Hazard waiting for Chelsea signings before deciding on contract

Hazard waiting for Chelsea signings before deciding on contract

And those rumours have only escalated after it has been revealed that Hazard is stalling on signing a new contract, despite Chelsea being "desperate" for him to commit his future.

Eden Hazard has thrown down the gauntlet to Chelsea's owners after another disappointing season to 'spend big or he's gone'.

Hazard has reportedly been offered improved terms of £300,000-per-week, to convince him to extend his six-year association with the club and reject advances from Real Madrid.

How could Eden Hazard fit in at Real Madrid?

"I'm taking my time". I'm waiting for new players next season and we will see.

However, Herrera who is preparing to face Hazard this Saturday as Jose Mourinho's men take on Antonio Conte's side in the FA Cup final at Wembley, believes the Belgium global should still be considered the Premier League's best player. It's something big, so I need to think about a lot of things.

"I don't think it's my last game".

"I know I was on the front page the next day, but credit for Marcus, Jesse, Paul and for Fellaini, they were in front of me stopping that easy ball to Hazard".

Chelsea have endured a tough second season under Antonio Conte, finishing fifth in the Premier League and therefore missing out on a Champions League place.

"After the World Cup, then we will be ready for the next season".

"But one thing is for sure: I'm happy here". For me in my mind, I'm here, I have one week to play now. I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game, I just want to win for me and them as well.

The Belgian was also the Blues' top goalscorer in the league with 12 goals, which is not a bad feat given the west London club's below-par season.

The Belgium worldwide has until 2020 to run on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, but with the Blues out of the UEFA Champions League next season, speculation will gather pace regarding a potential transfer.

"We're Chelsea. We need trophies", Hazard said. "We will see", he told AP. So, we will give everything.

"I do not know what will happen in the future".
