Real Madrid have been keen on signing Eden Hazard for over two years now, and the Belgian was reportedly close to making a move to the Santiago Bernabeu last season but the deal didn’t pull through.
Hazard has a year left on his Chelsea contract, with rumours claiming that he is all set to join Real Madrid this summer. Hazard has so far refused to sign a new Chelsea deal, and it’s believed that his heart is already in the Spanish capital.
Hazard has remained tight lipped on where he’ll play next season and he is keen to end the season with silverware as Chelsea and Arsenal battle hard for the Europa League trophy at the final in Baku.
However, former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho believes that the final in Baku will be Hazard’s last game for Chelsea.
“It looks like it is the last match in blue for Eden Hazard,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“He is a player that was crucial for Chelsea’s success in this last generation and Eden also will try to be what he is the majority of the time – a fantastic player on the pitch.
“He will want to win and possibly go to Real Madrid with a last trophy for Chelsea.”
Hazard has now played down the speculation surrounding his future and insists he is only focused on claiming a trophy for Chelsea.
“My last match? I do not think that at all,” Hazard told RMC Sport.
“I’m only thinking about winning this match and then what will happen after that will happen. I have an important week to prepare, with a trophy to play for.”
