Chelsea still hopeful of Eden Hazard stay

Chelsea have reportedly scheduled fresh talks with Eden Hazard over a new deal amid strong interest from Real Madrid.
The Belgian forward is a long-term target for Madrid and he has admitted in the past that it is a “dream” of his to play for Los Blancos.

Real are said to have prioritised signing Hazard at the end of the season as part of a major overhaul, with president Florentino Perez prepared to spend big.

Le 10 Sport suggests that Chelsea have not give up hope of keeping their star performer in West London beyond the summer, though, even if he does not sign a contract extension just yet.

Talks between the Blues and Hazard are rumoured to be planned for this week, and there is a sense behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge that they have a chance of tying down the 28-year-old for the long term.

Hazard’s existing deal is due to expire at the end of 2019-20.
