Hazard warns Chelsea chiefs: We must buy good players

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been heavily linked with a Stamford Bridge exit in recent months

"For me, Hazard is the best player in the league", he told The Big Interview with Graham Hunter. But the Blues finished fifth this term and have failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

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.

The Belgian star says he is "taking his time" to decide where his future lies, and that he is "waiting for new players" before he commits to stay at Stamford Bridge.

"If Eden Hazard goes to Real Madrid, I'm sure Chelsea would be keen on a swap deal".

The 27-year-old has been attracting attention from Real Madrid, sparking rumours that he could be leaving in the summer.

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.

The Belgian playmaker has constantly insisted that he is happy at Stamford Bridge but it remains to be seen if Real Madrid will indeed make a move for him this summer. But, for me in my mind, I'm here. Saturday is a massive game, I just want to win, for me and them also.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has named Chelsea's Eden Hazard as the best player in the Premier League. We saw that two years ago.

"Trophies are important. Premier League, Europa League, Champions League".

"I don't think it's my last game". I've never won the FA Cup.

"It's up to us to save the season with the FA Cup".

"You can see when he receives the ball he knows always what to do. We will give everything".

You could certainly have made a case for Hazard in the seasons gone by, but given the exploits of both De Bruyne and Salah this campaign, it could be hard to place the Belgian magician above them.

"I do not know what will happen in the future".
