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.
