Hazard says he´ll sign Chelsea contract after Courtois

Hazard says he´ll sign Chelsea contract after Courtois

The 27-year-old has recently been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge with La Liga giants Real Madrid showing a strong interest.

The champions now trail leaders Barcelona by 16 points although they do have one game in hand.

Hazard's father, Thierry, revealed in December that his son had rejected a new contract offer from the Blues, with one offer reported to be worth €17.6million (£15.5million).

"I don't need anyone". The Chelsea goalkeeper was the first to confirm that he will agree a new deal and urged his compatriot to do the same.

A player of his calibre should perhaps have posted greater numbers during his time at Stamford Bridge, and that is one aspect of his game that separates him from the two superstars. However, he has said that he will only sign a new deal if his teammate Thibaut Courtois is also given a new deal.

Zidane insists he doesn't need new players at the Bernabeu this month.

"Yes, I think Thibaut first".

If you're looking for even more confirmation, albeit also more tenuous, here's Hazard saying that he will "never" leave Chelsea, but given the nature of this exchange and of course Hazard's generally jokey nature, I would put much more stock in the Mirror's story than this mobile phone footage.

"We'll see what happens at the end of the season". Appearing at the National Basketball Association with his worldwide teammates, Manchester City duo Kevin de Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy, as well as Chelsea colleagues Marcos Alonso, Andreas Christensen and Courtois, Hazard appeared in relaxed mood even though he is now on a run of scoring just one goal in his last nine matches.
