Hazard reveals when he will sign a new deal

News

The Belgium international revealed he would put pen to paper on a new deal as long as Courtois does as well.

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has insisted that he is open to negotiating a new deal with the club, but will only sign a new contract after his fellow compatriot Courtois does.

Both players have been linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge, with reports suggesting that the goalkeeper would like to return back to Spain, while Hazard has been linked with Real Madrid.

However, the midfielder has cooled down some of those rumours when asked if he would sign a new deal with the club: “Yes, I think Thibaut first. Then I will sign.” Hazard said, according to Mirror.

This is certainly good news for all Chelsea fans as Hazard has been instrumental for the club for the past few years. The Belgian currently has nine goals and eight assists across all competitions this season and two years left on his agreement with the Blues.

Meanwhile Courtois has just one year and has shared on various occasions that he misses Spain and often thinks about a potential change of scenery. Yet, Courtois is not 100 % sure whether he will remain in London or not.

“It is not always easy, but I’d also seen this coming,” the goalkeeper said regarding his situation at Chelsea in a Belgian TV Show.

“I knew that [my former girlfriend] would return to Madrid, so that has its influence too. I love my children to death.

“When you miss them, you are sometimes wondering: ‘Shouldn’t I play in Spain in the next few years?’ That’s why I want to take my time to make a decision on that contract extension.”
