Chelsea make contract decision on Eden Hazard

Chelsea are still hopeful of committing Eden Hazard to a new long-term contract despite the reported interest from European champions Real Madrid.

The Belgium international has just 16 months remaining on his existing deal with the Blues and this has heightened the speculation regarding his club future beyond the summer.

According to Le10Sport, the Blues have planned contract discussions with Hazard in the near future and they remain optimistic that they can commit him to an extension.

Hazard has regularly flirted with the prospect of joining the European champions and this speculation has only increased despite the Blues being handed a two-window ban.

The west London side are likely to delay the embargo beyond the summer with an appeal and this puts Los Blancos in an advantageous position in luring the Belgian.

Still, the FA Cup holders are understood to have the hope of committing Hazard to the long-term, with the attacker previously suggesting that he could see out his career with the club.
