Chelsea are reportedly planning contract talks with Eden Hazard next month – with a pay rise to £300,000 a week possible.
The winger’s current deal at Stamford Bridge is said to be worth £200,000-a-week and expires in 2020.
However, with Real Madrid pursuing a move this summer, Chelsea are looking to secure their star man’s future at the club.
Eden Hazard is happy in west London and is settled with his young family.
Express Sport understands Madrid are ready to make a £100million swoop if they receive any indication from the 26-year-old he is open to a switch to Spain.
But according to The Sun, Chelsea are willing to strengthen Hazard’s contract.
It is claimed the Blues are ready to extend the Belgium international’s deal by a further two years until 2022.
And Hazard would also earn valuable bonuses on top of the pay rise to £300,000-a-week.
That would make him the highest earner in the Premier League, with Chelsea pushing talks forward.
Discussions were apparently scheduled for the end of the campaign, but Hazard will now sit down with the club in April.
The forward is currently without an agent, making his situation more complicated, but Chelsea are confident of keeping Hazard.
