Chelsea management is upbeat over the prospect of Eden Hazard signing a new deal.

The Telegraph says there’s a confidence Hazard will soon sign a new £300,000-a-week contract.

Hazard knows that Chelsea want to reaffirm his position as the club’s highest earner with a huge pay rise and there is encouragement from both sides that the forward will sign an extension to his current deal that is due to expire in 2020.

Despite interest from Real Madrid, Hazard is known to be happy at Chelsea, where he was this summer joined by his 22-year-old brother Kylian, who was signed from Hungarian club Ujpest.
