After saying he is torn between staying at Chelsea and joining Real Madrid, Hazard suggested this week that he might need the move to win the Ballon d’Or , with the last 10 winners of the award having been based in Spain.
Former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer was asked on The Debate whether Hazard will win the award if he stayed in the Premier League.
“To win the Ballon d’Or you not only have to be the best player on the planet throughout the season but also in the most successful team,” he said.
“For Hazard to win it at Chelsea they would have to have an amazing season, which would probably mean Hazard has a phenomenal season. Is it more likely to happen at Real Madrid or Chelsea?
“He has been very honest. He has talked about his love and passion for the club and I admire his honesty. Some people will be a bit upset, but he is talking about Real Madrid. He’s not talking about a direct rival in the Premier League, it’s one of the most successful clubs in the world.”
