EDEN Hazard warns Chelsea he’ll be leaving unless the club spend big on transfers this summer.
The Real Madrid target is holding off signing a new contract after a disappointing Premier League season.
Hazard, 27, is holding out on signing a new £300,000-a-week contract to see what happens during the transfer window.
The Belgian star has two years left on his current deal but Real Madrid are waiting in the wings.
He warned: “I’m taking my time. I’m waiting for new players next season. We will see.
“I want players, I want to win the Premier League next season … a lot of things.
“It is something big, so I will need to think of a lot of things.”
Roman Abramovich will have the get the chequebook out if he wants Hazard to sign a new contract
Blues boss Antonio Conte shattered Chelsea’s transfer record last summer when he brought in £65 million striker Alvaro Morata — one of eight major buys in a £250m spree during the last year.
Even so, Conte admits he has been a “disaster” in the transfer market and Chelsea have fallen way behind rivals Manchester City in terms of purchasing power.
That scenario has worried ambitious Hazard, who is at the peak of his powers and wants the Stamford Bridge outfit to match his own goals.
He will not be able to play Champions League football with Chelsea next season after a fifth-placed finish saw the club drop into the Europa League.
But at least Hazard is close to completing one of his goals if the Blues can beat Manchester United in Saturday’s FA Cup final. He said: “I need two more trophies — the Champions League and FA Cup.
“Trophies are important. It’s more important for me as I’ve never won this one.
“We can’t be in the Champions League next season so we need to win a trophy.
“For me in my mind, I’m here, I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game.”
Real Madrid are interested and Hazard has made no secret of his admiration for Zinedine Zidane.
