Hazard told journalists following Belgium's 2-0 win over England in the World Cup third-place playoff that "it might be time to discover something different" after six years at Stamford Bridge, adding that Real Madrid remain his "preferred destination" if he leaves Chelsea.
Madrid have admired Hazard for many years and are seeking a new Galactico this summer to fill the void created by Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Juventus, but sources told ESPN FC that Chelsea are not overly concerned by their star's words and still plan to hold talks with his representatives about a new contract in the coming weeks.
Hazard has two years left to run on his current deal, a fact that strengthens Chelsea's hand in any talks with him or Madrid. The midfielder also admitted that it will be the club's final decision whether to sell him, reinforcing Chelsea's confidence that he will not actively agitate for a transfer.
Both Belgian newspaper HLN and The Times in England reported on Monday that Chelsea value Hazard in excess of €225 million (£200m), numbers that eclipse Neymar's record €222m move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer.
