Mourinho: Hazard will ink new deal and become Chelsea LEGEND!

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed a new deal is in place with Eden Hazard.

Hazard is set to sign a new contract worth £200,000-a-week to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho said: "Eden will sign a new deal. I was never worried about it. Since the moment I met his father and everything was very clear about their intention and their happiness to stay with Chelsea.

"After that it becomes a numbers situation. When that happens, I'm more than happy to be out but my club has told me the situation will finish with a new contract.

"I was never worried about that. I think he can be one of the all-time greats. But no player can be considered a legend in the club without winning titles. He has to do that."
