No Real Madrid Move, Hazard Set To Stay At Chelsea
Eden Hazard will sign a new £300,000-a-week deal to stay at Chelsea.
The Blues have managed to convince the Belgian forward to sign a new contract as they successfully stave off interest from Real Madrid, according to talkSPORT.
John Terry is also set to stay on for one final hurrah at Stamford Bridge.
Earlier this week, there were reports that Chelsea planning to hold talks with Hazard, despite the Belgian only signing a new £200,000-a-week deal two years ago.
The 26-year-old is in the process of appointing a new agent and that has made the situation more complicated, but the Blues are confident he will stay.
Hazard’s current deal expires in 2020 but Chelsea are willing to extend that by a further two years as well as adding valuable bonuses to his £100k-a-week pay rise.
Blues’ chiefs have also promised Hazard that he can expect the squad to be considerably strengthened this summer as the club prepare to return to Champions League football.
Hazard had earlier hinted he was happy to stay in London, claiming his family were very much settled in the capital.
However, it is never easy to hold off the lure – and money – of giants such as Real Madrid, who were confident they would land their man in a hundred million deal.
A potential deal spooked Chelsea so much, they even started to look at life after Hazard – considering a move for Arsenal man Alexis Sanchez.
Meanwhile, talkSPORT also claims Terry will also sign a new deal at the Stamford Bridge. The contract would almost certainly involve a pay-cut, with JT unlikely to play much in what will certainly be his final season at Stamford Bridge.
Terry had been linked with moves elsewhere, but he is understood to want to stay at the club, after staying on this season on a one-year agreement.
But now it seems the four-time Premier League winner will remain in West London at least another 12 months.
