Forget Real Madrid ! Chelsea to make Hazard highest paid in Premier League history

Chelsea are ready to offer Eden Hazard a massive new deal to convince him to stay.

The Belgian's father, Thierry, yesterday claimed: "Eden has refused a contract extension to be able, if necessary, to follow interest from Real Madrid."

But the Telegraph says the Blues are yet to table a formal offer.

But the report claims they are prepared to pay him more than £300k-a-week once they reopen negotiations in 2018.

That sum would see Hazard, 26, earn about one-and-a-half times Paul Pogba's reported £200k-a-week wage, the current highest in the league.
