Chelsea fans won’t be too pleased with their former player Cesc Fabregas here as he explains why Eden Hazard has to leave the club for a big name like Real Madrid.
As noted in the tweet below, Hazard dropped a big hint this was his final game for Chelsea tonight as he played a starring role in helping the Blues beat Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final.
Eden Hazard: "I think it's a goodbye … maybe it's time for a new challenge."
Good journalism from BT Sport to push for the answer, at a difficult time. And lands the story that takes the EL win forward – Hazard is off to Madrid.

AS have been among the many sources to suggest the Belgian’s move to the Bernabeu is close, and Fabregas believes it’s the best thing for him to achieve his full potential.
Speaking on punditry duty with BT Sport, the former Chelsea midfielder said there is a ‘ceiling’ for Hazard at Stamford Bridge, with the 28-year-old not currently able to win the biggest prizes or challenge for the Ballon d’Or with the west London giants.
"I don't think Chelsea can give him what he deserves."
"There is a ceiling he can go much higher than."
"He can win the Ballon d'Or at Real Madrid."
