The Belgian has been stupendous for the Blues this season
Eden Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in the summer of 2012 and is one of the club’s undisputed stars. He is considered as one of the best players in the world after performing at the highest level over the past few seasons.
The Belgium International has scored 103 goals for the English side in 305 appearances. He has claimed two Premier League titles during his time in west London, along with FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League triumphs.
He had an impressive World Cup this campaign as he helped Belgium to reach the semi-finals and has made a stellar start to the new campaign.
The 27 year old has featured in all the Premier League fixtures so far this season for the Blues, scoring 5 goals and providing 2 assists. He scored an impressive hat-trick against Cardiff City and is the current leading scorer in the league alongside Aleksandr Mitrovic.
The winger was again in fine form for the London Outfit against Liverpool in the third round of Carabao Cup on Wednesday as he scored a stunning solo goal to win the match after coming on as a substitute.
The player has been heavily praised by club’s new manager Maurizio Sarri. The Italian claimed that he might be the best player in Europe and has the potential to score 40 goals this season.
But Cesc Fabregas fears Chelsea face the prospect of losing Hazard next summer, unless they can convince him to sign a new contract. The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid for a long time and the midfielder believes their interest likely to intensify more following his superb start to the new campaign.
‘It was an easy decision, especially now, because at this stage how much can Eden cost?’ Fabregas told the Evening Standard. ‘Not many teams in the world can buy Eden Hazard. He still had two years left on his contract.
‘Next year if he has one year left, that’s a different story. You don’t have as much power as a club. Eden is one of the best players in the world.
‘But having two years left, especially how the market is, it’s basically impossible to sign him up. I don’t think it was that hard from the club”.
