Eden Hazard confirms he will snub Real Madrid and sign new contract

Eden Hazard confirms he will snub Real Madrid and sign new contract

The 27-year-old Belgian was at the O2 Arena on Thursday night for an National Basketball Association game between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers, which was when he put a lot of Chelsea supporters at ease when he confirmed that he will sign a new deal once Courtois puts pen-to-paper on a new contract.

Asked by the Mirror if he will sign a new contract at Chelsea, Hazard said: "Yes".

Hazard has arguably been the Blues' best player since his arrival in the Premier League five years ago, while also establishing himself as probably the most influential player in the English top flight during the same period.

Hazard who has two years remaining on his current contract, has been a target for LaLiga champions Real Madrid. That's the aim, as long as the club keep doing that then, yeah, I'm happy here'.

The Belgian has only scored five goals in the Premier League this season as Chelsea struggle to keep pace with runaway leaders Manchester City. Every year, things were said about me but I stayed.

"What I can reveal about Eden is that he refused a contract extension". I think that we must be pleased, but he needs a bit of time to work on the physical and tactical aspects. He will say: "'If you sign, I will sign, ' and I say the same to him!" the goalkeeper told the Evening Standard earlier this month.

The 27-year-old has so far refused to sign a lucrative new deal with Chelsea despite repeated attempts to conclude talks.

Goal revealed back in December that the Blues are ready to make their goalkeeper the highest-paid player at his position in the world, while the club have also prepared a deal for their star attacker.
