A rare tweet from Eden Hazard sparked a response from Chelsea fans, many of whom urged the playmaker to stay at the club.
There are no immediate concerns that the Belgium international will depart Stamford Bridge, but he has been linked to Real Madrid.
A report from Spanish media outlet Diario Gol has claimed that the Champions League winners may turn to Hazard if they lose Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
It is believed that Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane also wants to bring in Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe and Bayern Munich defender David Alaba, as well as Hazard.
Currently, the Chelsea man is out of action as he nurses a fractured ankle, which is expected to keep him on the sidelines for the start of the season.
The 26-year-old was recently quoted by The Guardian as saying that he would “consider” an offer from the Spanish giants, but that he is satisfied with life at Chelsea.
Hazard took to social media this week, not to discuss his future, but to provide an update on his injury recovery.

Some fans used this post as an opportunity to urge the midfielder to stay at Chelsea.
Most unique and gifted player since Gianfranco Zola. Hope you stay forever. #CFC
