Eden Hazard refusing to speculate on Chelsea future


Chelsea star Eden Hazard has admitted he will not decide on whether to sign a new contract until he sees how the club’s summer transfer window plays out.

Despite being contracted to the Blues until 2020, Chelsea officials have reportedly offered the Belgium international a new deal worth £300,000 per week.

The move comes with Hazard once again being linked with a transfer away from the Premier League, with Real Madrid featuring as the most prominent name.

But Hazard insists he is yet to make a call on his future.

“I’m waiting for new players next season,” he said. “I want good players, because I want to win the Premier League next season.”

He added: “That’s why I’m taking my time. It’s something big, so I need to think about a lot of things. But one thing is for sure: I’m happy here.”

Hazard and Chelsea have one more game to play this season, the FA Cup final against Manchester United this weekend.

And he doesn’t expect the fixture to be his last appearance for the club.

“Like I’ve said many times before, I think the FA Cup final is not my last game for Chelsea,” he said. “It’s the last game of the season, that’s it.

“After the World Cup, then we will be ready for the next season. But, for me in my mind, I’m here. I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game, I just want to win, for me and them also.

“We are Chelsea and we need a trophy at the end of the season and, at the moment, we have nothing. We have not qualified for the Champions League, so this season has been bad. Now we can save a little bit this season, with this trophy. So, we will give everything.

“It’s always hard after you win the league. We saw that two years ago. This season was not good but you know – this is Chelsea. You never know what’s happening. But, no, I think this year we dropped too many points at Stamford Bridge. In this condition you can’t be in the top four, so it’s up to us now to save the season with the FA Cup.

“We’ve had bad games, but also played a fantastic game against Liverpool recently, so I hope for Saturday the boys will be ready like we were against Liverpool last week. If we play all together, we can do something, especially against Manchester United.”
