Eden Hazard’s hint over his Chelsea future
Speculation continues to swirl around whether Hazard will still be a Chelsea player at start of next season.
Real Madrid are constantly named as a possible destination for Hazard.
There is a line of thought which says that Chelsea may soon be thankful to Man United in helping them with Hazard.
If the rumours are true, Jose Mourinho is in the frame to become Real Madrid’s manager once again in the summer.
Were that to happen, one would have to assume that Hazard’s Madrid plans would be shelved.
Following the Watford match Hazard spoke about his future at Chelsea.
The Belgian was drawn into the conversation after chalking up his 100th and 101st goals for the Blues at Vicarage Road:
Scoring 101 goals with this amazing club is something I will never forget, but now I think the fans, the staff, myself, the players, we want more.
I want to score more for this club and then try to be a legend like [Frank] Lampard, [John] Terry, [Didier] Drogba, I try to do my best. But when we are winning we can enjoy a lot.
"I want to score more goals for this club and then try to be a legend like Lampard, Terry, Drogba."
