Hazard has little over 12 months left to run on his current deal to raise questions about his long-term plans.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is thought to be a big admirer of the 28-year-old and the French legend has been tasked with revamping los Blancos following a dreadful campaign.

Former Chelsea FC manager Mourinho, who had to fend off interest from PSG and Real Madrid in Hazard during his spell in charge, has tipped Hazard to finally leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

“It looks like it is the last match in blue for Eden Hazard,” Mourinho told Sky Sports, as quoted by Metro.

“He is a player that was crucial for Chelsea’s success in this last generation and Eden also will try to be what he is the majority of the time – a fantastic player on the pitch.

“He will want to win and possibly go to Real Madrid with a last trophy for Chelsea.”

Hazard has won two Premier League titles, the Europa League, the FA Cup and the League Cup during his spell at the west London side.

The Chelsea FC number 10 could sign off on his time at Stamford Bridge in style with a victory over Arsenal in the Europa League final on Wednesday night,
