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.

The 27-year-old revealed he wanted to become a Chelsea “legend” like Frank Lampard, John Terry and Didier Drogba after he passed 100 goals for the club in their 2-1 win at Watford on Boxing Day.

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.”

Eden Hazard has been in outstanding form for Chelsea this 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.
