Hazard reveals what will make him stay at Chelsea next season
Long term Real Madrid target Eden Hazard has fired warning to Chelsea suggesting that his future with the club will be determined by the quality of their summer signings.
The Belgium international has only two years left on his contract and Chelsea are trying to tie him down to a new contract by offering a lucrative deal of £300,000-a-week.
The Chelsea talisman was speaking ahead of his side clash with Manchester United in the FA Cup final on Saturday at Wembley Stadium.
Hazard expressed his desire to win the trophy and the Premier League next season and also to play in the Champions League.
Chelsea, however, failed to finish the league in the Champions League qualification spot and Hazard will only be willing to stay if The Blues brings in quality players that can help them win the Premier League next season and qualify for the European top flight.
“I’m waiting for new players next season. We’ll see,” he told The Mirror.
“I want good players, because I want to win the Premier League next season.
“Yeah, I have to think about a lot of things, and then we will see. That’s why I’m taking my time. It’s something big.”
According to Hazard, winning trophies is everything in football particularly the FA is important to him because he has never won it since signing for Chelsea six years ago.
“I need two more trophies: Champions League and FA Cup. I think, to play Champions League next season is important. To win trophies also.
“Trophies are important. FA Cup, League Cup, Premier League, Champions League. You know?
“And it’s more important for me, because I’ve never won this one. That’s why I want to win.” He added.
With Chelsea’s current boss Antonio Conte set to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer, Hazard insisted that his future is not linked with the manager.
“We don’t think about that. To be fair, we’re just focusing on the game now. We have one game to play and then we will see, what happens at the end of the season or for the new season.”
