The Belgian midfielder is performing at his top level week-in-week-out for Chelsea, and he is incredibly important to the current regime.
Mourinho is more than aware of his importance, and in a club that contains proven quality in every position Hazard is arguably the talisman.
So it’s exceptionally good news that according to reports, the 23-year-old is on the verge of signing a new deal. It is however going to be an extremely pricy contract but what’s money worth with Abramovich at the helm.
The discussion over the £200,000-a-week contract has been gathering pace and Eden is set to become the club’s top earner very soon.
