According to Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, the Spaniard does not expect the World Cup to decide Eden Hazard’s future at the club this summer.
Hazard is facing an uncertain future with Chelsea following a poor season last campaign. Chelsea finished outside of the top in the Premier League last season and miss out on a Champions League spot for next season.
Chelsea have won the Premier League title since the 2016/17 season and the Belgian showed impressive performances by contributing with 16 goals.
Hazard netted the winning goal for Chelsea from the penalty spot to give Chelsea the FA Cup title against Manchester United at Wembley to ensure his side does not end the season trophyless.
His superb performances have seen him linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid over the past few seasons, although a deal for his signing hasn’t been materialised so far.
However, Fabregas doesn’t believe his performances for Belgium at the World Cup will affect his stay at Chelsea and believed he would remain even after the tournament.
The former Arsenal midfielder told the Daily Telegraph:
“The World Cup won’t decide Eden’s future, I don’t think.
“Scouts follow you everywhere and he has done more than enough for clubs to see his talent, but I really hope he can stay at Chelsea for many years and become one of the biggest legends in the club’s history.”
The Blues signed Hazard in a deal from Ligue 1 side Lille in the 2012 summer transfer window.
Chelsea signed Hazard in a £32m deal from Ligue 1 side Lille in the summer of 2012. Whether Hazard leaves on remain with Chelsea this summer will be unfolded when the World Cup in Russia ends by July 15.
