Chelsea team-mates have expressed their desire for Eden hazard to stay at Stamford Bridge after defeating Frankfurt 4-3 on penalties on Thursday.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek started the crusade after Hazard’s penalty sealed their place in the Europa League final.
“I’m sure everyone here would love him to stay and be a Chelsea player until he finishes his career.
“But who knows what he’s thinking. Over the last seven, eight years he’s been fantastic, the trophies he has helped us win. Whatever decision he makes we will respect it.” Loftus said.
Hazard will be out of contract at the end of next season and is wanted by Real Madrid, a club he has dreamed of playing for since he was a child.
Winger Willian, added: “For me I hope he stay, but in football you never know. I think his head is here, to play for Chelsea.
“Then after he’s finished the season maybe he can talk about his situation. I don’t know anything about him leaving so for me I hope he can stay.
“He’s very important, a special player, he’s very important for us, he helps us a lot.
“And he’s one of the best players in the world.”
Chelsea, at this moment, cannot sign players for the next two transfer windows, depending on the outcome of their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and they will hope he stays if the ban is upheld.
