Bad mistake by Chelsea hands Europa League advantage to Arsenal

Belgium global Eden Hazard is reportedly close to agreeing personal terms with Real Madrid over a possible move to the Spanish capital this summer.

So far this campaign, Hazard has scored 19 goals and 15 assists in all competitions for the Blues - and will have a chance to win silverware when they battle Arsenal in the Europa League final. Chelsea will need to be strategic with how they approach the development of their young players coupled with savvy transfer signings, as it does not appear that Russian business tycoon and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is prepared to spend like he had once before.

"I think history is nice - if you can be in the history of this unbelievable club it is something to make you proud but first we have to win". I don't think about that.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp has backed criticism by Chelsea and Arsenal fans over the choice of Baku for this month's Europa League final and said that UEFA needed to address the way it selected host cities.

"Yesterday I was calling some hotel in Madrid to try to book some rooms because I don't know if my family is going to be there, friends, people from Argentina", he told a news conference.

"It's been a very, very long season with all of the rounds of the Europa League and getting the final of the Carabao Cup and playing some tough teams in that", he said. Hazard has just one year left on his contract and the report claims that Chelsea will try to get the best possible value for the 28-year-old.

"Eden is a great guy, an wonderful player, for every club he would be important", he said.

"They also fly to America as well for a post-season friendly on Wednesday, so I expect that their legs might be a little bit heavy this week". I think that they need three or four days completely in rest.

"He's set the ideal example to those around him throughout the campaign and been a huge influence on and off the pitch", Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said. It is more important to arrive in the final, but now we want to win and if we are able to win a trophy after the top four then I think we can finish the season in a very strong way.
