Eden Hazard indicates his Chelsea future could be determined by this summer's close-season activity.

Eden Hazard is anxious to know which manager he will be playing for and which players will arrive at Chelsea next season.

While Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal have already been active in the transfer market this summer, uncertainty persists at Stamford Bridge, particularly with regards to the future of boss Antonio Conte, who has a year left on his contract.

Hazard, who has two years left on his Chelsea deal, is on national team duty with Belgium getting ready for the World Cup, where they have been drawn to play in Group G alongside England, Panama and Tunisia.

Despite helping the Blues win the FA Cup, Hazard admitted he was disappointed with last season's campaign and is keen for clarity about what the future holds for Chelsea next term.

"At the moment I only focus on the World Cup," said Hazard at Belgium's pre-World Cup training camp in Brussels.

"We had a bad season with Chelsea. We won the FA Cup at the end - so it was a little bit better but I'm only focused on the World Cup.

Asked whether his Chelsea future was linked to who is in charge at Stamford Bridge and players that might arrive in the summer, Hazard said: "Yeah I want to know. I want to know, but like I say I am focused on the World Cup.

"If we have something new - manager or players - it is always good to know it because I want players that can [help bring success back to] Chelsea next season. But to be fair the transfer market is not here [in full flow] yet. We will see after."
