EDEN HAZARD has reportedly decided to stay on at Chelsea next season.
The Belgian’s impressive displays for Chelsea this season have not gone unnoticed across Europe.
Real Madrid are eager to make a move for the talented attacker in the summer with Zinedine Zidane a long-term admirer.
But Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is also aware of Hazard’s importance and has insisted he won’t let the 26-year-old leave.
The Telegraph claim Hazard has already told close friends he’ll snub a move to the Bernabeu to be at Stamford Bridge next season.
And in order to secure Hazard’s long-term future, Conte and Chelsea are eager to reward him with a new deal.
The Belgium international is already the club’s highest earner on around £200,000 a week, plus bonuses, with his current deal running until 2020.
And despite there being no rush to agree a new deal, the west London outfit are ready to offer him fresh terms that would guarantee he remains the club’s highest-paid player.
