What's changed about Eden Hazard at Chelsea — Thierry Henry

After the NBA's event in London, Hazard was quoted by Daily Mirror, in which he confirms that he will be rejecting a move to the Bernabeu and signing a new deal at Chelsea.

Obviously these sorts of off the cuff interviews should taken with a grain of salt, and Hazard doesn't specify exactly when he will sign, but it should be.

"I think he divides everybody but I'm a big fan".

"First, he must sign, then I will be able to continue". Not that he essentially confirmed that Courtois will sign as well.

Asked whether he would sign a new deal at Chelsea, Hazard told the Daily Mirror: 'Yes.

And Hazard, whose current contract runs until 2020, has revealed he is willing to extend his stay in Antonio Conte's side, provided Courtois pens a new deal first.

"Yes", said the 24-year-old who was named in the UEFA Team of the year 2017, alongside Premier League mate Kevin De Bruyne, becoming the only Belgians to feature in the illustrious Xl.

The Chelsea stopper recently described Hazard as similar in value to his club as Lionel Messi is to Barcelona.

Los Blancos have, thus, been in search of a top shot stopper, with Courtois one of their targets.

The youngest Hazard brother, Ethan, is currently at Tubize, the small professional club where all of the siblings came through in Belgium.

"What I can reveal about Eden is that he refused a contract extension", he said.

He may have had huge success but Zinedine Zidane is under pressure at Real Madrid.

Courtois has also caught the eye of Spanish giants Madrid having established himself as one of the world's top goalkeepers since moving to west London from Atletico Madrid in 2014.
