Amid speculation of a move to Real Madrid, Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has confirmed he has no plans to leave Stamford Bridge in January.

After a scintillating start to the Premier League season, on the back of a strong World Cup in Russia, the Belgian international is believed to have attracted strong interest from Los Blancos as they look for a Cristiano Ronaldo replacement.

Hazard has claimed he does not have any plans to leave the Blues in January but the former Lille star has admitted the lure of Real Madrid is a strong one and he does not know what they future beyond this season might hold.

He told reporters: "I am playing good football at the moment. Real Madrid are the best club in the world. I don't want to lie today.

"It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club. We will see. I don't want to talk about this every day, I don't have time. But we will talk about my future soon."

Meanwhile, Chelsea are 12/1 to win the Premier League this season, while Real Madrid are 7/2 to win the La Liga title.
