"In 12 years I've only had one bad season - the last six months under Mourinho - and it was partly my fault", he added.

Chelsea have made an impressive start to the new season under Maurizio Sarri, with Hazard the driving force in the London club's efforts to win silverware in 2018-19. "I'd been one of the most decisive players, and then I performed less".

Eden Hazard has revealed how he wants to play for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho in the future. Those players are usually those in the Portuguese's successful sides where, as Hazard says, the relationship between manager and player is at its best.

Modric, 33, is favourite to break the Messi-Ronaldo duopoly after a year that featured another Champions League win with Real and a World Cup where he was voted best player and finished runner-up with Croatia.

Hazard will come up against his former manager when he returns to London after the global break.

Six people are dead in the storm's path, and authorities fear the toll could climb higher as search-and-rescue efforts continue. Nearby Panama City Beach experienced similar damage along with other communities along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico .

Recent reports have indicated that Hazard would be happy to stay with the Premier League side if he can not join Real Madrid - but that if Los Blancos indicate they will move for him, he will request a transfer.

Mourinho won a Premier League title and a League Cup during his second stint at Chelsea but results quickly started to dwindle in his third season with the club after they lost 9 of their first 16 Premier League matches.

If you want to, Mourinho is the best trainer you can imagine. "Then he is a friend of yours - you ask whatever you want". Want one day off, he gives you two.

Shevchenko, who knows all about what it requires to win the Ballon D'Or, having won it himself in 2004, believes that Hazard is on the right track, and may not need to leave Stamford Bridge to scoop the coveted individual honour.

Indeed, Hazard has gone as far as saying it would be a dream to play for Real Madrid, and Goal understands that those in Madrid, including some of the Champions League winners' players, have responded favourably to those statements from the Belgian.
