Eden Hazard wants to know who will be in charge of Chelsea next season and has suggested that his future at the club could be affected by it.
There has been much speculation surrounding Antonio Conte‘s future at Stamford Bridge and failure to guide them to Champions League qualification last season will have seen the Italian come under more scrutiny.
However, after being linked with a move away from the Premier League side for months, Conte could well likely see out the year that is left on his contract as Roman Abramovich looks to keep costs down.

Former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri looked to be the favourite to replace Conte but a move now looks off the cards.
Immediately after Chelsea’s triumph in the FA Cup last month, Hazard cast doubt over his future with the club and it appears that the Belgian star will not decide where he will end up until the situation becomes clearer.
The 27-year-old has two years left on his current deal with Chelsea.

‘Yeah, I want to know,’ Hazard told reporters. ‘I want to know, but like I say I am focused on the World Cup.
‘If we have something new – manager or players – it is always good to know it, because I want players that can [help bring success back to] Chelsea next season.
‘But, to be fair, the transfer market is not here yet. We will see after.’
