Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has again played coy on speculation surrounding his future but states he is not treating the Europa League final as if it is his last match for the Blues.
The Belgium international is out of contract next summer and refusing to sign an extension, with Chelsea, understood to cash in and sell their talisman to Real Madrid in a move that could reach £100 million.
However, despite the speculation surrounding him, Eden Hazard says he is only focused on claiming a trophy for the Blues.
‘My last match? I do not think that at all,’ Hazard told RMC Sport. ‘I’m only thinking about winning this match and then what will happen after that happens. I have an important week to prepare, with a trophy to play for.’
Chelsea take on London rivals Arsenal in Baku in one of two all-English European finals and Eden Hazard believes the match, though 2,500 miles away, will feel just like a Premier League game: ‘It’s a bit far, but we are preparing for it in the same way as if it was in the Premier League. It’s a European final, a great moment for both clubs.
Eden Hazard did have a successful career at Stamford Bridge winning the Europa League, Premier League twice adding the League cup and the FA Cup during his seven years stay at the Bridge.
Chelsea are trying to get as much as €100 million for the attacker’s signature as they do not want to let him leave on cheap.
