Eden Hazard has indicated that he intends to remain with Chelsea for the foreseeable future.

There was some speculation that the midfielder was planning to move away from Stamford Bridge next season and was linked with Real Madrid recently, after admitting that he would consider an offer from the Spanish club.

Hazard has enjoyed an impressive season with the Premier League champions, earning a nomination for the PFA Player of the Year award, and scoring 16 Premier League goals.

The Belgian is currently nursing a broken ankle, but speaking to the Chelsea Magazine, he said that he is looking forward to another season with the London side.

"Hopefully next year it is the same, we win the league and then I win Player of the Year. Obviously winning the league is what we want most, and this award is just a bonus.

"I like this club because it's a family. I have a lot of friends and we all talk to each other.

"I've been here five years now and I'm so happy. I'm at one of the best clubs in the world, so I'm very happy to play for such a big club as this."
