Hazard have made it known to the Blues faithful that his future lays elsewhere with Madrid mooted as a possible destination for a player who has turned into a man since joining the Blues back in 2012.

Prior to him joining the Blues, there was a big interest from other Premier League giants with both United, City and Liverpool after his signature but joining the Blues was what the Belgian decided and he says it's a nice choice for him.

Reflecting on on his time with the London faithful's , Hazard said he was scared when he joined the Blues at first but he has though grown from a baby to a 'big man'.

OPINION: Chelsea Should Allow 'Loyal' Hazard To Leave

"When I came here I was a baby. Now I am a big man," Hazard said according to The Mirror. "But as a person I didn’t change. I am still the same.

"As a player I score more goals and I have more experience, but I try to be the same as when I started. And then when I finish I will try to be the same.

"I was a little bit scared when I first arrived. Didier Drogba had left and when you have Drogba in the team for sure you win a trophy. But at the end I played with top players.

"And if you look at my seven years at Chelsea we did ­something amazing together.

"We won trophies together and I am just happy. I had a chance to sign for Manchester United, Man City, Tottenham but I made the right decision.

"I spoke with the owner and I had Drogba and Joe Cole on the phone telling me this was the best club."

Chelsea didn't have the best of the season but the  Belgian managed to score 19 goals and created 16 assists in all competitions this season, making it his most productive campaign since joining the club

Irrespective of his club failure especially in challenging the big gongs domestically this season, he  has had better years and believes he can keep improving.

"I just want to enjoy myself on the pitch and play good," he added.

"The best example is with ­Belgium. I played my best game against Brazil in the World Cup and I didn’t score or make an ­assist. That is what I like to do.

"I don’t think about scoring goals or assists. I just want to do my best. In terms of goals and assists this has been my best ­season, but for me a good season is not whether I score 40 goals.

"I don’t think it is my best ­season overall. I don’t look on just about statistics. I can still improve.

"You can always improve and you can ­always learn in football, the more you play the more you learn. That is my philosophy here or if I play in another ­country. The main thing is to be happy on the pitch."

Chelsea are taking on Arsenal in Baku on Wednesday in their Europa League final and the winger have urged the fans to be optimistic about that encounter.

“When you play for ­Chelsea, at the start of the ­season people think about which trophy we can have at the end of May".

"So this one is an important one. We lost the EFL Cup final two months ago, so at the end of the season this is the trophy we can go for.

“If we win the Europa League, the season can still be good. OK not perfect, because at the end you want to compete for the ­Premier League and FA Cup.

“But we have improved in the past two months. And if we go to Baku with a strong approach we can do something good there.”
