Belgium boss Roberto Martinez believes its difficult to imagine Chelsea selling Eden Hazard in the near future.

Hazard, 27, has had a sensational start to the season, scoring ten goals for club and country, and Real Madrid continue to be linked with the forward ahead of the January transfer window.

While Hazard has made no secret of his interest in joining the La Liga giants, he insists that he will not be on the move this winter.

The Belgium international has also made it clear that he plans to leave on good terms with Chelsea should an agreement be reached with Madrid at the end of the season.

Asked about Madrids pursuit of Hazard, Martinez told Cadena Ser: Hazard can be the leader of any club and his level is very difficult to reach for any player in the world.

Chelsea want to win titles, not sell players. Its going to be difficult to see them sell Hazard in the near future.

Hazard revealed that Chelsea blocked any potential move ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Chelsea were clear with me [in the summer]. I couldnt leave the club, he told Telefoot earlier this month.

I accepted it. Anyway… leaving or staying, I was going to be happy. I do not regret this decision at all.

When decisions are made [that you may not like] you can sulk and often you get the last word. But I will never look to clash with the club.

Chelsea have given me a lot. I left Lille on good terms and I want to do the same thing here. A transfer in January? Its not possible.
