Danny Murphy adamant Eden Hazard can become the best player in Chelsea's history
• The Belgian is in the best form of his life at the moment
• Stripped of defensive duties under Maurizio Sarri, the 27-year-old is a lethal force in front of goal
• However, Real Madrid remain hell-bent on securing Hazard's signature
Speaking on talkSPORT, ex-Liverpool man Murphy has urged the winger to ignore the La Liga lure and stay at Stamford Bridge: "The more I read about Eden Hazard, the more impressed I am.
"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."
"Chelsea made it clear this summer that I will not be allowed to leave.Either way, I was going to be happy so I don’t regret that decision at all. I want to leave Chelsea in good spirits." ?— Transfer News (@TransferChecker) October 15, 2018

"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."
