Eden Hazard set to commit his future to the club.
Chelsea fans will have to worry about transfer rumours linking star winger Eden Hazard with continental giants Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain for only a little while longer if their manager Jose Mourinho is to be believed, with the Mirror reporting that the Portuguese has suggested that the Belgian international will put pen-to-paper on a new five year deal at Stamford Bridge in the near future.
Hazard has consistently been one of Chelsea’s most impressive performers since the Blues splashed out a signfificant sum to bring him to the Premier League from Ligue 1 outfit Lille, but his game has gone on to a new level since the return of Mourinho and he is now one of the Premier League’s most consistently dangerous attacking stars.
These performances have not gone unnoticed on the continent, with Real and PSG both linked with big money moves to try and lure Hazard away from Stamford Bridge before he signs an extension to his current Chelsea deal which runs out in 2017.
Mourinho doesn’t seem overly concerned by the prospect of Hazard moving on, however, and moved to reassure fans that a new deal will be concluded imminently ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Hull City at Stamford Bridge:
“It will be done soon. But I’m not worried because they are almost there.”
