Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has issued a condition to the club ahead of next season and he has demanded the club to make new signings and show more ambition in the summer market when the transfer window opens, according to report in Sky Sports.

Hazard has two years left in his contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit and the Chelsea board is willing to offer him £300,000-a-week in a bid to persuade him to sign a new deal.

The Belgium international believes Chelsea need to significantly strengthen if they are to challenge for the Premier League title next season after a disappointing second campaign under Antonio Conte.

When asked about his contract extension with Chelsea, Hazard said: "I'm waiting for new players next season.

"I want good players because I want to win next season the Premier League."

"That's why I'm taking my time. It's something big. I need to think about a lot of things. One thing I'm sure is that I'm happy here."

Chelsea is in the final of the FA Cup with Manchester United and the former Lille winger says it will not be his final game for the club - regardless of the result.

"I think it's not my last game. It's the last game of the season, that's it," he added.

"For me in my mind, I'm here. I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game. I just want to win."

Hazard admits the current campaign has been a disappointment but insists Chelsea can "save their season" if they beat United at Wembley.

"We're Chelsea. We need trophies at the end of the season," Hazard added. "At the moment we have nothing. We have not qualified for the Champions League. So the season has been bad.

"If we can't be in the Champions League we need the trophy. It's up to us to save the season with the FA Cup. I've never won the FA Cup. I hope this year is for me and for Chelsea. We will give everything."

Hazard willing be willing to claim a Silverware for Chelsea when he face his former boss Jose Mourinho in the FA Cup final in Wembley this weekend.
