Eden Hazard warns Chelsea to make big signing to convince him to sign new contract

Eden Hazard has warned Chelsea they must match his ambitions to win the Premier League next season by bringing in top signings in the summer.

Hazard is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2020 but with constant reports over a move to Real Madrid circulating the Blues are eager to tie him down on a new deal.

The 27-year-old, though, has warned that he will wait and see what signings Chelsea make before committing his long-term future to the club.

"I'm waiting for new players next season,” said Hazard.

“I want good players because I want to win next season the Premier League."

Hazard is currently 4/7 to stay at Chelsea next season and 5/4 to leave Stamford Bridge - with Real Madrid the most likely destination as 11/8 favourites to sign him.

With Chelsea also missing out on the Champions League, the lure of Real Madrid could pull even stronger for Hazard, who wants to be convinced the club is targeting the Premier League title for him to stay.

That and the fact it could be a last big-money contract mean he’s taking his time over the decision, but he did hint that it won’t be his last game for Chelsea.

"That's why I'm taking my time,” he added.

“It's something big. I need to think about a lot of things. One thing I'm sure is that I'm happy here.

"I think it's not my last game. It's the last game of the season, that's it.

"For me in my mind I'm here. I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game. I just want to win."

Hazard is still irked by the fact he’s not been able to win either the FA Cup or Champions League with Chelsea yet, and he’s looking to at least take one of those off the list at Wembley on Saturday.

"I need two more trophies, Champions League and FA Cup. That's it," Hazard said.

"We're Chelsea. We need trophies at the end of the season. At the moment we have nothing. We have not qualified for the Champions League. So the season has been bad.

"If we can't be in the Champions League we need the trophy.

"It's up to us to save the season with the FA Cup. I've never won the FA Cup. I hope this year is for me and for Chelsea. We will give everything."

Chelsea and Hazard face a familiar foe in Jose Mourinho, who had two spells as Blues boss.

Hazard added: "We know how he will play. We all know that. That's why we need to be ready."
