Hazard offered record deal to stay at Chelsea

Hazard offered record deal to stay at Chelsea

Real Madrid now have a deal in place with Eden Hazard as they bid to sign the Belgian from Chelsea next summer, according to a report on Spanish radio.

Chelsea have a dismal recent record against City, having lost their last three encounters, if you include the summer's Community Shield.

In the meantime, Chelsea are working on a new deal for the Belgian something coach Maurizio Sarri alluded to when asked about Hazard's situation earlier this week. Former Arsenal defender told Metro: "When Eden Hazard is on it, I do not believe there is a defender in world football who could live with him".

The Blues boss now hopes for a successful outcome in those dealings, provided that Hazard wants to stay at Stamford Bridge. "I know very well there are discussions between the club and the manager of Eden every week, so if there is something new, the club will call me immediately". It's very important because he's such a quality player.

"The club is willing to sign a new contract immediately, but it's up to him if he wants to renew or not".

Real Madrid prefers the part of the amount to pay the expense of inclusion in the deal of the midfielder of the national team of Croatia MATEO Kovacic, who now plays for Chelsea on loan. Now on loan in West London from Los Blancos, Kovacic doesn't want to return to the Bernabéu when his temporary Chelsea deal ends in the summer, and the six-time English champions would like the Croatian midfielder to stay on.

But apart from Hazard, Sarri also risks losing veterans David Luiz and Cesc Fabregas.
