"I can hear everything the fans say, 'Come on Hazard!' 'Do some magic, please!' That's why I love to play there".

Cesc Fabregas has little conviction that Chelsea star man Eden Hazard will sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

The 28-year-old was on target twice in Chelsea's 5-0 win over Huddersfield in the Premier League and the weight of the club will be on his shoulders when they take on Manchester City at the Etihad.

Hazard's future is a hot topic again after announcing he'd already made a decision about his future.

"Celtic tried to buy me, but this is the best moment of my career and I want to stay here", he is quoted as saying.

Belgian star Eden Hazard has been persistently linked with a move to Spain's European champions Real Madrid but he told The Times he is happy at Chelsea and agrees with manager Maurizio Sarri over his tactics.


"Possession! Possession! The manager likes possession!" said Hazard, who spoke to The Times on a visit to a school for Chelsea Foundation talking about diversity and equality. In the past we used to play more counter-attack.

Discussing 60-year-old Sarri, Hazard added: 'I like this kind of football. "But I speak with Eden about his position on the pitch", he said.

"N'Golo's a clever guy, one of the best in his position, maybe the best in the world".

Higuaín, 31, joined Chelsea on loan last month, with the club seeking a reliable centre forward, even though his spell on loan at AC Milan this season yielded only eight goals in 20 games.

"I've only played two games with Higuain and I know we can do something great together, not only with him but also with the other strikers, the other winger. But Higuain is a fantastic striker".
