Chelsea are keen to meet whatever requirements in a bid to convince Eden Hazard to remain at the west London outfit, and avoid losing him in the summer.
Hazard has steered Chelsea to many victories this season despite stunning loses to Tottenham, and recently, Wolves.
Talks are still in the pipeline, and the Blues have haggled a price fee and are ready to hand him the offer should he chose to stay in Stamford Bridge.
Offers from Real Madrid arrived in the summer, but the playmaker rejected a move after Chelsea managed to talk him out of it.
Hazard will not march out the Chelsea’s exit door in January, but has not ruled out a possibility of joining Los Blancos in the summer.
Chelsea want to grab more trophies in the coming year and Dennis Rise, Blues legend thinks if the club have already hit the pedal to the metal, then they must find a way to keep Hazard at the outfit.
There’s no doubt Chelsea fans still want to see the 27-year-old in a blue shirt, but it is important they prove that keeping him will be worth it in the long run.
The Blues were knocked out of the Champions League qualification spot last term when they found themselves outside the top four.
‘I think from a Chelsea point of view if they want to win trophies they need to keep Hazard. It’s very important because he’s such a quality player. ‘Every Chelsea fan would love to keep him and hopefully we can tie him up for longer. ‘But the important thing from Hazard’s point of view is what other personnel comes in at Chelsea Football Club and whether they can get back into the Champions League. ‘He wants to play Champions League football – he hasn’t this year – but if they can get that spot for next year and add a couple of top quality players then it can [help] change his mind. ‘He’d know then that the club can compete because at this moment Manchester City and Liverpool are in front.’
If they can get that spot next year, says Rise, and add a couple of top quality players in their ranks, the club could finally thwart the Belgian’s move to Spain.
