Cesc Fabregas has urged his Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard to stay at the club, admitting that they “need” to keep him if they are to win trophies next season.
Eden Hazard has continously been linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer and fuelled speculation over his own future by suggesting that it “might be time to discover something different” after six years with Chelsea.
Hazard has made no secret of his desire to play for Madrid at some stage of his career, but Fabregas talked up the importance of The Belgium international to the team and hinted that the Blues cannot afford to lose him this summer.
“I think he’s our best player. We are a top club, we want to be a top team, we want to win things, and for that you need your best players. Eden is one of them,” Fabregas told reporters.
“He’s a player that we all love to play with, especially me. For us, he’s our most important player. Everyone loves him – the fans, the club, the players, and we need him. He knows that.”
