Eden Hazard is in his final days for Chelsea, as the Belgian winger revealed his mind is made up on where his future lies for next season.
Real Madrid have come calling once more, and probably for the final time. With Chelsea demanding €130 million (£112m/$146m) for their star player whose current contract expires in 2020.
Talks between both parties have been ongoing for a long time now, and Eden Hazard has revealed he could conclude his stay with the West London blues when they face Arsenal at Baku for the Europa League trophy.
Chelsea fans still have slight hope, they could convince the Talisman to remain beyond the season, with a banner pleading with the Belgian to stay, as he featured in what could very well be his last Premier League game against Leicester City on Sunday.
Quizzed on whether the guarantee of playing in Europe’s premier club competition may persuade him to stay at Chelsea, Eden Hazard said: “No, I don’t think so…I have made my decision, that’s it.
“I’m still waiting [for the situation to develop]. Yes [I told the club] a couple of weeks ago.
“I have made my decision but it is not just about me. We have a final to play and then I will see. I wanted that [to have the situation sorted out] but that’s not happened. I’m still waiting like you are waiting and like the fans are waiting.”
Eden Hazard has kept fans on the ledge for nearly a year now, with the player having displayed nothing but loyalty by rejecting Real Madrid twice in the past.
Hazard revealed talks about him leaving, has never been a distraction and he has always given the West London blues his best at all times.
“I have never, never been distracted,” He said.
“When you are on the pitch, you try to be focused on the pitch with the ball. That’s it.
“When I am on the pitch I just try to do the best. I am not thinking about this and this, my situation or the club’s situation. I just try to win games.”
Chelsea have just one game left this season against Arsenal for the Europa League title at Baku, with fans assured of what could be a last peek at their Talisman in a West London blue outfit for probably the final time.
