Maurizio Sarri tells £200m Hazard: Chelsea contract is there to sign!
Guest post Iomie.
Maurizio Sarri says there is a contract on the table at Chelsea for Eden Hazard to sign.
It is no secret that Hazard was heavily tipped to leave the club last summer and head over to Spanish giants Real Madrid in a deal worth around £200 million, only for the Italian to convince him to stay for another season.[the_ad id=”164″]
However, the Belgian superstar has dreams to win the Champions league and Ballon D’or titles and reportedly believes that his best chance will be in la Liga, meaning he will wait until the end of the season to decide on whether or not to sign a new contract.
But Sarri has told his star man that a new contract is there to be signed, if he wants to end his top-level playing days at Stamford Bridge.
Sarri told Sky Sports: “The club is available to sign a new contract immediately, but it’s up to him if he wants to renew or not.
“I want Eden here, of course, but I want him here if he wants to stay here.”
Will Hazard stay here at Stamford Bridge?
Hazard has made no secret of his love for the club and how hard it will be for him to depart the club if he signs for Madrid, but many in the media believe he will not stay beyond this season and will indeed sign for the Spaniards.
He has won everything there is to win in England and knows this may be his final chance to be crowned the best player in the world, something which has been dominated by Barcelona and Madrid over the seasons.
So convincing him to stay will depend on much more than just money.
