It is reported Stamford Bridge officials have been trying to persuade Hazard to commit his future to the club by signing a new contract worth in the region of £300,000 per week.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has branded Chelsea winger Eden Hazard as the best player in the Premier League ahead of the two sides' FA Cup final clash. Alvaro Morata has been inconsistent following a big-money move from Real Madrid, while the jury remains out on the likes of Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater, Antonio Rudiger, Davide Zappacosta and Ross Barkley.

"I think it is not my last game", Hazard, who will be a key player for Belgium at the World Cup in Russian Federation, said.

"I'm waiting for new players next season", said Hazard. "It is something big, so I will need to think of a lot of things".

Any supporters seeking reassurance that Saturday's FA Cup final with Manchester United would not be Hazard's last match for Chelsea could take some encouragement from his words yesterday.

KELEMEN: The Trump administration blocked a United Nations statement that would have called for an independent investigation. Similarly, British Prime Minister Theresa May said the use of live fire by Israeli forces was " deeply troubling ".

Hazard has said he is happy at Chelsea as things stand, although he did add that getting the right players in would have an impact on his decision, per Sky Sports' Rory O'Callaghan.

He has been hugely disappointed with missing out on next season's Champions League, after Chelsea went from champions past year to fifth-place.

The 27-year-old has been attracting attention from Real Madrid, sparking rumours that he could be leaving in the summer. After the World Cup we will be... But, for me in my mind, I'm here. "We have one game to play and then we'll see what happens at the end of the season".

"It's always hard after you win the league - we saw it two years ago. I just want to win". Now we can save a little bit this season, with this trophy. You know. We'll see.

The Belgium worldwide has until 2020 to run on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, but with the Blues out of the UEFA Champions League next season, speculation will gather pace regarding a potential transfer. You never know what's happening. So, we will give everything.
