Eden Hazard could have played his last game for Chelsea tonight.

The Belgian player, who scored a brace in the Europa League final against Arsenal, hinted to a move when interviewed on the pitch after the final whistle:

The Belgian, 28, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and said that he is now “waiting on both clubs’ decision” after “taking my own decision, who I’ve communicated to both clubs.”

I think it’s a goodbye, but in football you never know,” he told BT Sport after winning his second Europa League in 6 years with Chelsea ( the previous one was in 2013, in his first season at Stamford Bridge)

“We will decide in a few days, the only target in my mind was to win this final.”

Then he added: “Maybe now it is the time for a new challenge.

“My dream was to play in the Premier League and I have done that for one of the biggest clubs.”

Hazard joined the Blues for £32m from Lille in summer 2012 and made 352 appearances in seven years, scoring a total of 110 goals, the latest ones tonight in the Baku final.

Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane emerged as a potential candidate to replace Maurizio Sarri, should the Italian boss fail to gain the trust of Chelsea board facing sack from his role, according to several reports in England.

The Frenchman, who won three Champions League titles in a row with Los Blancos, left the club last summer and is believed to be considering the prospect of working in the Premier League in a near future.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer widely improving Manchester United’s results (despite their recent UCL defeat against Paris Saint-Germain) a move to Old Trafford looks unlikely before the end of current season.

We reported yesterday Maurizio Sarri should be given at least an additional month to persuade Roman Abramovich he’s the right man to lead Chelsea.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard insisted Maurizio Sarri‘s style of play remains his favourite since moving to Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian told Chelsea’s official website: “All the managers I’ve played for have given me something,”

“From when I started with Claude Puel at Lille to now with Maurizio Sarri.

“They all see football in different ways, which is why I’m the player I am. They have all given me important advice. Mourinho was special, but the way Sarri and Garcia like to play is more like my philosophy of football.”

It is understood Hazard’s contract expires in June 2020, with Real Madrid heavily linked with a move to land him to Santiago Bernabeu next summer.

While Chelsea‘s fans are waiting for the signing of Gonzalo Higuain and Alvaro Morata’s move to Atletico Madrid, once again Eden Hazard hasn’t ruled out the chance of a future with Real Madrid.

When asked by France Football about his move to the current champions of Europe, the Blues’ star claimed:

Why not? I’ve seen all there is to see”. Hazard explained. “I‘ve won everything here: the two cups, the league, apart from the Community Shield, but that doesn’t mean I am going to leave. I have always said that, after England, I wanted to discover something else. But there are things that could make me stay too. I’m not far off the peak of my career, that’s sure. Even if things can always be better, that’s for sure too. I am at a crossroads, yes. We are going to take the right turn.”

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata upstaged teammate Cesc Fabregas on his last appearance with the Blues as the former Real Madrid star managed to score a brace which sent Maurizio Sarri‘s men to FA Cup Fourth Round on Saturday afternoon.

The ex Arsenal and Barcelona star, who missed a penalty in a tough first half at Stamford Bridge, then received a warm standing ovation as he left the pitch with five minutes left to go in the second period.

It is understood Fabregas will join AS Monaco in the next few days, after being handed the captain’s armband for his last game in a Chelsea shirt.

However, Alvaro Morata wanted to share his feelings via Instagram with an emotional post dedicated to his compatriot: “You do not know how much I’m going to miss you!” wrote the Spaniard.

“To you and your wonderful family, thank you very much for helping us in EVERYTHING possible.

“Thanks for all the moments lived and good luck in everything you do!”

Mateo Kovacic is enjoying his stay at Chelsea and not only he said that coming to London has been a very good choice, but he also claims he would also like to play with the Blues, longer then his season-long loan.

“I think it was the most important thing I did for now in my career”. the midfielder told Sky Sports when asked about his move during the last summer transfer window. “It was a step I wanted a lot, I wanted to come here. I say thank you to my previous club, to Chelsea as well, who wanted me a lot. I am enjoying it and I like it a lot here. “For now, I am happy here. The city is amazing, the club is one of the best in the world, and my team-mates are great. I need to respect my previous club, Real Madrid. I can imagine myself staying here, but I have a contract I need to respect, and that is what I will do”.

If Mateo Kovacic would like a permanent move from Real Madrid to Chelsea, the Spanish giants, on the other hand, want to sign Eden Hazard:

For me, he is an incredible player,” Kovacic explained. “I did not know he was that good and he can easily be one of the two or three best players in the world. He asked me how it was there (at Real) but we are looking forward to having a great season together, to be fully concentrated on Chelsea. He is focused a lot on doing great things with Chelsea.”

According to OK Diario Eden Hazard will move to Real Madrid next January: the Spanish outlet reports that Chelsea have accepted that they are likely to lose the Belgian star, even in the start of 2019.

Los Blancos failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer transfer window after the Portuguese star moved to Juventus in July, and their shaky start to the season continued with a 3-0 defeat at Eibar on Saturday afternoon.

Hazard has been in fine form for Chelsea this term, managing eight goals and four assists in 15 appearances in all competitions, with seven of those strikes coming in the Premier League.

The Belgium international has admitted he’s got a lot of esteem of new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri but he will see his Blues contract expire at the end of next season and revealed during the summer that he dreams to move to Santiago Bernabéu.

However, in the last few days the player himself claimed he would be happy also to stay at Stamford Bridge for his entire career.

“I can finish with Chelsea,” Hazard said. No problem at all. I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here. So If I don’t go to Spain, it is not a problem. I love the fans – I think the fans love me! What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that’s it.”
