Hazard waits on future decision
Eden Hazard says he is fully focused on seeing the season out with Chelsea before a decision is made on his future.
Reports are growing that Hazard has no intention of penning a new deal with the Blues and will push for a move to Real Madrid when the transfer window re-opens.
However the Belgium international is refusing to say what the future holds and just remains focused on trying to help Chelsea finish in the top four and win the Europa League.
Hazard put in a stunning display against West Ham on Monday and hopes that proves where his loyalties are for now.
"I'm just focused on Chelsea," Hazard told ESPN. "One month to play, top four, try to win the Europa League. For the fans I think the most important thing is when they see me on the pitch they just think that my head is with Chelsea. So we'll see after."
It would also appear that Chelsea have to be in the Champions League, one way or another next season, if they are to have a chance of keeping hold.
"Two years in a row not playing Champions League is hard for the players but also for the club," Hazard added. "Chelsea has to play in Champions League every year, but it's hard because we are not the only team that is trying to play Champions League.
"But that's why we are doing everything at the moment to try and stay in the top four."
