Real Madrid target Eden Hazard said he wants to become a “Chelsea legend” after passing 100 goals for the club.
Hazard once again stole the show in his new role in the 2-1 win over Watford, as he netted in either half to give the lads some much needed points, and push them back into the top four.
However, his performances for us over the past few weeks has done nothing to dampen the speculation on his future, with many reports all suggesting that he wants to leave and fulfil his dream of playing for Madrid.
But he has give Maurizio Sarri and the hierarchy a glimmer of hope by announcing that he wants to be a legend after netting his 100th and 101st goals for the club.
He told Sky Sports: “It means a lot, especially because we also won.
“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.”
Could we convince Hazard to reject that move to Madrid?
It is no secret that Hazard loves life here and would stay if we could convince him that he can fulfil his dreams here, so all we need to do is pick up the wins, get back into the Champions League and add some silverware to the side, then he may reject any move to Madrid.
A big contract will be offered by the club, but it will take more than that if we are to sign him up to another £350,000-a-week contract.
