According to reports, Chelsea star Eden Hazard has accepted the club’s offer of £300,000 a week and will stay at Stamford Bridge.
There were several reports of the Belgian going to Real Madrid during the summer. However, he eventually decided to stay at Chelsea.
Hazard has done brilliantly for Chelsea this season so far, scoring 8 goals in just 10 matches across all competitions.
The Belgium skipper said on numerous occasions that he wanted to play at Real Madrid. Not long back, he said, “Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie, it is my dream since I was a kid. We will see. I don’t want to talk about this every day. I don’t have time, but we will talk about my future soon.
It is also when you have a dream and you want to make it happen. It is like I have said a lot of times: if I leave I will be happy, I know if I stay I will be happy.”
There were plenty of speculation that Chelsea were willing to offer Hazard a lucrative contract that saw the Belgium getting paid £300,000. Apparently, Hazard has accepted the offer and will probably sign a new long-term contract in the forthcoming weeks.
If the Belgium signs this contract then he will be paid a whopping £15.8 million each year.
