Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has suggested that he will be able to win the Ballon D’Or at Chelsea, and that he won’t have to join Real Madrid in hope of achieving that title.

Talking to Sky Sports following last night’s title triumph in a 1-0 win over West Bromwich at the Hawthorns, Hazard said that if he’ll be able to win the European Elite competiton with the Blues and the World Cup with Belgium in the summer, he might as well be crowded as the 2018 World’s Best Player.

“It’s in my mind. If I don’t, it won’t be a problem. I try to make a good career – the best I can – but I think some other players deserve to win it also.

When Ronaldo and Messi retire, maybe it will be another couple of players like Neymar, Paulo Dybala or Antoine Griezmann, who knows? We will see. It’s not something I think too much about.

If I play next season, we win the Champions League and I win the World Cup with Belgium, why not?

In the last 10 years, the Ballon d’Or winners play in Spain, but it’s not automatic. If a player is better in England, he will win it.”
