Eden Hazard to be given £200,000-a-week to reject Real Madrid interest

Published Add your comment

Chelsea are set to hand Eden Hazard a deal which will see him become the club’s top earner in a bid to fend off interest from Real Madrid.

According to the Daily Express, which utilises the fact that Jose Mourinho appeared to confirm that the future of his Belgian star was all but wrapped up, the Blues aren’t taking any chances, and want to bump Hazard’s wages up from £170,000-a-week to £200,000-a-week to reflect his position as the most influential player in the squad.

Hazard upgrade

The new tact comes following a string of transfer rumours which have left Chelsea fans fearing the worst with regards to the 23-year-old’s future. His classy performances are said to have attracted the attentions of Real Madrid, who are ever on the look out for the next Galactico to add to their books, and interest from mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain is never far away.

However, with Jose Mourinho now getting the best out of Hazard after an indifferent first season at Stamford Bridge the playmaker is in the form of his life, and he was even awarded the No.10 shirt to symbolise his importance for the west London giants.

The near future

With his current deal scheduled to expire in 2017 there’s no urgent rush to get things ironed out but for Mourinho it’s very much a case of the sooner the better. The Special One sees Hazard as a talent that can grow to become one of, if not the, best in the world, and he’ll be aware of what interest from Real Madrid in particular can do to a player’s loyalty.

Real Madrid situation

The likes of Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo were once talismanic performers at Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United respectively, before Florentino Perez’s promises led to them virtually asking to move to the Santiago Bernabeu. If Hazard is on a brand new five-year as lucrative as the one speculated then that scenario is ruled out for him, but if he still hasn’t signed by the end of the campaign it could be a different story.
