Chelsea star Hazard: I want to win Ballon d'Or

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed he would like to one day be crowned a Ballon d'Or winner.

The winger has been instrumental in helping Chelsea to their imminent Premier League title win this season.

Speaking to Sky Sports HQ, Hazard admitted: "I hope to win the Ballon d'Or one day.

"It's in my mind. If I don't, it won't be a problem. I try to make a good career - the best I can - but I think some other players deserve to win it also.

"Could I win it? If I play next season, we win the Champions League and I win the World Cup with Belgium, why not?"

Hazard also let out a hint that he doesn't have to move to Spain to win the award. The Belgian international has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent weeks.

He added: "In the last 10 years, the Ballon d'Or winners play in Spain, but it's not automatic. If a player is better in England, he will win it."
