Chelsea will “do anything” to keep hold of Eden Hazard, according to the Daily Telegraph’s Matt Law.
Despite his impressive start to the new Premier League season, in which Hazard has netted eight goals, there is many in the media which believe that this will be Hazard’s final season at Stamford Bridge as he will sign for Madrid at the end of the season.
However, we are not prepared to let their star man leave the club without a fight and have opened talks with his agents about a possible £350,000-a-week contract, despite the fact he has admitted on numerous occasions that a move to Madrid is high up on his priority list.
And Law says we will do all we can to persuade Hazard to stay, stating: “I think Chelsea would try to make him the best-paid player in the world, if it means they keep him,” said Law on the Sunday Supplement.
“There’s no chance he’ll go in January but possibly next summer. Chelsea would pay him £500,00-a-week in order to keep him. They’d do anything.”
Will money be enough to keep Hazard at Chelsea?
It is no secret that Hazard believes that he cannot win the Ballon D’Or or Champions League at Stamford Nridghe and would love to make the move to La Liga, as that is the best place for him, so even if we offered him £500,000-a-week, he probably would not sign as his mind is surely set on signing for Madrid.
So maybe now we should start looking for possible replacements, as it seems a deal for Hazard is a long way off.
