Chelsea news: How Eden Hazard responded when fans begged him to stay at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea star Eden Hazard shook his head, laughed and drove off when begged to stay at Stamford Bridge by a pair of Blues fans.

The Belgian is widely expected to join Real Madrid this summer, and after a magnificent season which has seen him involved in half of Chelsea’s Premier League goals, fans are desperate to keep him.

This could be Hazard’s final season at Chelsea

A video has emerged of two supporters stopping alongside Hazard in traffic after Sunday’s 3-0 win over Watford – which secured Champions League qualification for next season.

They plead with him to, ‘Stay at Chelsea, stay at Chelsea’ – and the 28-year-old, known for his cheeky personality, decides to toy with their emotions.

Hazard’s laugh at the end suggests he was joking – and it’s unlikely this constitutes any serious hint about his future.

However, reports have emerged on Monday to suggest he is close to the exit door.

According to The Sun, Blues chiefs promised Hazard last summer that he would leave for La Liga with their blessing if he stayed for one more year.

And the player and his representatives have reportedly reminded Chelsea that he has honoured his side of their arrangement and urged the club to agree a fee for his transfer.

It is understood Madrid are willing to pay £90million but the Blues want more for Hazard, who has just one more year remaining on his contract.
