Hazard and Chelsea made the game safe in the final minute of normal time when a pinpoint Ross Barkely pass found Hazard in space in the penalty area, who fired past Fabianski to seal the points.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Spanish club are keen to bring the 28-year-old playmaker to Real Madrid this summer as they look to strengthen their squad. However, Chelsea are holding out for £100m despite Hazard having just over a year left on his contract.

Hazard's two goals propelled Chelsea ahead of local rivals Arsenal and Chelsea as they jumped to third place in the Premier League table, yet the quality of their match-winner's performance instantly sparked fresh rumours over his future.

"It's very odd", Sarri said. He's in the last season of contract (next year).

On-loan Blues striker Gonzalo Higuain, a former Real player, also hinted Hazard could be off, saying: "When a player has a desire, it is hard to change his mind".

" It's impossible to find another Hazard; at the moment there isn't another Hazard". We'll try, of course, in any way to convince him to stay, but it's not easy'.

Cowboys, DeMarcus Lawrence getting close on new contract
As for the 26-year old DeMarcus Lawrence, he must now go about the business of proving he is worthy of such a monster contract. Like Lawrence, Clark had a franchise tag placed upon him by his team , and, like Lawrence, he is searching for a new contract.


He was widely expected to solve Chelsea's problems in front of goal following his arrival, with neither Olivier Giroud nor Alvaro Morata being particularly impressive for Maurizio Sarri's side during the first half of the campaign. He is absolutely good enough to play for the top Premier League clubs and in the Champions League. I want to try with Kovacic.

He had scored 23 Premier League goals in the 2012/13 season and finished just three goals behind Robin van Persie who had netted 26 times.

"I have no idea [what he should cost], but we have seen in the last windows every price I think".

"I think I was a bit lucky at the end when I shot, but it was a good goal to be fair".

"I want to do as well as I can so I can be here for next season", Higuain said. "He told me that he has to decide".

'Give him 500k please, we need him, ' tweeted @GreatNalex.
