Chelsea forward Eden Hazard, 28, says he has told the club about his decision to leave for Real Madrid. He received the playmaker trophy on Sunday after Chelsea's 0-0 draw at Leicester City. "I'm still waiting like you are waiting and like the fans are waiting", he said.
"When you're on the pitch, you try to be focused on the pitch with the ball". I love the Premier League; it's fantastic and the level is the best in the world, I think.
"I am not thinking about this and this, my situation or the club's situation". If it's my last game [the final] I will try to do everything.
It's been a long time coming, but it seems we're finally at the end of the road when it comes to Eden Hazard flirting with a move to Real Madrid.
While Sarriball hasn't been as effective as it was in Serie A, the Italian manager has guided the Blues to a European final where the London club will face off against domestic rivals Arsenal in the Europa League final.
A disappointing performance against his former club at Anfield as Barca crashed out of Europe saw further questions asked of the 26-year-old, and the number of dissenting voices inside the club are now growing.
"I hope of course, like every fan of Chelsea, that he will remain with us", he said. The Belgian has been terrific with the Blues for several seasons now, and he has already won the Premier League and the FA Cup with them.
The club will also be unable to strengthen this summer, after Federation Internationale de Football Association upheld their two-window transfer ban imposed for breaking the rules regarding the signing of foreign U18 players. It's going to be an wonderful experience, one I can't wait for, and to be here in England, speaking English again and meeting all the guys is something I'm thrilled for.
