Hazard would like to be reunited with Jose Mourinho

Modric will win Ballon d'Or – Hazard

Hazard scored five goals in four Premier League games in September as Chelsea went unbeaten to keep up their fantastic start to the new season.

Asked about wanting to win the Ballon d'Or and whether he needed to be in Spain to do so given Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's 10-year duopoly of the award while at Barcelona and Real Madrid, Hazard smiled to reporters while on global duty: "That's why I want to go, maybe".

In a candid interview with Belgian newspaper HLN, Hazard has explained how Mourinho's second spell as Chelsea manager descended into a "negative cycle" in his third season that saw him criticising players and taking the "fun" out of training.

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

Mourinho was reportedly set to be sacked regardless of last week's result against Newcastle United but those rumours were dismissed by the United prior to their 3-2 comeback at Old Trafford.

Despite a victory over Newcastle United, Mourinho remains under pressure at United as he prepares for next weekend's trip to Hazard's Chelsea. Then he is a friend of yours - you can do whatever you want.

Novak Djokovic takes on Borna Coric in Shanghai Masters final
Coric broke Federer once in both sets and faced no break points as he made 78 per cent of his first serves. But he had fulsome praise for Djokovic , saying: "He's probably the best player in the world right now".

Hazard has admitted he is one of the best players in the world.

Belgium global Hazard, 27, has been at Chelsea since 2012 and won the Premier League under Mourinho in 2014-15 and under Antonio Conte in 2016-17.

Who do you think will win the 2018 Ballon d'Or? We will see. I don't want to talk about this every day. "We had a team to get a lot of prizes".

"If you win, Mourinho is the best coach you can imagine. I came back totally out of shape", he said.

"I felt a bit guilty because I had been the player of the year and one of the most decisive players, so I sent a message to him when he left". 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.
