The Blues are speculated to reject bids for Eden Hazard even up to £200 million from Manchester City as they are not interested in selling the star to an English club.
Manchester City is rumored to go after the Belgium International after the season ends, after bowing out of the Alexis Sanchez deal. The Etihad outlet will continue their spending spree as they are in the talks to make a record-breaking bid for the winger. The Premier League leaders are in the pursuit to make their impressive attack, invincible with the addition of Eden Hazard on the flanks.

Chelsea however, is determined to keep hold of the Belgian who has played instrumental roles for the club’s title victories in the recent past. The Blues are confident of tying down Hazard to a long-term contract to secure his future at Stamford Bridge.
The 27-year-old has apparently demanded a hike in his current wages and wants over 300,000 per week. The Belgian winger had stated his contract status during NBA London, where he mentioned Courtois as well, He said: ‘I think Thibaut (Courtois) first. Then I will sign.’
Under the worst-case scenario, Chelsea would prefer Hazard signing with Real Madrid who themselves are on the lookout for Hazard. The Los Blancos have lined up Eden Hazard, Harry Kane, and David De Gea as prime targets in the summer transfer window.
Chelsea will have to place the securing of hazard’s future with the club before time runs out. Chelsea’s reluctance to sell their star player to Manchester City is quite understandable considering the tremendous amount of success the club is having at the moment which has left the Premier League champions in the dust.
The 27-year-old has been the only glimmering hope in the attack with an impressive tally of goals and assists despite missing a brief portion of the season at the start.
