Chelsea star Hazard is among 30 players in conflict to be named the current year's Ballon d'Or victor, while numerous pundits trust Croatia and Real Madrid star Luka Modric is the huge favorite. Hazard earned himself a place on the shortlist by captaining Belgium to third place in the current year's World Cup and finding the back of the net multiple times for his club last season. #Football #sports #EdenHazard #Chelsea #Beligium #Mbappe #Ballond'Or https://sportswhoop.com/eden-hazard-chelsea-ballondor/
The 27-year-old has been repeatedly linked with Real Madrid move and Los Blancos still interested in the Belgium captain.
Meanwhile, the former Lille ace has claimed that being crowned the best player in the world is not on his list of priorities.
“Even though I had a very good year, I have to keep my feet on the ground,” Hazard told RTFB.
“I do not deserve the Ballon d’Or. I think there are players who have been better than me.”
“Winning the Ballon d’Or is not a goal for me. If I win it one day, great. If I do not, it won’t be a problem.”

Asked about he thinks should win the Ballon d’Or this year, Hazard replied: “I would have said Luka Modric but he has played a little less well since August and September.”
“So, if we take into account the beginning of the season, I would say Kylian Mbappe.”
Hazard has managed to score seven times and provided four assists in 11 Premier League games this season.
Chelsea will be back in action on Saturday evening as Maurizio Sarri side will face Tottenham Hotspur in their Premier League London derby at Wembley Stadium.
