Belgium midfielder Thorgan Hazard will leave Borussia Monchengladbach to join Borussia Dortmund in a £34.5m deal this summer.

Sources told ESPN FC in March that Chelsea fear there is nothing they can do to prevent Hazard joining Madrid this summer as he enters the final year of his contract, and Sarri's comments after the West Ham victory indicated that he is resigned to losing his superstar winger.

Hazard is nearing the end of his seventh campaign at Stamford Bridge, but the Belgium worldwide has been heavily linked with a summer switch to Madrid due to just over a year remaining on his contract.

Arriving from French side Lille - with whom he won the Ligue 1 title - on the back of Chelsea's Champions League winning season, Hazard has been at the club for almost seven years, and during that time has played under seven different managers, with Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte winning the Premier League. "A couple of other teams dropped points and we needed to get the win, and we did it in the right manner I think", he said.

"Eden played a wonderful match [against West Ham United]".

While Hazard's heroics were vital on the day to secure the result, they were also important to Chelsea's pursuit of a place in the top four and the Champions League spot that comes with it. "We will try any way to convince him but it is not easy".

With trips to Liverpool and Manchester United to come in Chelsea's last five league games, much will depend on Hazard with Gonzalo Higuain showing little sign of hitting form.

Hazard has made 32 Premier League appearances for Chelsea so far this season, finding the back of the net on 16 occasions and registering a further 12 assists.

After controlling the opening exchanges, Maurizio Sarri's side took a deserved lead midway through the first half when Hazard picked up the ball inside the West Ham half before embarking on a mazy run leaving defenders in his wake.

"I think I was a bit lucky at the end when I shot, but it was a good goal to be fair".

"One month to play, top four, try to win the Europa League. Those are things that involve the club executives and the desire of the player", the ex-Real Madrid forward said.

"I think they could have done more for the English teams in Europe". "He told me he has to decide".
