The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are thankful for the international break.
Indeed, the Blues in the bar hope the lack of Premier League action can help Antonio Conte’s men to put their rather dismal performance against Manchester City behind them, as they look to keep up with the early title pace-setters.
With that in mind, reports from Goal have gone down a storm today. They claim top brass at Stamford Bridge are keen on offering BOTH Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois lucrative new deals in order to fend off any potential interest in the pair.
Marina Granovskaia is believed to be in control of securing the deals, with Hazard reportedly taking priority over his compatriot, though the ‘keeper is thought to be aware of the former’s negotiations and will apparently look for a rather large raise.
Chelsea are understood to think the pair are key to any prolonged success at the top and, as you can imagine, our west London locals are delighted about these reports.
Getting both tied down for the long-term is hugely important. Losing either to another super club would be a nightmare, especially to another Premier League side.
Hopefully for Chelsea fans, Granovskaia can pull one out the bag.
