Chelsea Ready To Offer Belgian Superstar New Mega Deal: Why The Blues Need To Get This Done!

Latest reports are confirming that Chelsea are interested in warding off Manchester City and Real Madrid by offering their Belgian star Eden Hazard a mega contract. The magician has been linked with a Real for long now with Manchester City joining the ranks in the latest weeks.

The Blues are now keen to hold on to their star man and are ready to offer him a weekly wage close to £300,000 to keep him at Stamford Bridge. The forward’s current deal runs until 2020 but the Blues bosses seemed to have made extending that deal a priority. They will also hope that Hazard’s deal will pave the way for them to keep his national teammate and Chelsea custodian Thibaut Courtois at the club who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid as well.

Eden Hazard has the potential to take on the best in the world and come out a winner nine times out of ten. The Belgian has could not have been named for aptly as the name of Hazard on the team sheet leaves defenders in nightmares.

His move to Chelsea back in 2012 was a topic of much debate and hype as he flirted with every major club in Europe before finally joining the then European Champions for a fee reported to be around £32 million.

In his five year spell at the club, Chelsea has seen the worst and the best of Hazard and interestingly the form of the club has reflected the form of the player, such is the importance of the winger in the team.

On the day when Hazard plays, he is on par with the best in the world and cannot be touched let alone caught on the field. He dances and dazzles his way through and weaves a wave of magic on the pitch on his way to goal leaving fans and players mesmerized. However, such days are short in number and inconsistency is perhaps the only complaint any manager can have with the player.

Although it seems that this season Hazard has almost corrected that last little piece of the jigsaw missing from his game. He has been a delight to watch in every game and has pulled the sluggish attack of Chelsea almost single-handedly throughout. If Chelsea are interested in securing a top-four place and competing for the FA Cup, they will need Hazard to continue to perform. Even for the future, if the club wants to maintain their lofty standards, it is simply unacceptable for them to let go of Hazard.
