The Belgium worldwide will go down as one of Chelsea's greatest ever players, having scored 110 goals in 352 appearances for the club, winning two Premier Leagues, an FA Cup, a League Cup and two Europa Leagues.
Wednesday's Europa League victory was his second in Chelsea colours, as he also collected a winners' medal - despite not playing - in the 2013 final. I said it two weeks ago.
Fabregas, who believes Hazard is a potential Ballon d'Or victor should he make the switch to Real Madrid, said: "I don't think Chelsea can give him what Eden deserves in terms of winning absolutely everything".
"For once the joy of this Europa League triumph subsides, the club can scarcely bear to contemplate what they will be missing". "Now I have to speak to my club", he said.
"But I don't know if he's coming". But I think he has been very honest until the last day. He's a mate. I am really happy for him and for his future.
That's according to journalist Sid Lowe, who says Barca have come to accept that Coutinho's move to the Nou Camp hasn't been a success.
The club are not willing to take the shirt off Croatian midfielder Luka Modric, who won the Ballon d'Or past year.
Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev was in the crowd, but there were thousands of empty seats in a stadium which holds nearly 70,000.
After a drab first half, Chelsea took control in the 49th minute when Olivier Giroud met Emerson's pass with a diving header into the net.
He set up Pedro Rodriguez for a clipped finish beyond Cech and into the far corner on the hour mark.
