Reputable Italian newspaper La Gazzetta Dello Sport claims that Hazard has received a contract offer from the Blues
The salary offer is still short of the PL top earner Sanchez’ numbers
The Belgian is expected to sign the deal in the upcoming weeks
Authoritative Italian media La Gazzetta Dello Sport report that Eden Hazard has been offered a new €360k-a-week contract by The Blues.
The player is expected to put a pen on paper soon. The further details of the deal are not revealed yet – there’s no release clause information as of now.
The Italian outlet’s report confirms the recent inside news from Sky Sports, that claimed Chelsea want to tie down Eden Hazard with the new contract as soon as possible.
If the reported salary offer proves to be true, the Belgian will still fall short of United’s Alexis Sanchez on his way to be the highest-paid player in the Premier League. According to the Football Leaks, the Chilean earns around €445k-a-week at Old Trafford.
In the recent interview with beIN SPORTS Chelsea’s chairman Bruce Buck has said:
“Every Chelsea fan in London and around the world loves Eden Hazard. And he’s not only a great footballer but I think he’s a wonderful ad. And we want him to stay and we’ll do what we have to do to entice him to stay.”
Talking to Telefoot, Eden revealed how the Blues were determined to keep him at all costs in summer. He insisted he won’t come into a conflict with the club in the future:
“Chelsea were clear to me, I could not leave, I accepted it. Leaving or staying, I knew I was going to be happy. I do not regret at all. I will never clash with a club. If I leave Chelsea, I will leave on good terms.”
