Chelsea Football Club are prioritising the contract renewal of Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard to tie them down to at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future.
Eden Hazard is already Chelsea’s highest paid player with a £200,000-per-week contract, but his new deal could take him to earn as much £300,000-per-week plus bonuses.
Here’s what Goal reports on the matter:
“Chelsea are prioritising Hazard but they are mindful that Courtois is also due a new deal with only 21 months left on his current contract. The goalkeeper is aware that negotiations with Hazard are taking precedent but he hopes to follow and to get around double his current salary.
“Courtois is currently on £120,000-per-week but he wants increase his earnings to £200,000-per-week, in keeping with his status as one of the world’s best in his position.
“Courtois has previously shown his commitment to renew his contract in the media, even amid Real Madrid’s interest over the summer. His deal expires in 2019 but Hazard’s has an extra year on it and runs until 2020.”
Hazard and Courtois are both currently away with the Belgium national team and they will face Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.
Cesc Fabregas admits throwing Pizza at Sir Alex Ferguson
Everyone knows about the “Battle of the Buffet”. If you don’t, it was a feisty football game between Arsenal and Manchester United in 2004 while Cesc Fabregas’ was still at Arsenal.
Arsenal had been looking to make it 50 league games in a row unbeaten, but a Wayne Rooney dive and a nightmare refereeing performance from Mike Riley put an end to those dreams. The Gunners were furious and there was a fight in the tunnel after the game.
Whilst the fight was going on, someone threw a slice of pizza at Sir Alex Ferguson, which hit him in the face, and on TV show ‘A League Of Their Own’ the Spaniard finally confirmed it was him.
After admitting to throwing the pizza, Fabregas then clarified a few details: “Keown is a liar because I saw him in front of me just, like, punching people so he didn’t see anything. All of a sudden, I heard noises and I thought what’s happening?” reports the Metro.
“So I go out with my slice of pizza and I saw Sol Campbell, Rio Ferdinand, Martin Keown… everyone pushing each other. I was like I want to get in but I don’t know how to and I threw… peeew… just threw it. Once I saw it was hitting, like, who it was hitting, which I didn’t mean. I apologise Sir Alex, really didn’t mean to do that”
