Cape Town - Chelsea star forward Eden Hazard has hinted he may consider leaving the Blues at the end of the season with his next destination said to be Real Madrid.

The Belgium international has continually being linked with the Spanish La Liga giants who appear to be looking for a long term successor to all-time leading goal-scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved to Juventus.

However, Hazard, who is contracted with the London-based outfit until 2020, also suggested he may end his career at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to Canal+, he said: "For now I'm staying at Chelsea. I have one year left in June. If I don't extend, it is possible. I can't see myself leaving in January. I wouldn't do that to the club, to the fans.

"Next summer it's a possibility, but it's also possible that I spend the rest of my career at Chelsea."

In addition, the 27-year-old is reportedly being monitored by Paris Saint-German in France's Ligue 1, though the player ruled out a return to France until the latter end of his playing days.

He concluded: "If I have to go back to France one day, it would be to Lille (his first professional club). But today, there is no chance that I'll come back to the French league."
