Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard will sign a new mega five-year contract with the current Premier League leaders within the next month.
He will become the highest paid Chelsea player ever with a reported weekly earning of £200,000. Hazard's current contract with Chelsea does not expire until 2017 but the London club are ready to secure the services of one of the best young talents at least for the next five years.
Hazard was Chelsea's star performer last season bagging 14 goals in the Premier League as well as receiving the Club's Player of the Year Award. Manager Jose Mourinho had criticised the forward last season regarding his defensive abilities after the Champions League semi-final loss to Atletico Madrid. However, Mourinho was full of praises for the young forward this season.
He said: “He means a lot because he’s a fantastic player. We are feeling day by day his motivation to work hard and improve. We have big hopes that he will go from the top player he is at this moment and will reach higher levels to become one of the best."
“He is a player who we want to keep, in spite of the fact he has a long-term contract as young as he is. It’s true Chelsea are trying to have an agreement over a new contract, and that he wants to stay and commit for a few more years. It’s a question of time. One more month, one less month, and he’ll have a new contract.”
This new contract would ward off interest from Paris Saint Germain as well as Real Madrid who have been interested in signing one of the best talents in football. The fact that his weekly wage would more than double shows how important of a player he is for Chelsea as well as how highly regarded he is by both the club and its fans.
