It is reported Stamford Bridge officials have been trying to persuade Hazard to commit his future to the club by signing a new contract worth in the region of £300,000 per week.

Jamie Redknapp believes that Chelsea FC could sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid as part of a deal to sell Eden Hazard to the Spanish side.

"I think it is not my last game", Hazard, who will be a key player for Belgium at the World Cup in Russian Federation, said.

"In my opinion he's the best player in the league, I've said that since my first day here". Which is freakish considering he did it last season, and won the Premier League title. "I'm taking my time, it is something big so I will need to think of a lot of things".

Chelsea finished fifth in the league, and while they have the chance to end the season on a high with Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United, Hazard said the club must look to improve the squad for a title challenge. It's more important for me as I've never won this one [the FA Cup]. But more than the money, Hazard is adamant that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich must invest over the summer to bring in the calibre of player to compete for the title next season.

But despite that, he has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer with Real Madrid and Manchester United said to be interested. After the World Cup we will be... 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, for me and them also. We have not qualified for the Champions League, so this season has been bad. But one thing is for sure: "I'm happy here", he added. Now we can save a little bit this season, with this trophy.

'You can see when he receives the ball he knows always what to do. "We will see", he told AP.

But chairman Daniel Levy is ready to back his boss after they secured Champions League football again ahead of Chelsea. So, we will give everything.
