A Belgian player is set to renew his contract with an English club, and the biggest treat to take him comes from Spain. Who is reporting it? An Italian outlet, of course.
Website Tutto Mercato Web often comes up with stories that have nothing to do with Italian football, and that is the case today, as they claim negotiations for Eden Hazard’s new Chelsea contract are going well.
They report there’s an optimism that a new deal could be signed in the next few weeks, and Chelsea could be more protected from the winger’s departure. The Premier League champions currently have ‘positive feelings’ about a quick renewal.
Eden Hazard’s current deal with the Blues runs until 2020, but like every other top player, he’s frequently linked to other clubs, especially Real Madrid in his case.
The Belgian international missed the start of the season due to an ankle injury, and Antonio Conte will be glad to have him back on top form. Conte will be even happier if Chelsea get a new contract and further secure the Belgian.
A Hazard renewal has been reported on and off for months, perhaps TMW just wanted to get involved.
