Chelsea star Eden Hazard torn over new contract offer

Chelsea star Eden Hazard says he is torn between signing a new contract at Stamford Bridge or leaving.

The little Belgian superstar has started the new Premier League season in stunning form and already has eight goals to his name under Maurizio Sarri, who is seemingly getting the very best out of star man Hazard.

It comes just a few months after reports emerged which suggested he was ready to join Real Madrid, who were seeking an immediate replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo and were reportedly ready to splash £170 million to acquire the Belgians services.

However, he does not want to go down the same road as Thibaut Courtois, who fell out with Chelsea as he pushed through a move to Real Madrid, and is undecided about signing a new contract or pushing through one more big move.

“I don’t want that,” Hazard said.

“I want what’s good for me, but I want what’s good for the club because the club has given me everything.

“I don’t want to say: ‘Yes, I am signing a new contract’ and then in the end I don’t end up signing. So I will see. Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January.”

“That’s why I spoke after the World Cup and I said that I think it is time to change because I played a great World Cup,” he added.

“I am really in the game, I am playing good football at the moment. Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club. We will see. I don’t want to talk about this every day. I don’t have time but we will talk about my future soon. I think so.”
