Hazard stalling on new Chelsea deal

But, for me personally, it's hard to play a good game when you only touch the ball three times [an exaggeration].

As per The Times, Belgium global Hazard is apparently refusing to sign a new Chelsea contract in the hopes of attracting interest from Real Madrid.

Eden Hazard will be looking to plan an escape route from Chelsea as their Premier League campaign continues to plummet after their latest defeat to Manchester City, says Jamie Carragher. "He's the star player at Chelsea, but there has always been talk of him moving on", the former England defender said talking to Sky Sports.

'That's a pity. We could have played on for three hours and I wouldn't [have been able to] touch a ball'.

De Bruyne in action for City.

Silva cost Manchester City £43.5 last summer after an impressive season at Monaco where he won the Ligue 1 and got to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Hazard also named Harry Kane in his top three but admitted none of them surpass De Bruyne.

'He doesn't score a lot of goals but he can create something with just one movement or pass. "Him and Kevin De Bruyne are playing different positions so it depends what you want". It's simple, he's a special player.

In the interview, Hazard revealed that De Bruyne got his vote for best in the Premier League over players like Harry Kane (the league's leading scorer) and Mohammed Salah.

Hazard's Chelsea team-mate N'Golo Kante is the current holder, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer also picking up the award before.

Liverpool: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his in-form striker Mohamed Salah should be considered for player-of-the-year honours in English football after taking his goal-tally for the season to 32 by scoring in a 2-0 win over Newcastle.

"I was trying to jump, but it's not easy to win duels against Nicolas Otamendi and Aymeric Laporte", he said. "Conte put me up front, I tried to do my maximum, but I don't think we played a good match".
