EDEN HAZARD dropped his biggest hint yet that he IS off to Real Madrid — and revealed Chelsea already know his decision.
Confirming SunSport’s exclusive, the Belgian, 28, confessed: “I have made my decision. Yes, I told the club a couple of weeks ago.”
Chelsea want £100million for Hazard but boss Maurizio Sarri fuelled speculation that the club will reluctantly sell.
After yesterday’s 0-0 draw at Leicester confirmed they finished third in the Premier League, Sarri declared: “I know very well that Eden tried to do his best for seven seasons at Chelsea.
“He has become one of the best two or three players in the world.
“But I think also that we have to respect him and his decision.”
However, Sarri added: “I hope, of course, like every fan of Chelsea, he will remain with us. But at the moment I don’t know.”
Hazard’s last game looks sure to be the Europa League final against Arsenal on May 29.
At the final whistle yesterday he blew a kiss and gave a thumbs-up sign to Chelsea fans who chanted: “Eden Hazard, we want to you stay” after the final whistle at the King Power.
Asked if his future would be cleared up after the final in Baku, Hazard replied: “I think so. I have made my decision but it is not just about me.
“We have a final to play and then I will see.”
And when asked if he would have preferred to get the issue cleared up earlier in the season, he admitted: “I wanted that, but that’s not happened.
“When you are on the pitch, you try to be focused. That’s it. I just try to win games.”
