Eden Hazard: I'll stay if Chelsea sign new stars

Eden Hazard: I'll stay if Chelsea sign new stars

And those rumours have only escalated after it has been revealed that Hazard is stalling on signing a new contract, despite Chelsea being "desperate" for him to commit his future.

Jamie Redknapp believes that Chelsea FC could sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid as part of a deal to sell Eden Hazard to the Spanish side.

Ander Herrera has stressed that it will take a team effort to nullify the threat of Eden Hazard during the FA Cup final on Sunday.

"I'm waiting for new players next season", said Hazard. "I want good players because I want to win the Premier League next season". It's something big, so I need to think about a lot of things.

But he is expected to lead Chelsea's attack against Manchester United in the final of the FA Cup at the Wembley stadium.

Chelsea winger Hazard, 27, has been heavily linked with a Stamford Bridge exit in recent months.

Chelsea won the Premier League in Conte's first season as head coach for Hazard's second championship winners' medal in England.

"We are Chelsea and we need a trophy at the end of the season, and at the moment we are nothing". For me in my mind, I'm here, I have one week to play now. "But one thing is for sure is I'm happy here", he said.

With no Champions League football to offer potential new recruits this summer, getting elite players through the door at Chelsea is going to be a challenge.

"It's always hard after when you win the League, we saw it two years ago", he added. "He has some special abilities that I think he hasn't trained them, because you can not train them, you just have them". Now we can save a little bit this season, with this trophy.

The Belgium global has until 2020 to run on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, but with the Blues out of the UEFA Champions League next season, speculation will gather pace regarding a potential transfer. "We will give everything". You know. We'll see. "You never know what's happening for the season".
