  • Chelsea-Hazard

When asked on the Premier League Show how the Italian managed to get him to stay at Chelsea, Hazard said: "He just told me that he wanted me to be one of the best players in the world.That's it". The former England global agreed that the Chelsea forward is, before adding he would have been the best player in the world right now if not for Messi's masterful performance in the Champions League for Barcelona against Spurs.

The former Barcelona man said: "That's a hard one because all the players here train at a very good level and have a good mentality to improve".

Chelsea has enjoyed a very good start and is level on points with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

"We also had surprises with players that we had no idea that they were injured and they arrived with important injuries".

Hazard's current Chelsea contract expires in June 2020 and for all his talk of wanting to play for Spanish giants Real, there has been no dip in his form for the Blues this season.

Any deal would represent a huge coup for Chelsea, who at one stage looked unlikely to be able to keep Hazard at the club past the end of the season.

The 27-year-old will be the centre of attention again when Chelsea meet Manchester United on Saturday and in an interview with Sky Sports, he talked about his immediate future.

James reached half-time with 18 points but Portland led 65-63 as the hosts were more accurate with their three-point attempts. The Showtime Lakers are back with LeBron James making a move to Los Angeles, or at least that is what Lakers fans are hoping.

"If I only think about Eden (Hazard), we are in trouble".

"I don't know what to say", he said. Meanwhile, Real Madrid are keen on adding a super signing to replace Ronaldo.

"Every Chelsea fan in London and around the world loves Eden Hazard".

"They are a very strong team".

Mourinho has tasked Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay with the responsibility of man-marking Hazard in recent times but insists that Maurizio Sarri has many other unsafe players at his disposal.

Mourinho managed Hazard at Chelsea during the Portuguese's second spell at the club, with the playmaker instrumental in the Blues' 2014-15 Premier League title triumph.
