Belgium international Eden Hazard has dismissed the possibility of leaving Chelsea during this summer’s transfer window. The attacker is unlikely to switch clubs for the next two years at the least.
According to The London Evening Standard, the 26-year-old is likely to be rewarded with a fresh £300,000 a week contract following yet another impressive season in the Blues shirt.
Hazard bagged 16 goals and six assists during the recently concluded league campaign as the west London lifted their second Premier League title in three seasons.
It had been suggested that Real Madrid could plot a world-record £100m bid to lure him to Real Madrid, but the Chelsea Player of the Year has put cold water to the ongoing speculation.
“I’m good here,” he is quoted as saying in The Strait Times. “I’m at one of the best clubs in the world and I think I’m gonna stay for a couple of years. I’m very happy. You can see on the pitch that I’m happy.
The former Lille man was an ever-present figure in the Blues’ title run, and he will be hoping to produce a better performance next term with the Champions League coming along.
Hazard also admitted that he would welcome new recruits to the squad as it is essential towards achieving success in the long run under Antonio Conte.
He added: “We won the league and if we want to achieve more, we have to improve and work more. And if we bring in some new players, why not?”
