Ander Herrera outlines plan to nullify Eden Hazard in FA Cup final

Hazard wants quality signing in the summer or he leaves

Hazard wants quality signing in the summer or he leaves

Chelsea pulled off a coup in signing Hazard in the summer of 2012, but the club's transfer business has been more circumspect since.

Chelsea has recently offered Hazard a new massive £300,000 a week contract, to keep him at the Blues. Alvaro Morata has been inconsistent following a big-money move from Real Madrid, while the jury remains out on the likes of Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater, Antonio Rudiger, Davide Zappacosta and Ross Barkley.

'For me, David is the best by far, ' said Herrera.

But he said: "I'm waiting for new players next season".

'In my opinion he's the best player in the league, I've said that since my first day here'.

"Yeah, [I have to think about] a lot of things, and then we will see".

Hazard also admitted that the season had not been good for Antonio Conte's side, although he did promise that the club will give everything in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

"... I think the FA Cup final is not my last game for Chelsea".

You could certainly have made a case for Hazard in the seasons gone by, but given the exploits of both De Bruyne and Salah this campaign, it could be hard to place the Belgian magician above them.

While he won't be playing in the Champions League next season, after Chelsea were beaten by Liverpool and Tottenham to a place in the top four, at least Hazard is close to completing one of his goals.

The 27-year-old Belgium playmaker is under contract until 2020 and is reportedly mulling over an extension.

"It's up to us to save the season with the FA Cup". For me in my mind, I'm here, I have one week to play now.

Hazard announced his arrival at Chelsea after their memorable Champions League win six years ago. "But one thing is for sure is I'm happy here", he said. I have one week to play now. But the Blues finished fifth this term and have failed to qualify for next season's Champions League. Now we can save a little bit this season, with this trophy.

But chairman Daniel Levy is ready to back his boss after they secured Champions League football again ahead of Chelsea. You know. We'll see. You never know what's happening.
