Believe This is a Goodbye to Chelsea: Hazard After Europa Win
Eden Hazard said on Wednesday that his Europa League-winning performance against Arsenal was probably his goodbye to Chelsea.
Hazard has been widely linked with Real Madrid and said in a TV interview on the field straight after the game that "my dream was to play in the Premier League. I did this for seven years for one of the biggest clubs in the world. Maybe it's time for a new challenge."
Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud tore apart Arsenal in the space of 23-second half minutes to give Chelsea a 4-1 to win in the Europa League final on Wednesday.
Pedro found space in the penalty area in the 60th to stroke in a cut-back pass from Hazard, who soon made it 3-0 from the penalty spot after Ainsley Maitland-Niles shoved Giroud in the box.
Two minutes after coming off the bench, Alex Iwobi punished Chelsea for a poor clearance with a volley from the edge of the box to make it 3-1.
