Eden Hazard has challenged Chelsea to make some big signings if he is to extend his contract at the London club.
Chelsea had a disappointing Premier League campaign this year failing to retain their title or even qualify for the Champions League. Hazard wants to win the league again but understands that the team will need to be strengthened to do so.
“I’m waiting for new players next season.” Said Hazard
“I want good players because I want to win next season the Premier League.”
“That’s why I’m taking my time. It’s something big. I need to think about a lot of things. One thing I’m sure is that I’m happy here.”
Chelsea still have a chance to grab silverware this season though with a big FA Cup final this weekend.
“For me in my mind I’m here. I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game. I just want to win.”
“We’re Chelsea. We need trophies at the end of the season,”
“If we can’t be in the Champions League we need the trophy. It’s up to us to save the season with the FA Cup. I’ve never won the FA Cup. I hope this year is for me and for Chelsea. We will give everything.”
The forward’s current deal runs out in 2020 so the Blues still have a bit of time to match the Belgian’s ambition, but they need to act quickly as many top clubs will be eager to offer Chelsea’s talisman a new home.
