Chelsea forward Eden Hazard wants to leave the club this summer, after exiting the Champions League this week.

The 27-year-old will be on global duty this summer with his country at the World Cup in Russian Federation, but it is understood that he has now informed his representatives to look for a new club. Courtois again missed the ball between his legs. Instead the Bree-born footballer has reassured supporters that he isn't going anywhere.

"I didn't expect a shot", the Chelsea goalkeeper admitted after the final whistle, looking up at the stands that towered over him. I have a contract until next year and I will be here. "I've played against him many times and conceded goals through my legs with him", Courtois told BT Sport.

"Obviously there is no extension signed but I don't think now is the moment to do it".

Marcos Alonso says Chelsea have no time to dwell on their Champions League exit and must refocus on domestic duties and securing qualification for the competition next season.

"I have no other thing to say. It's easy when you have only one year remaining that other people might say something", he added.

The Blues go to Leicester in Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final and their next Premier League fixture is on April 1 against top-four rivals Tottenham.

Courtois initially joined the Blues from Belgian side KRC Genk but was immediately loaned to Atletico, where he enjoyed a three-season spell.

Reigning league champions Chelsea are fighting to salvage their season, having slipped to fifth in the league table, four points behind Liverpool in fourth and the last of the Uefa Champions League places.

Manchester United's David De Gea is their main target, but with the Red Devils unwilling to sell, the Los Blancos have turned towards Thibaut Courtois.

His potential exit could be followed by Thibaut Courtois, who has also been linked with a move back to La Liga.
