Hazard is currently away with the Belgium side as they prepare for the Euro 2020 championships in which they are considered as one of the favourites to clinch the trophy.
The 30-year-old spoke about his future during a press conference with the Belgium camp on Monday.
He said: ‘I have a three-year contract with Real Madrid, going back to England is out of the question.
‘Everyone knows that my first two years were not good, so first I want to prove myself at Real Madrid.
‘Certainly, I do not see myself leaving Madrid given the situation of the contract.
‘I know myself and I know when I am in shape. If that is the case, I can give everything for Real next season. That is my plan.’
Belgium kick off their Euro 2020 championships against Russia on June 12, in a group which also consists of Denmark and Finland.
They will be hoping for a better tournament this time around after underachieving in France 2016, when they were knocked out by Wales in the quarter-finals.

Hazard said: ‘It is always good to be here with the group. It will be a great tournament to prepare for. I hope everyone is in shape, including me.’
Should the Belgian playmaker remain at Real Madrid, he will be hoping to finally show off his old form under a new manager.
Real Madrid finished second in LaLiga last season and manager Zinedine Zidane parted ways with the club.
Hazard though was a favourite of Zidane, with the Belgian seen as the man to replace Cristiano Ronaldo when the Portuguese superstar joined Juventus.
It hasn’t quite worked out that way for Hazard, though success this summer with his country could be the catalyst that gets his Madrid career back on track.
