Eden Hazard has warned Chelsea to sign players who will let them challenging in the title race if they want him to commit his future to the club.

Hazard has two years left on his present contract and is considering whether to sign a lucrative extension that would keep him at Stamford Bridge for the remaining prime years of his career.

The Belgian star, anyway, is frustrated by Chelsea’s failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League and, as we explained also yesterday, he is also a real target for clubs like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain.

 Asked what it would take to stay with Chelsea in the long-term, Hazard replied:
“I’m waiting for new players next season. We will see.

“I want good players because I want to win next season the Premier League. I want to win a lot of things.”

This would be Hazard’s last big contract and the forward has no intention of rushing his decision, despite reports that Chelsea are willing to pay him around £300,000 ( € 430,000 ) per week.

That’s why I’m taking my time. It’s something big. I need to think of a lot of things. One thing for sure is I’m happy here.

“We can’t be in the Champions League next season so we need to win trophies. That’s it.

“I say many times before I think it is not my last game. It’s the last game of the season, that’s it.

“After the World Cup then we will be ready for the next season.

“But for me, in my mind, I’m here, I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game. I just want to win for me and them also.”

Hazard reveals the uncertainty surrounding Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has had no impact on the squad.

Conte is expected to leave at the end of the season after his relationship with the club’s board was ruined by their failure to back his transfer plans.

“We don’t think about that. We’re just focused on the game,” Hazard claimed.

“We have one game to play and then we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.”

“I need two more trophies, Champions League and FA Cup. That’s it,” Hazard said about the trophies he is missing in his personal cabinet.

“We’re Chelsea. We need trophies at the end of the season.

“At the moment we have nothing. We have not qualified for the Champions League. So the season has been bad.

“If we can’t be in the Champions League we need the trophy.

“It’s up to us to save the season with the FA Cup. I’ve never won the FA Cup. I hope this year is for me and for Chelsea. We will give everything.”

Chelsea and Hazard will face their former boss José Mourinho this weekend and the Portuguese has been criticised for conservative tactics this season, but Hazard expects United to pose a stern test.

“We know how he will play. We all know that. That’s why we need to be ready,” he concluded.

“It is not in our hands,” said Eden Hazard when asked if Chelsea are still in the race for the 4th spot in the league table. Tottenham remain 2 points above the Blues despite losing at the Hawthorns with a late goal from Jack Livermore last time out.

“It does not only depend on us but we will play, we will hopefully win and then we will see the results of Tottenham and Liverpool and we will give everything”.

“Beating Liverpool is a massive result. Now the target is just to win and be in the top four at the end of the season, and if we play like this the last three games, we can have something special at the end of the season. Let’s hope for something big. We all work together and when we play this kind of game, it is a good feeling after the game”.

Now the target is just to win and be in the top four at the end of the season, and if we play like this the last three games, we can have something special at the end of the season. Let’s hope for something big.

Eden Hazard was full of praise when asked if Chelsea can still cope with Tottenham Hotspur in their three final games of Premier League season. The Belgian star remain confident ahead of the upcoming games against Liverpool, Huddersfield and Newcastle United.

Hazard told Chelsea’s official website: “It was important to keep momentum against Swansea, we are in good form, we are winning tough games, so now we have three games to left play in the league and then we will see what’s happened at the end”.

“Of course, we want to reach the top four, it’s not depending only on Chelsea, but we can do it if we are like we were against Swansea, if we keep fighting together”.

Chelsea face Liverpool on Sunday evening at Stamford Bridge. Hazard added: “We are in the race. Like I said, we have three games to play, we play Liverpool so that is a big game for us next week, so now we can prepare for that game and we have one week to be ready for this big game”.

Mirror Sport journalists smash Chelsea star Eden Hazard claiming he cannot be considered a world class player.

The pundits analysed the Belgians poor displays in the Champions League clashes against Barcelona: Hazard has been long considered a target of Real Madrid, with a move potentially on the cards if Chelsea miss out on the top four this season but performances like the one against the Blaugrana will only hinder his chances of a transfer.

“The real worry for me was Eden Hazard. On the big stage, he just didn’t light it up,” said Mirror Online sports editor Matt Lawless.

“That was a real opportunity and if he is looking, as rumours suggest, towards Real Madrid then that is the kind of game where he has to make some kind of impact.

“Chelsea have gone from being champions to very much being a team in transition now.

“There are so many questions over players’ futures, Antonio Conte’s future and what is going on behind the scenes.

Hazard was naturally compared to Argentine star Leo Messi during his visit to Spain

Mirror Football writer James Whaling said:

“You saw the display that Messi put in. Two goals, all be it Courtois would want to do better, also an assist, and he dragged Barcelona through that game.

“Chelsea weren’t that bad. They hit the woodwork a couple of times. But when Barca needed their talisman to step up, he did.

“Chelsea needed Hazard to do similar and that was an opportunity for him to really take the game by the scruff of the neck.”

 

Lawless added: “That is the difference between a top class player and a world class player. How can you effect games. Messi does that – and did it within two minutes.”

Martin Keown, former Arsenal defender, believes the Fa Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester United will be very thrilling and both managers have different reasons to try to lift the trophy at Wembley.

We are in for a cracking final. There is so much at stake for these two managers,” Keown told the Daily Mail. Jose Mourinho likes to count his trophies and point to his success. ‘Antonio Conte, on the other hand, is yet to win a domestic cup competition having lost last year’s FA Cup final and the final of the 2012 Coppa Italia with Juventus. ‘His team won 30 of their 38 league games last season but for some reason he is yet to find a way to be successful in one-off showpieces. ‘If this is to be Conte’s final game in charge at Chelsea, he will want to go out a winner. A Premier League and an FA Cup in two years would be a very good return. During Chelsea’s semi-final with Southampton, Conte did not sit down for the whole match. There is still plenty of fight left in him. ‘Eden Hazard was electric against Southampton and in Alexis Sanchez, United have a player who scores at Wembley every time he plays there. ‘I just hope that this final does not become a tactical war of attrition. I would like to think the brilliance of the individuals on show will shine through.”
