Belgium star Eden Hazard has made fresh Real Madrid claim, he insisted that the exit of Zinedine Zidane has not affected his dream to play for the European Champions.

Hazard wants a transfer out of Chelsea to join Real Madrid but the Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is keen on signing Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar and he sees the Belgian forward as an alternative if the deal does not materialize.

"I'm fine at Chelsea and, for now, nobody has presented me with an offer," "It is true that [Zidane] is special but Madrid makes everyone dream. With or without Zidane, Madrid's shirt is special.

"But I'm also doing well in blue so staying wouldn't bother me."

Tuesday's game with France represents another opportunity for Hazard to stake a claim for the Ballon d'Or but he senses that even a World Cup win won't be enough to end Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's grip on the award.

"It will be for Messi or Cristiano, it is written like that," he contemplated.

"I remember a year in which [Franck] Ribery won everything and didn't get it," Hazard told BeIN ahead of the World Cup semi-finals against France.
