Chelsea want £100m superstar signing this summer to convince Eden Hazard to stay

A desperately poor season really did end in the best possible way for Chelsea.

Issues with Antonio Conte, players out of form and a fifth-place finish represented a pretty dire Premier League campaign, but their FA Cup final victory over Manchester United finally gave fans something to cheer about.

Eden Hazard's first-half penalty sealed the deal at Wembley, with the Blues making up for their 2-1 loss to Arsenal in last year's final.

It was one of their finest displays of the season, with Tiemoue Bakayoko even turning up on the day.

However, it was Hazard's match-winning performance that caught the eye. The Belgian - as he so often is for Chelsea - was the difference, with United's 'big players' like Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez unable to match him.

It is imperative that Chelsea hold on to Hazard this summer, with Real Madrid heavily linked with the Belgian wizard.

Their lack of Champions League football could play a big part in his decision, with his international and Blues teammate Thibaut Courtois also being linked with a move away.

And it seems Chelsea are aware of the need to match Hazard's ambitions at the club, with the Telegraph reporting that the London club are looking to pull of a potentially game-changing signing.

Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski is their number one target, with the club prepared to pay in excess of £100m despite the striker being 30.

Chelsea are confident he wants to leave Germany and will help fund the move by selling £68m flop Alvaro Morata, who's been linked with a return to Juventus.

It seems quite remarkable that the club are preparing to cough up the cash in a period of turmoil, with owner Roman Abramovich embroiled in visa issues and Conte on the brink of being sacked - Chelsea would have to pay the Italian £10m in compensation.


However, the arrival of Lewandowski could potentially be a watershed moment for the club, a Didier Drogba-like signing that could give the club the injection of life it sorely needs.
