Chelsea’s attacking play maker Eden Hazard, the most talented player within our ranks has rejected a new extended contract and if we are honest is to be expected.

There has been so much press coverage of the news within the last 24-48 hours as the players father has spoken out suggesting that the Belgian is holding out to see what happens this summer in the hope that Real Madrid confirm their intention to sign him.

Now I’ve stated that these reports are as expected but it’s been made clear throughout the last couple of season that Eden Hazard idolises Zinedine Zidane the current Real Madrid manager (I say that loosely at this stage as his team’s form and performances are nowhere near the standards they expect in addition to losing 3-0 to Barcelona at home recently) as his footballing hero.

According to various that have featured in the media for what seems like the past three years, Real Madrid have also monitored the players progress and have earmarked the outstanding talent as a future Galatico.

Now is it me or does it seem that Chelsea offer Eden Hazard a new contract every year? OK, throughout his time here not as often as that but surely in recent seasons it’s been the case.

Eden Hazard remains our highest earner at the club and rightly so as it’s clear on his day he remains the most exciting player in the Premier League. He is tied down to a Chelsea contract for the next few years and has spoken of being happy here whilst acknowledging that Real Madrid are a side he would like to play for in the future.

I see no reason to panic at this stage because of two reasons. First and foremost he remains our player until at least the end of the season. Real Madrid will not be interested in trying to get the deal done in January as the player would be cup-tied for the Champions League. Besides that, Chelsea would be foolish to even contemplate such an agreement at this stage of the season.

Secondly, with the length of his current contract taken into consideration in addition to his healthy wage packet, Chelsea if approached by Real Madrid would demand a British transfer record fee to allow him to leave which would be re-invested in another outstanding talent without question.

The most important thing to remember here is that players come and go but the Football Club always remains, no-one no matter if they are management or players should be bigger than the club and everyone has their price.

We live in hope that Zidane blows it, gets sacked and leaves Madrid then maybe, just maybe Eden Hazard will stay.
