Chelsea forward Eden Hazard said he expects Wednesday’s 4-1 victory over Arsenal in the Europa League final in baku to be his last game for the club.
Hazard said after the game “I think it’s goodbye, but in football you never know. My dream was to play in the Premier League and I did this for seven years for one of the biggest clubs in the world. So now maybe it’s time for a new challenge,”
the Belgian , who scored twice in the final in Baku, has been heavily linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid and said he had already made up his mind about his future.
“I’ve taken my decision already. Now it depends on the club. I’m just waiting like the fans wait, so you will know in a couple of days,” he added.
“My target today was to win the trophy that’s it, that’s the only thing that was on my mind.
Eden Hazard said earlier in the just concluded season . “When you are on the pitch, you try to be focused on the pitch with the ball. That’s it. When I am on the pitch I just try to do the best. I am not thinking about this and this, my situation or the club’s situation. I just try to win games.”
But the Belgian who registered 16 goals and 15 assists for Chelsea in the Premier League — insisted that the persistent speculation linking him with Madrid in recent months has not affected his focus when it comes to football.
