“When I was in Lille I always said I want to go one day in England because it is my dream league, because the English league is very hard, and then one day try to move (to) Spain,” Hazard told Sky Sports ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Manchester United on Saturday.
“Now I’m almost 28, seven years with Chelsea, we won almost everything.
“So I can finish (my career) with Chelsea. No problem at all. I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here.
“So if I don’t move, if I don’t go to Spain, it is not a problem. I love the fans – I think the fans love me,” he added.
Hazard won the UEFA Europa League in his first season with Chelsea and the PFA Young Player of the Year in his second. In the 2014–15 season, he helped Chelsea win the League Cup and Premier League, earning him the FWA Footballer of the Year and the PFA Players’ Player of the Year awards.
