Chelsea are ready to make Eden Hazard the highest paid player in the Premier League.

The Sunday Express says Hazard is set to sign a new deal at Chelsea – with the Blues keen to ward off interest from Real Madrid.

Belgian winger Hazard has been offered a £300,000-a-week contract by the nervous west London club – which would make him the Premier League’s highest paid star.

Hazard’s current agreement is worth £220,000-a-week, and ties him to Stamford Bridge until 2020.

Real have been long term suitors of Hazard, while Barcelona could also be interested as they attempt to replace Paris Saint-Germain recruit Neymar.
