Chelsea is set to allow Eden Hazard's departure this summer and would be vying for replacements.

Hazard, 28, joined Chelsea from Lille for £32m in 2012, and has gone on to win two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the Europa League and the League Cup at Stamford Bridge. We have a final to play and then I will see.

The Blues are understood to be holding out for £100 million.

The Belgian star's potential move to the Spanish giants has been one of the worst kept secrets for some time, with the player making it clear he wanted a switch to LaLiga. I'm still waiting like the fans are waiting.' Said the Chelsea man.

"When you are on the pitch, you try to be focused on the pitch with the ball".

"When I am on the pitch I just try to do the best".

According to the same story, Europa League finalists Chelsea FC are the only Premier League club to have shown an interest in bringing the Brazil worldwide back to the Premier League.

The Belgian scored 16 goals in 37 games in the just concluded Premier League season and bagged more assists than any other player in the league (15).

And the French publication report the deal will officially be announced after the Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal on May 29.

But Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits he is powerless when it comes to keeping Hazard at the club, insisting fans much respect his wishes.

Already hinting to an exit over the weekend, Hazard, should this prove correct, will finally get a chance to play under Zinedine Zidane, something he's always dreamed of, idolising the Real Madrid manager as a youngster.

"I hope he will stay". "But at the moment I don't know".

Reports claim that Chelsea will move for Coutinho in case Eden Hazard tries to force a move during the summer. I don't think so. "And he's one of the best players in the world".
