Hazard's contract expires in 2020 and the Belgium international has been linked with a move to LaLiga giant Madrid.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said contract talks were happening every week, however, Hazard claimed he is waiting on the Premier League club as the 27 year-old reaffirmed his admiration for Madrid.

"There was a bit of talk [with Chelsea] but then it stopped, now we're waiting," Hazard told RMC. "You know me, I've always loved Real Madrid, even before Zidane. We'll see what happens.

"Like I said, I'm finishing this year with Chelsea. I still have a year of contract. After this year, we'll see."

Hazard has starred this season with eight goals in all competitions for Chelsea, which stunned Premier League champion Manchester City last week.

"The new coach [Sarri] thinks about football like I do, so we'll see," Hazard said. "The family is in London, I am going to be 28 years-old. I don't want to have any regrets at the end of my career.

"It is a decision I am going to make. I don't know when, but I'll take it."
