first_img1 Ray Wilkins has urged Chelsea to keep hold of superstar Eden Hazard if the Blues have ambitions to become a giant of European football.The Belgium forward has been heavily linked with the Champions League winners since proving his talent at Stamford Bridge, and rumours have resurfaced in recent weeks following the 26-year-old’s superb season in west London.He scored 16 goals and created a further five in 36 games as the Blues won the Premier League title, and Hazard spoke out about the rumours with the newspaper HLN in his homeland.“We all have dreams. It could be Spain, it could be staying with Chelsea,” he said. “But it’s not something I’m thinking about right now. We’ll see.”“If I would ever join Real Madrid, I could end up on the bench too. I just want the best solution for myself.”“In football you never know, but at the moment it’s not something that’s on my mind. I’m a Chelsea player. I still have a contract for three years. We’ll see.”Though Hazard has no outspoken desire to leave Stamford Bridge, Chelsea could be tempted to sell him should Real offer the kind of money paid in recent years for Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.However, Wilkins has made it clear selling Hazard should not be on the cards if Chelsea want to transform from just a ‘winning club’ to a giant of European football.Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Wilkins said: “He’s got three years left – keep him for those three years and give him another one!“He lives in one of the finest cities in the planet and he’s going to be always winning trophies, because that’s the way Mr Abramovich has run Chelsea over the last few years.“They’re a winning club now, they win and they win often.“But, if they want to progress and be one of the top clubs in European football, they cannot afford to let Eden Hazard move to one of your biggest rivals.”There has been bad news for Hazard in recent days, as he broke his right ankle while on international duty and underwent surgery which means he will not return to training for three months.
