Eden Hazard has likely played his last home game for Chelsea in his side’s penalty shoot-out win over Frankfurt, with a move to Real Madrid imminent.

The Belgian has been linked with the Spanish giants for over 12 months and appears set to join the club as part of their expected spending spree this summer.

Following the Blues’ dramatic semi-final win, Hazard was asked whether he will ever feature in a Chelsea shirt at Stamford Bridge again.

“I don’t think [about] that,” he said.

“I’m only thinking about winning something for this squad, these fans.

“If it [the final] is my last game I will try to do everything, if it’s not, then I will see. In my mind, I don’t know yet, so that’s it.”

It will be a major blow for Chelsea if Hazard does depart, given the club’s recent failure at appealing their transfer ban handed down by FIFA.

The London club will be unable to purchase players for the next two transfer windows, ending in January 2020, following an investigation into their signing of foreign under-18 players.

Christian Pulisic will join next season from Borussia Dortmund, however whether he is capable of filling the hole left by Hazard remains to be seen.

Hazard will line-up for Chelsea in the UEFA Europa League final against Arsenal on the 29th of May, in what will likely be his last game for the club.
