Chelsea are prepared to make Eden Hazard the Premier League’s best-paid player with a £300,000-a-week contract, according to reports in England.

The Sun is reporting that the Premier League champions are getting ready to hand the Belgium international a new deal that would eclipse Paul Pogba’s current salary at Manchester United.

The same article states that the Blues are determined to dissaude Hazard from contemplating a move to Real Madrid amid regular reports linking los Blancos with a move for the Chelsea number 10.

Hazard’s new deal would be a significant pay increase on his current contract reported to be worth around £200,000-a-week that the attacker signed in 2015.

The 26-year-old made his return to first-team action earlier this month after the Chelsea playmaker suffered a broken ankle on international duty at the end of the 2016-17 season.

The Blues forward scored 13 times and made seven assists in the Premier League last term to help Antonio Conte get his hands on the title in his first season in charge.

Hazard was named the PFA player of the year in 2015 after the Chelsea forward scored 14 times in 38 appearances in the west London side’s title-winning campaign in 2014-15.

Chelsea signed six players in the summer transfer window.
