Chelsea star Eden Hazard has once again dismissed speculation regarding his future at the club.
His performances, and goals, have alerted Real Madrid to the fact that he is now in his prime and enjoying the best football of his career and they are reportedly ready to delve in and take the Belgian superstar to the Bernabeu in a deal worth around £60 million.
Maurizio Sarri convinced Hazard to stick with the club for one more season and the club made it clear that they would not stand in his way should he decide to pursue a dream move to Real Madrid, and reports claim the Belgian star has told the club to honour their commitment.
But after the Belgian scored the winning penalty against Eintracht Frankfurt to send the club into the Europa League final, Hazard was asked after the game if he had just played his last game in front of the Blues’ home support.
He said on the Sky Sports website: ‘I don’t think about that. I’m only thinking about winning something for this club and this squad.
‘If it’s my last game I will try to do everything for this club to win a trophy. In my mind I don’t know yet [if it will be his last game].’
Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho ‘is not a Barcelona player’ and will be sold during the summer window.
We are on the look-out for an adequate replacement for Hazard, as the Belgian will be heading to Real Madrid at the end of the season, meaning Maurizio Sarri will be losing his creative force in midfield.
And we have been boosted by reports in the ESPN website which have claimed that Coutinho will be leaving Barcelona at the end of the season, as it has been claimed that they will look to revamp the side after the loss to Liverpool in the Champions League.
“Coutinho is not a Barcelona player, that’s been made clear,” a club source told ESPN.
