Eden Hazard endured a tricky period last season at Chelsea as his relationship with Jose Mourinho appeared to be on the rocks.
However, everything between the pair now seems rosy, and the Belgian forward looks set to snub interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid and sign a new long term deal worth £50 million at the Stamford Bridge outfit.
And, Chelsea fans should be very excited by this news. While the Stamford Bridge faithful are currently in awe of new signings Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, they should be just as excited by the news that Hazard is set to stay with their club for many years to come.
After all, in Fabregas and Costa, Mourinho has purchased two stars who are in the prime of their careers. Hazard, on the other hand, is just 23-years-old, and has many great years ahead of him.
In-fact, there's no reason why he can't become one of the best players on the planet in the coming years. Right now, he's not a superstar. He's certainly not on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. He's probably not even as good as Angel di Maria or Gareth Bale, but he isn't far off.
And, over the course of the next couple season, he has the potential to overtake Di Maria and Co., whilst the likes of Ronaldo and Messi will enter the twilight years of their careers.
As an attacking force, Hazard has all the attributes to become one of the top players in the game. Predominantly, Hazard is a creator of goals, but he's also a goalscorer. And over the coming years his contribution in terms of goals and assists will only escalate. His statistics since arriving at Stamford Bridge are already very good.
In his debut season at the club, he struck nine Premier League goals and followed that up with 14 strikes last term. It won't be long till he's hitting 20 season-after-season at the Bridge.
He's a fantastic athlete, quick, skilful and extremely controlled in his approach play, meaning he has all the credentials to succeed. What can go wrong?
And, with Mourinho as his manager, Hazard will improve on the weaker areas of his game. The Portuguese coach has - and is - already turning Hazard into the complete footballer. There's a reason why Mourinho sold Juan Mata to Manchester United, and it wasn't because of his technical attributes.
In the past year, Mourinho has been creating another identity at Chelsea; the 'Special One' seemingly wants players who are willing to play for the team - ready to track back and stop the opposition. And Hazard is good enough to excel in both attack and defence, and Mourinho is helping him to do just that.
Hazard, with the players around him at Stamford Bridge, just can't fail. Receiving the ball from the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic will only help him take control of football matches.
And, with the likes of Oscar, Willian and Diego Costa surrounding him in attack, the Blues will be dangerous from every angle, which will make Hazard even more impossible to stop.
This past weekend, as Chelsea beat Swansea City, Hazard appeared to be on his way to finding his best form. He may not have scored and may well have watched Diego Costa hog the headlines, but he's starting to show just how capable he is. Chelsea's new Spaniard may well be the man everyone's focussed on for now, but soon enough all eyes will be on Hazard again.
You just feel that he's about to explode, which is extremely worrying for all of Chelsea's Premier League and European rivals. Perhaps, in the future, Hazard will be crowned the World Player of the Year.
