Chelsea To Make Eden Hazard Premier League’s Highest-Paid Player On £300,000-A-Week

Published on:

Chelsea are set to offer Eden Hazard a staggering wage-packet to keep him at Stamford Bridge, according to reports.

The Belgian superstar displayed brilliant form last term as Chelsea won a second Premier League title in three seasons.

And Real Madrid had reignited their interest in Hazard during the summer transfer window this year as the Los Blancos desperately wanted to make him their latest Galactico signing.

But an ankle injury that Hazard picked while he was on international duty for Belgium this season had marred Real Madrid’s hopes of luring him away to Spain this summer.

And according to recent reports, Chelsea want to make sure that Hazard stays at Stamford Bridge for the long-term future by handing him a huge wage rise.

Hazard is now set to put pen to paper on a new £300,000-a-week contract, according to the Sunday Express.

And the hefty wage packet would see him taking home £80,000 a week more than his current weekly salary.

And it would make Hazard the highest-paid player in the Premier League – raking in £10,000 a week more than Man Utd’s club record signing Paul Pogba.

Hazard is due to jet off with Belgium for their World Cup qualifying fixtures against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Gibraltar.

And according to the Sunday Express, Hazard will sign the new contract when he returns to West London once the finer details of the new deal are finalised.

Hazard current contract will see him staying at Chelsea until the end of June 2020.

And his expected new deal will surely extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.
