Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has revealed that he will soon undergo negotiations over a new contract that will keep him at the club beyond his current deal that ends in 2020.
The Belgian international has been frequently linked with a move to Real Madrid throughout the season, but following a title-winning campaign and a highly successful season on a personal level, Hazard has admitted that he is keen to stay at Stamford Bridge.
He told Het Nieuwsblad (via the Sun): “At this moment, there’s nothing on the table. We’re waiting for the end of the season.
“I’m still calm. We will talk. If not, then we’ll see. I don’t know, I’m happy at the club.
“When I’m back from the national team, we’ll have time to talk and see what’s possible.”
The 26-year-old also joked that his new contract deal could hinder the chances of the Blues re-signing Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian striker left Chelsea for Everton in a £28m deal in 2014, but it is thought that Antonio Conte is keen to bring him back to the club – Lukaku finished runner up in the race for the Golden Boot this season on 26 goals.
Hazard added: “If I sign a new contract, There may not be enough money left to get Romelu!
“No, I’m kidding. Whoever comes, we will be ready for the new season.”
Hazard made 36 Premier League appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring 16 goals and creating five in terms of assists – he was also named in the PFA team of the year to cap off a fantastic campaign.
