Hazard’s seven-season stay at Stamford Bridge will almost certainly come to an end this summer, with the Belgian ace poised to embark on a new challenge in Spain.
The 28-year-old is currently focusing on Wednesday’s meeting with the Gunners, which could see him add a second Europa League title to his haul of five trophies won with Chelsea.

But after the game in Baku, Hazard’s attention will swiftly turn to Madrid.
According to The Mirror, Hazard has set a deadline of seven days after the final for his move to the Bernabeu to be finalised.
But Hazard’s hopes of a swift resolution could be dashed by the differing valuations of the two clubs.
The Mirror claim that Chelsea are holding out for a £112million transfer fee, while Real are just offering £86m at present.
Hazard is due to join up with his international team-mates around June 4, with Belgium playing Kazakhstan on June 8 and then Scotland on June 11.
