Hazard delays signing new Chelsea deal as he waits for Real Madrid’s offer

05 Dec 2017

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is reportedly stalling on a new contract with the Blues in the hope that Real Madrid will make a move for him.

The Premier League champions are said to be ready to hand Hazard a pay packet of 17.6 million euros a year, taking him past Manchester United’s Paul Pogba as the highest-earning player in the English top flight.

However, a report in The Times on Tuesday claims that the Belgian international, whose current Chelsea deal runs out in 2020, is eyeing the Bernabéu.

Hazard: “It would be a dream to play for Zidane”

Last month, Hazard spoke of his admiration for Real head coach Zinedine Zidane, telling an interview with Radio Television Luxembourg: “Everybody knows the respect I have for Zidane as a player and also as a coach. He was my idol.

“I don’t know what will happen in my career in the future, but it would be a dream to play for Zidane.”
