Hazard was one of the key figures in Chelsea‘s title success last season, but was pipped to the individual honours by team-mate N’Golo Kante, while his highest placing in the Ballon d’Or ranking has been eighth, back in 2015.
But Fabregas told Sky Sports: “He is a player who can do one on one, he can get possession of the ball, he can pass and has great ability with the ball.
“With Eden, if he wants to win the Ballon d’Or it’s up to him.
“I’ve played football for a long time and played with top, top players and he has all the quality, I know what he can do.”
“I have told him that it’s up to him, I like to be honest,” Fabregas added. “In my opinion, he has the quality.”
“Without the ball he’s very difficult to bring down and get the ball off him. When he is on top of his game he’s up there with the very best.”
