“Then I let the board manage Chelsea the best way that they can.”
Hazard, when asked whether his future at the club was linked whoever is in charge and the players that are signed this summer.
Then the Chelsea £200,000 a week forward added:
“Yeah, I want to know.
“I want to know, but like I say I am focused on the World Cup.
