The 28-year-old Belgium global has been stalling on a new Chelsea contract for over a year now, amid speculation linking him with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

But, according to the Sun, Real are still keen on Neymar, who have been a long-term target.

For example, Goal reported in December that Hazard would wait until the end of the season to decide his future, as opposed to leaving in January.

Nobody wants to accept the reality that Eden Hazard wants to sign for Real Madrid, but that's just how it is.
