    I Won’t Extend My Contract Unless You Promise Champions League Football – Hazard Warns

    Published

    on

    Chelsea play maker Eden Hazard has told Chelsea that he won’t extend his stay at Stamford bridge if they cant claw themselves back into the champions league.  he will not extend his stay with them unless they

    claw themselves back into the Champions League.

    Real Madrid had been spotted as Eden Hazard’s most likely destination, especially after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo – who left for Juventus earlier this summer.“I have to see out my contract and see what the future brings” added a smiling Hazard.

    He  had flirted with a transfer away several times but announced recently he would not be going anywhere this year.

    “For the moment, I am happy,” said Hazard. “I have two more years of contract and we will see what will happen.

    “Leave this year? I will not leave. I’m fine here, we’ll see what happens in a year or two.” And there is a contract offer waiting on the table for the 27-year-old.

    Chelsea have offered the winger £300,000-a-week on a five-year deal but as of yet there has been no inclination that this contract will be signed.

    The Champions League remains the biggest prize Hazard has yet to win at club level and is his biggest dream.

    Since his move to Stamford Bridge six years ago, it has been his major priority but as of yet, the Blues are miles off becoming potential winners.

    They finished fifth last year meaning they must ply their trade in the Europa League this season.

    And according to The Sun, Hazard will only think about signing a new deal if a return to Europe’s prestigious competition is made this year.

    The former Lille forward has two years left on his current contract, but even if he signs a new one it does not necessarily guarantee his future at the west London outfit. Chelsea travel to Newcastle United in the Premier League next weekend.

    Hazard could make his first start of the season at St James’s Park.

    He’s been named on the bench for the first two matches against Huddersfield and Arsenal. Chelsea have won both matches (3-0 and 3-2).
