Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed that he could quit Stamford Bridge in the future, but not until he’s won another Premier League title.
The 25-year-old endured a miserable campaign last year as he struggled to replicate the level of form that he displayed the previous season to help Chelsea win the title.
However, he looks re-energised under Antonio Conte and has led their charge back up the table in recent weeks to establish himself as a key figure at Stamford Bridge once again.
Speaking to The Guardian, the Belgian international has revealed that the door is open for a departure from Chelsea, but he still has one major task ahead before he considers leaving England.
“I made clear [to Conte] I had no intention of leaving after such a poor year,” he said, as noted in the report. “I didn’t want to go out like that. If I ever leave, it’ll be after winning a championship. You need to go out on a high so that people remember you for the right reasons.”
Chelsea have won five consecutive league games without conceding a goal, and while a whole host of star names could have won it, it was Hazard who scooped the Premier League player of the month award for October this week.
It remains to be seen how long he has to wait for another title before he considers an exit, but Chelsea are certainly on course with their current form to ensure that they’re competing with their direct rivals at the top between now and the end of the campaign.
