Chelsea star Eden Hazard has confirmed that he will commit his future to the Blues and sign a new contract.
Hazard attended NBA London on Thursday night, where the Boston Celtics beat Philadelphia 76ers 114-103 and were accompanied by Manchester City stars Kevin De Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy. The Belgian international has recently been linked with a move to Real Madrid, but confirmed he will soon put pen to paper but not before teammate Thibaut Courtois also extends.
When asked whether he will sign a new deal with the Blues, he replied, - Yes. I think Thibaut first. Then I will sign.
The 27-year-old has two years remaining on his contract, while Courtois has just one. Hazard is entering his prime and has scored nine and assisted eight this season. It is just one goal in nine games though for Hazard, with Antonio Conte hopeful of his No.10 rediscovering his scoring touch in Saturday’s clash with Leicester.
