Chelsea news: Eden Hazard refuses to rule out summer exit despite claiming he wants to become a club legend
Chelsea star Eden Hazard says he will make a decision on his future plans at the end of the season.
This left many Blues fans hoping he will stay at the club beyond his current deal, which expires in 18 months.
But Hazard, who has been long sought after by Real Madrid, says he is in no rush to sort out his long term plans.
Asked if his desire to go down in Chelsea history means he could stay at Stamford Bridge for the long haul, Hazard replied: “To be fair I’m just focused on the pitch, and we’ll see at the end of the season.”
Hazard’s direct hand in 19 goals in 18 Premier League games this term is the highest of any player in the top-flight.
Chelsea’s talisman now has 10 goals and nine assists at the season’s halfway point, and has found himself operating as a ‘false nine’ in recent weeks.
While reiterating he feels most comfortable as a winger, Hazard again vowed to keep on slotting in wherever manager Maurizio Sarri needs him most.

“I’m scoring more goals, I don’t feel I’m playing better, I’m just scoring more goals,” said Hazard.
“I don’t know why, maybe I’m just nearer to the goal. My position is winger. I feel better as a winger, but today I did well as a striker, and against Brighton I did well as a striker. The manager chooses where to put me on the pitch and then I try to do my best.”
