Fresh reports have claimed Chelsea are ready to make Eden Hazard the highest paid player in the Premier League with a whopping £350,000-a-week deal to be offered.
Hazard is lined up for a record breaking £200 million move to Real Madrid at the end of the season after weeks of the Belgian admitting that he would like to one day make the move to La Liga, as he looks to wrestle the Ballon D’or crown away from Lionel Messi and Crsitiano Ronaldo, who have dominated the title over the last few years.
However, the Daily Telegraph has claimed we are looking to take advantage of the uncertainty at Madrid after the sacking of Julen Lopetegui by offering the Belgian superstar a deal that would make him one of the highest paid in the Premier league, with a contract offer to be put on the table of around £350,000-a-week.
And although Hazard has admitted he would like to one day play for Madrid, there is some hope we can keep hold of the Belgian after he recently admitted that he would be happy to finish his career here at Stamford Bridge, telling Sky Sports: “I can finish with Chelsea. No problem at all. I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here. So, if I don’t go to Spain, it is not a problem.
“I love the fans — I think the fans love me! What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that’s it.”
Despite all the speculation, can we really keep Hazard at Stamford Bridge?
Now we all know Hazard has that dream to play for Madrid and believes that a move to the easier La Liga would given him the best option of winning the Ballon D’or, but at the end of the day, if we can win silverware on a yearly basis and add the Champions League title to the cabinet once more, then there is no need for Hazard to leave.
He can fulfil his dreams here at Stamford Bridge, so it will not be a case of how much to hand Hazard, it is a case of whether we can convince him that we are heading in the right direction once again.
Get the Chelsea word out there!
