Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are worried about the prospect of losing their star man, as the summer holds the key for many Blues supporters.
Indeed, Antonio Conte’s future is hanging in the balance at Stamford Bridge after all the controversy over the past couple of weeks, as our local residents believe that they’ll be without the Italian in the summer. But, one thing that’s looking to be secured by the club is a future for their star man, as according to reports in the Mail Online, Chelsea have opened contract renewal talks with Eden Hazard.
The Blues are pressing to convince Hazard to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge, and have made renewal of the Belgian’s terms a priority as they look to revamp their squad in the summer.
Indeed, it’s Real Madrid that are after another one of Chelsea’s stars after submitting an interest in Thibaut Courtois, as Eden Hazard has become a top-target for Los Blancos this summer. But, it’s unlikely that the London club will decide to let the magician leave the English capital in the summer, with the team’s current foundations being built around the attacker.
The 27-year-old’s current contract runs out in 2020, with him valued at over £200 million by the Blues and his new contract will reflect that with a salary expected to be around £300,000 a week plus bonuses. Although, it’s understood that the Belgian is waiting to see what Real Madrid offer, after previously telling Chelsea he was happy at the club.
Eden Hazard is the one player that Chelsea should do everything in their power to keep, as one of the world’s best attacking midfielders. Although, a trip to the Spanish capital could be a too bigger opportunity to turn down for the Belgian, especially after witnessing multiple disasters so far this season.
