Eden Hazard may need to leave Chelsea to fulfil his potential of becoming the best player in the world, according to Leicester City boss Claude Puel.

Hazard has starred for Chelsea since moving from Lille in 2012, where he was given his debut at 16 by Puel, and is largely touted as a possible future world player of the year, and has constantly been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

But ahead of their reunion when Leicester travel to Chelsea on Saturday, Puel was unsure over Hazard's long-term future.

Puel said: “He can continue to make progress. After, I don't know if he has to stay at Chelsea or not - is that a problem?

“But I think he can continue to develop as a player. He has all the qualities to play for all the great teams in Europe, of course.

"He can make the difference, so for me he is a top player in Europe.

“The team is around Eden because he is the most important player for them. It is not possible to stop him because he cannot play in just the same position.

“He can play wide or striker or come back to take the ball. He can make always penetration and the difference, it is just important to have a good structure and organisation around him.”
