Jose Mourinho confident that Eden Hazard’s future does not hang in the balance.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has had some reassuring comments for the club’s supporters ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash against Hull City at Stamford Bridge, with the Mirror reporting that Mourinho has suggested that star winger Eden Hazard will sign a new five year contract with the club “soon”.
Hazard has been one of Chelsea’s most consistently excellent players in the last couple of seasons, with his game going up another level since the return of Mourinho to the club, and these fine displays have attracted the attention of continental giants Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain.
Despite the fact that no extension on his deal, which is set to run out in 2017, has been signed to date, however, Mourinho is confident that Hazard’s future will be secured sooner rather than later:
“It will be done soon. But I’m not worried because they are almost there.”
