The Belgian International wants some time before signing a new contract
Eden Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in the summer of 2012 and has been the mainstay in the team. He has established himself as one of the best forwards in the world with his extraordinary performances over the past few seasons.
Despite Chelsea struggling this season in the Premier League, the Belgian International has managed to score 16 goals for them in all competitions. But the Blues will miss the Champions League next season after missing the top 4 spot and the winger has been heavily linked with summer exit.
Real Madrid have been interested in the 27 year old and it has been suggested that if the club comes for him then it would be very difficult for the Premier League giants to keep hold of their star.
Antonio Conte’s side are very keen to keep hold of Hazard and have been trying to persuade to commit his future to the club by signing a new contract worth around £300,000 per week.
The Belgian has claimed that his future could depend on whether the club recruits well or not in the coming weeks.
“I’m waiting for new players next season,” said Hazard as quoted by Goal. “I want good players, because I want to win the Premier League next season.”
Hazard is also aware that his next contract could be one of the last he signs during the prime of his career, adding: “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.”
“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.”
