Eden Hazard to leave Bridge

The report suggests that Chelsea have agreed to part ways with the 28-year-old this summer in a £115 million deal, in the wake of comments by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez alluding towards the club's interest in the Belgian worldwide.

Hazard has just over 12 months left to run on his contract at Stamford Bridge, meaning Madrid must meet Chelsea's asking price in order to push through a deal.

Eden Hazard may not be ready to say where he'll be playing next season, but he has already drawn up his ideal opponents in the Champions League.

Hazard, whose brace was the first in the final of a European competition for an English club since Mark Hughes for Man Utd against Barcelona in the 1991 Cup Winners' Cup, has scored 21 goals and provided 17 assists in a stellar season for the Blues.

The Belgium worldwide will go down as one of Chelsea's greatest ever players, having scored 110 goals in 352 appearances for the club, winning two Premier Leagues, an FA Cup, a League Cup and two Europa Leagues. "I think it was my last game, it's between clubs right now, I can not talk about it yet", he told RMC Sport. "I knew. I knew Eden wanted to leave, of course, but as I said in every press conference, I wanted to respect his decision", said Sarri.

"Chelsea have so many quality players, but none at Hazard's level".

A number of newspapers report the Blues head coach storming off towards the end of Chelsea's training session on the eve of the final in Baku.

Hazard confirmed on Wednesday, after Chelsea had won the Europa League, that it was "probably goodbye".

"A good friend of mine, very close, we arrived seven years ago together from France and if that moment comes, obviously, I'll be very sad". "He is top and I think he would be a great addition to Real Madrid", he said. "We'll have a new side, people will leave I'm sure, some new players too, and we need to be hungry and motivated".

"We have been trying to make Hazard a Real Madrid player for several years", he said.
