Eden Hazard has strongly hinted his two-goal performance in Chelsea's 4-1 Europa League win over Arsenal on Wednesday night will be his final appearance for the English Premiership football club.

Eden Hazard is now expected to complete a mega move to Spanish giants Real Madrid this summer in which Chelsea will be looking for a replacement.

"We will see. We will know in a couple of days", Hazard said.

"I am optimistic about the immediate future of the club with the new players that will arrive".

As a result of his situation, Chelsea are keeping close tabs on the Brazilian due to his proven track record in the Premier League as well as his similar characteristics to Hazard.

"It's not sad", Kante told Sky Sports. I'm not sure he is, but he's certainly capable of scoring regular, mid-20s or 30-a-season. I think he's that good.

102 - This term, Hazard has averaged a goal or assist every 102 minutes, making it easily his most productive campaign at the club, improving on his record of a goal involvement every 128.6 minutes from the previous season.

Hazard has won two Premier League titles, two Europa League crowns, the FA Cup and the League Cup during his stint at Chelsea FC.

"Hazard going to Real Madrid would be a huge step for him - and he deserves it". The player has clearly said he wants to leave and wants a new challenge. "Callum has known this club since he was young and he has the talents to one day try to be like Eden", he said.

"The season is finished one hour ago".

The Italian champions are in no rush and may want to wait until after Saturday's Champions League final given they hold an interest in Mauricio Pochettino, even though Tottenham Hotspur believe their manager will stay.
