first_img 3 Danny Murphy believes Eden Hazard would be passing up the chance to become the greatest player in Chelsea’s history if he chooses to leave for Real Madrid – saying he’s already halfway there.The Belgian has openly admitted he has ‘dreamed’ of playing for the Spanish giants since he was a child, but insists he will not be leaving the Blues in January and would never force through an exit from Stamford Bridge.With his contract set to expire in 2020, it appears the 27-year-old’s future is in Chelsea’s hands.It is claimed the club are willing to make Hazard the highest-paid player in the Premier League to ensure he stays, but Real Madrid are said to be seriously interested. Eden Hazard has been on fire for club and country this season, scoring ten goals in 13 appearances so far 3 3 Murphy believes Eden Hazard could become a bigger Chelsea legend than Frank Lampard center_img “So, is he content with being one of the top players in Europe and living in London, playing for Chelsea for the rest of his career?“Because if he is, he will go down as the greatest Chelsea player ever, that’s for sure.“He’s nearly there now, and if he stays another five years… you could be talking about another 120 goals.” Hazard is an icon at Stamford Bridge and adored by Blues fans And Murphy, who is impressed by the forward’s honesty when speaking about his future, believes he has a lot to gain from staying at Stamford Bridge.If he does, the former England midfielder says there is little doubt he will go down as the club’s best ever player.“The more I read about Eden Hazard, the more impressed I am,” Murphy told talkSPORT host Jim White.“People will say if he wants to win the Ballon d’Or he has to go to Real Madrid, because it’s another step up from Chelsea.“But this is all just an assumption, because, maybe he doesn’t want to win the Ballon d’Or.“Maybe he’s alright on his £250,000-a-week, with his beautiful house in London, with his family happy and enjoying going into training every day, being Chelsea’s top goalscorer and being the biggest fish in the pond. Hazard is already Chelsea’s tenth top goalscorer in history. Another another 120 goals, as Murphy suggests, would take him above Frank Lampard as the club’s all-time top scorer.Murphy added: “Who is better than him?“Osgood, is he up there? Zola, Lampard, Drogba?”Listen to Danny Murphy’s thoughts on Eden Hazard, Chelsea and Real Madrid IN FULL above!last_img read more
