Thorgan Hazard, younger brother of Chelsea star Eden, has indicated he would be open to returning to Belgium next season.
After signing his brother for £32million early last summer, the Blues also opted to bring 20-year-old Thorgan to the club, immediately sending him out on loan to Belgian outfit SV Zulte Waregem to gain first team experience.
The younger of the Hazard brothers has enjoyed an outstanding season in Belgium's Jupiler Pro League, playing an instrumental role in a Zulte side that finished second, earning the club the opportunity to qualify for the Champions League next campaign.
Zulte are keen to hold on to the starlet from another campaign, but Hazard's remarkable rise has caught the attention of Anderlecht, who's title winning season earned them automatic qualification for Europe's biggest competition next season.
Hazard has indicated that the possibility of missing out on Champions League football should Zulte fail to advance through the preliminary rounds of the competition is a major concern, which suggests a move to a side that have their spot in the group stages guaranteed could be difficult to turn down.
Ahead his return to Chelsea, the attacking midfielder told the Belgian press, "For Chelsea, I do not feel ready. I want to play in the Champions League; that is the dream. But with Zulte Waregram not in the main draw, it is far from being simple," Voetbal International report.
Hazard helped transform Zulte from mid-table strugglers into a club that pushed Anderlecht to within four points of the Belgian crown, helping the club achieve Champions League qualification for the first time in their history.
The former RC Lens youth received his first call up to the Belgian squad earlier in the month, and marked the occasion with a goal and two assists for his side in the penultimate game of the campaign in a 5-2 with over Club Brugge.
After pushing Anderlecht to so far, the club have suggested that they will make a move for Hazard this summer should Chelsea wish to loan out the youngster again. Having already done business with the Blues when Romelu Lukaku moved to Stamford Bridge in 2011, Anderlecht's chairman Roger Vanden Stock believes the club would have the upper hand if they decide to launch a bid.
