Speaking after Chelsea's Europa League 4-1 win in Baku on Wednesday night, Hazard told reporters: "I've made my decision and I told Chelsea two weeks ago".

The match came to life with a flood of second-half goals, started by Olivier Giroud's 49th-minute opener against his old club.

"But of course, there's a difference between believing you can get a good deal for a player and actually finding the club that will do this".

The likes of Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio failed to reach anywhere near the heights that were expected of them as Karim Benzema's tally of 30 was by far the biggest of any Los Blancos player. "He's been wonderful for us and I hope he still wins trophies with Real Madrid".

"I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too". 'I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole. The controversial Argentinian has endured a mixed managerial career, leading his country to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

"That's what you have to do when you are the owner or the president of a club and a player says that he wants to leave. I think it is a goodbye, but in football you never know", Hazard told BT Sport after the game. That's why the fans love him because he didn't play with the club, he didn't move for another contract. "There are ups and downs, but the pleasure of playing football is still there". Sarri remains their most attainable target and the expectation is he will leave after just one year at Stamford Bridge.

CHELSEA'S outgoing club captain Gary Cahill was proud to help lift the Europa League after his final match before heading for pastures new.

Chelsea will be back in the Champions League next season, but there will be no return to Europe's top table for Arsenal.

He was visibly frustrated in the build-up to the final when he walked out of training in another indication that he was exasperated with how his tenure was being received.

In a team that looked low on confidence, struggling to adapt to Sarri's methods, he was so often the creative inspiration, scoring 21 goals and providing 17 assists. I don't know what is going to happen next, but we can only wish him the best because he did a lot for Chelsea.

"One of the best teams, in one of the best championships in the world".
