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 winger has scored 98 goals for the English side in 300 appearances. He has claimed two Premier League titles during his time in west London, along with FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League triumphs.

Despite Blue’s struggle last season, the Belgium International featured regularly for them and managed to score 17 goals in all competitions. He was very influential against Manchester United in the final of the FA Cup as he scored the winner in the 1-0 win, helping the team to grab their 8th FA Cup title.

The 27 year old has been one of the stand out players in this year’s World Cup, scoring 3 goals and assisting 2. Though Belgium were defeated by France in the semi-finals but they defeated England in the third place play off.

The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in the past couple of  transfer windows and with Cristiano Ronaldo leaving them to join Juventus this summer, he has again been linked with a move to the La Liga giant.

However, the player has returned to training this week after post World Cup holiday and it is believed that a contract offer is on the table for him.

Chelsea’s new manager Maurizio Sarri insisted that Hazard is very happy at the club and that it would be impossible for him to leave Real Madrid at this stage.

He told reporters as quoted by Goal: “I think it’s impossible. It’s impossible because, here, the market is closed. We cannot change important players now, so I think it’s impossible.

“Hazard is with us. I have spoken with him three or four times for everything, and he never said something about the market. So I think he is very happy to stay here.

When asked about a new deal for Hazard, Sarri added: “I don’t want to discuss about contracts. It’s not my job. My job is on the pitch, to improve my players.

“My job is to try to win matches. It’s not to sign new contracts. But I have seen a player who is very happy to stay here, so I think it will be no problem, the new contract.”
