Chelsea star wins Premier league player of the month

Chelsea star wins Premier league player of the month

Brazil legend, Rivaldo has identified La Liga giants, Real Madrid as the club Chelsea ace, Eden Hazard should sign for in the January transfer window.

Indeed, Los Blancos are without a win in their last four matches in all competitions, and three of those fixtures have ended in defeats.

However, the 27 year old believes Modric is better placed to win this year's Ballon d'Or for having a "wonderful" year at both club and global level.

Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the award since 2008 with five awards between them, but a Modric victory would end their decade-long domination of the prestigious honour. I could say [Madrid and France defender Raphael] Varane because he won a lot too.

"I do not think it will be me, I believe Luka Modric deserves it", he said.

"That's why I want to go, maybe", he said. "In my opinion, Modric deserves it", he told a press conference. But seriously, I think that Modric will win it.

Outside of Modric, who has already won the World Cup Golden Ball, UEFA's Best Player award, and FIFA's The Best award, Hazard admitted he was a contender alongside one other.

Neither Ronaldo or Messi were able to stamp their authority in Russian Federation last summer and that will naturally harm their chances - despite Ronaldo leading Real Madrid to the Champions League and Messi dominating domestic football in Spain.

Hazard is the leading scorer in the Premier League this season with seven goals from eight games.

Lets take a look at some of the best tweets regarding the Belgian's comments.
