Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has urged team-mate Eden Hazard not to leave the Premier League club.
Hazard has been at Chelsea since 2012 and has been instrumental as the Blues have won a pair of Premier League titles and an FA Cup.
However, after helping Belgium to a third-place World Cup finish, Hazard hinted that he may be looking to leave Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid believed to be his preferred destination.
