Yet, asked if playing in La Liga would boost his chances of being crowned the world’s best player, Hazard said: “Yes, that is why I want to go and play there, maybe!

“But not in January.”

Hazard’s £200,000-a-week contract runs until summer 2020 and Chelsea want him to sign a new £300k-a-week deal.

But Belgium star Hazard, 27, fancies ending their dominance.

He said: “Am I the best player in the world right now?

“Yes!  But you can always improve in football.

“Everything is going well with Chelsea and Belgium but you can always score more goals, get more assists.”
