Chelsea are in talks with star man Eden Hazard over a new contract and boss Maurizio Sarri wants full commitment from the Belgian, the Telegraph reports.
The Italian has revealed that a new deal has been offered to Hazard but that he has told the player he only wants him to stay if he is fully committed to the club.
The 27-year-old’s current deal at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer of 2020, and Real Madrid are long-term admirers of the Belgian.
Sarri spoke of the possibility of the club tying Hazard down to a new deal:
You know very well that Eden is very important for us, like every special player.
It’s up to him. I think the club is available to sign a new contract immediately, but it’s up to him if he wants to renew or not. I don’t know.
I want Eden here, of course, but I want him here if he wants to stay here. I know very well that there are discussions between the club and the manager of Eden every week, so if there is something new, the club will call me immediately.
Hazard has been in fine form once again this season, having already hit the back of the net for the Blues on eight occassions.
