Eden Hazard & Chelsea
Chelsea have Eden Hazard under contract until 2020.
Hazard signed a new five-and-a-half-year deal in February 2015. But many people thought the playmaker to agree an extension over the summer to cement his place as Chelsea’s main man.
At the same time, stories linking Hazard with a Chelsea exit have been doing the rounds for quite a while.
The 26-year-old currently takes home in the region of £200,000-a-week.
Real Madrid are often labelled as the likely suitors should Hazard ever leave Chelsea.
Paid more than Paul Pogba
According to the Express on Sunday, Hazard is ready to agree a new deal with Chelsea.
Haven’t fans heard this many times already?
The Express say that Hazard’s new deal will make him the best paid player in the Premier League, above Paul Pogba.
Pogba is on 290,000 pounds a week at Man United. But Hazard’s new deal will see him earn 300,000 pounds a week with Chelsea.
It’s believed the deal will be completed when Hazard returns from international duty “once some minor details are sorted out”.
