Eden Hazard admits he isn’t quite on fellow Premier League star’s level

Since swapping Lille for Chelsea in 2012, Eden Hazard has gone on to establish himself as one of the best players in both the Premier League and the whole of Europe. His incredible displays with the Blues and for Belgium, however, have attracted interest from one of the biggest clubs in the world: Real Madrid.

Los Blancos have surely had their eye on the mercurial winger for a while now and could be looking to capitalise on the chaos going on at Stamford Bridge by making a summer swoop.

Sky Sports understand that Zinedine Zidane and co have already had a £60m bid for the Blues number 10 rejected, although this is unlikely to prove a big setback for a club who would happily spend nine figures on the right player.

Besides his regularly astonishing displays, the interest from Real is the biggest indicator that Hazard has reached world-class status, although the 98-cap international feels he’s got one man to beat in order to be the best player in England.

Speaking to NBC Sports (via The Mirror) the 28-year-old said:

“Mo Salah is one of my good friends and he’s doing something incredible. I try to look at this player and this player and try to reach that level.”

Indeed, the Liverpool man has been nothing short of sensational since he arrived on Merseyside but Hazard has been bossing it for years now – is the 13-goal ace just being modest here or is he right? Let us know in the comments below!
