Jenas believes Hazard is "too good" for Chelsea

"I thought Eden Hazard was unplayable", Jenas said.

When asked whether he thought Hazard should be sold if he refuses to sign an extension, the Italian said: "I don't know, but I think it's right that the club knows the future and has the chance to program the future". I think he has outgrown his position within that team.

"He has gone by everybody and he must be thinking, 'what more do you need me to do?'"

"He needs to move on".

Hazard has won two Premier League titles with the Blues since arriving from Lille during September 2007, and helped the team to FA Cup success last season.

The Belgium playmaker also helped his country reach the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation past year, where he won the Silver Ball as the tournament's second best player behind Croatia's Luka Modric. Hazard and Callum Hudson-Odoi were the highlights for Chelsea, but with Bayern Munich after the youngster, and with the Belgian not exactly keeping his desire to play for Real Madrid a secret, Chelsea supporters are starting to have some concerns.

He was also instrumental to his country winning bronze medal at the 2018 World Cup tourney in Russian Federation after scoring three goals and two assists in six matches.

Hazard was used as a lone striker by Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri at Wembley but struggled to get into the game.

Problems in front of goal have not helped Chelsea's cause, with strikers Alvaro Morata (five) and Olivier Giroud (one) both well short of Hazard's 10 goals in the Premier League this season.

Chelsea have offered Hazard record-breaking wages to make him the highest paid player in the club's history but it's looking increasingly likely that he'll leave. That's how he scores a lot of his goals.

"From the team's perspective, they don't react well to him playing through the middle because they don't respond to the positions he takes up".
