Many reports suggest that Los Blancos will go after the 27-year-old in the next transfer window following the player's recent comments, during which he stated he has always dreamt of playing for Real.

When asked about Hazard's future, Sarri said: "It will be very important for us if he remains. So I think for his father, probably the Europa League is not important, but for us it is important".

"If I don't go to Spain it's not a problem".

It was put to Hazard on Belgium duty that every Ballon d'Or victor since 2008 has played in Spain, and he jokingly replied that he wants to join Madrid to put himself in position to be regarded as the world's best player. "Because, for example, Chelsea will be able to win the Champions League".

The Belgian's contract is due to expire at the end of the 2019/2020 season and talks are reportedly yet to commence on a new deal.

'I am not interested what his father says, ' said the Chelsea boss.

And his sparkling form helping Belgium finish third at the World Cup and in starting the Premier League season with seven goals in eight starts and two substitute appearances has highlighted the issue of his future. "No problem at all".

"I think in the first part of the season, David (Luiz) and Antonio (Rudiger) have played very well, so it's not easy to change". I love the fans - I think the fans love me!

"Whatever happens in the future, I will be happy".

Hazard reiterated at the start of the worldwide break that joining Madrid remains his "dream" and he wants to "make it happen", but added that he is open to discussing a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge.
