And ahead of the clash, Hazard was again asked whether his future lies with Chelsea or in Madrid.

“I’m just focused on Chelsea,” he replied when asked about his future by ESPN Brasil.

“We must play for Top 4, try to win the Europa League.

“And then for the fans, I think it’s the most important thing, it’s when they see me on the pitch, they just think my head is with Chelsea.

“So we’ll see after.”

The Belgian has always stated his desire is to win the prestigious Ballon d'Or award, something which may be hard to achieve while playing for the west London outfit.

And Hazard has some ideas as to who may win the accolade in the coming years.

“In the future, I think Neymar is quite the same age as me, Mbappe is very young,” he added.

“He can be the future Ballon D’Or for many years.
