Eden Hazard has insisted playing in the Champions League is not his priority and that he is happy to remain at Chelsea.
The Blues are currently fifth in the Premier League and know they have to win their remaining two matches - and hope either Tottenham or Liverpool slip up - if they are to finish in the top four and qualify for next season's Champions League.
Missing out on the top European competition for a second time in three years could intensify speculation regarding the future of Hazard, who has regularly been linked with Real Madrid.
However, the 27-year-old told French broadcaster SFR Sport: "I hope (the fans) don't want to see me leave.
"I'm doing good things here. I'm happy here. Things can move, or they may not move. We'll see.
