Now that the Premier League season is over and the summer transfer window has opened, Eden Hazard has made his feelings very clear about the future at Chelsea.

His current deal runs out in 2020 and with interest mounting from around Europe the Blues are keen to tie their star man down to an extension.

Naturally, Hazard has his demands. A huge pay rise is on the cards but the Belgian signing a new contract all depends on what players Chelsea sign this summer.

Hazard has openly admitted that he wants to know who will be arriving at the club before he even considers putting pen to paper.

"I'm open to discover new things, but on the other hand, I am very happy at Chelsea," he told HLN earlier this week. "It's a double feeling.

"Whatever happens, I will be happy. We'll see. There's lots of speculation, but I want to know which top players the club is signing, too."

Real Madrid will once again try their luck with Hazard this summer and it's being reported that Chelsea want at least £100 million for the Belgium international.


But now another potential suitor has emerged and if Hazard completed a move it would undoubtedly go down as one of the most surprising.

According to The Sun, Manchester City have entered the race to sign Hazard and are planning a big-money transfer.

City are not only happy to pay Hazard's demands of £300,000-per-week, but Chelsea's valuation of £100 million plus wouldn't be a problem either.

And there's reason to suggest Hazard would be interested in the move. City can provide the 27-year-old Champions League football and he's also a huge fan of their style.

Back in January, Hazard lauded City for the way they play to Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus' strengths by keeping the ball on the floor.

"Who is the best team this year? Manchester City," he told the Evening Standard. "The strikers, Jesus and Aguero, are not big.

"It's simple. If you want to play with long balls you need a target man, if you want to keep the ball on the floor you need a small guy.

"It depends how you want to play. Football is simple - keep the ball on the ground and try [to play]."
