"I have made a decision", Hazard told the French radio station RMC, although he did not elaborate.

Sources told ESPN FC earlier this season that Chelsea were prepared to offer Hazard a contract worth in excess of the £290,000-a-week that N'Golo Kante committed to if he agreed to spurn interest from Madrid and sign a long-term extension.

Eden Hazard will inform Chelsea soon of his future plans.

He says he only wants to return to Australia, where he has lived since 2014 and plays for a Melbourne football club. Hakeem al-Araibi denied the allegations and said he was tortured by his captors during his detention.


Chelsea made a deal to sign United States Men's National Team and Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic for $73.8 million in the summer.

Chelsea could turn to Everton winger Richarlison in the summer should Eden Hazard leave the club in order to join Real Madrid, according to the Daily Mail. "I have decided", said the 28-year-old Belgian worldwide. Is it a heartless tease from the social media team to get some interaction on their Instagram page, or has Hazard actually chose to sign a new contract with Chelsea?

While the Blues are willing to splash the money - a new deal worth more than £300,000-a-week that has always been on the negotiation table - to keep the 28-year-old at Stamford Bridge beyond his current contract that runs until the end of the 2019-2020 season, Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has recently stated the decision to leave Stamford Bridge would be for Hazard to make.

Hazard is said to have been left in limbo and may have to wait until deep into the summer before Madrid make their move, depending on whether PSG's stance alters.

In Hazard's case, we remain hopeful that he extends his contract - and will do until the day we see him holding the Real Madrid shirt.
