Hazard tells Chelsea to splash the cash

And those rumours have only escalated after it has been revealed that Hazard is stalling on signing a new contract, despite Chelsea being "desperate" for him to commit his future.

Despite links with a move to Real Madrid, Hazard - who joined from Lille for a reported £32m in 2012 - insists he is "happy" at Stamford Bridge. Hazard wants to win the league again but understands that the team will need to be strengthened to do so. It's something big, so I need to think about a lot of things. 'I believe he has one thing that comes from god.

"I'm waiting for new players next season". You can see when he receives the ball he knows always what to do. A lot of things, then we will see.

But Eden Hazard's future is still unclear.

"For me, David [De Gea] is the best [goalkeeper] by far".

He said: "We are focused, we are together, we are ready".

"I think it's not my last game".

"After a season of ups and downs, we can finish on an up".

Hazard scored 12 times and created six goals as Chelsea missed out on Champions League football for just the second time in 15 seasons by finishing fifth in the Premier League.

Chelsea's dismal fifth-place finish after winning the title past year, was capped off a by a terrible display in the 3-0 defeat at Newcastle on Sunday in their final league game.

Romelu Lukaku remains a doubt for the FA Cup final after returning to United's training base in an attempt to get himself fit. "We will see", he told AP.

And if Chelsea can lift the FA Cup on Saturday then the European Cup will be the one major honour to elude him during his time at Stamford Bridge.

De Bruyne, meanwhile, has been the standout player in a Manchester City side which not only strolled to the Premier League title with a record points total, but which are also credited with reshaping how fans and pundits think about the Beautiful Game in this country.
