Chelsea set to offer Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois new contracts



Belgian duo Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois are set to be offered new deals with both players key to the West London side achievement over the past few seasons. Chelsea star Eden Hazard is arguably one of the best players in the world and the Blues have made the Belgian contract renewal a priority alongside his fellow compatriot Thibaut Courtois in other to fend away potential suitors.

The attacking midfielder missed majorly the start of the season due to an ankle injury that kept him out of the first few games of the new campaign, but the winger showed Chelsea what they have been missing with a man of the match performance against Spanish side Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitan in the Champions League and the Blues hierarchy are ready to keep hold of their superstar with a £300,000 per week wages. The Belgium international is currently the highest paid in Chelsea with a weekly wage of £200,000 per week, but an improved offer of £300,000 per week will make him the highest paid player in the Premier League.

Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois is also in the frame for a new deal with the goalkeeper having less than two years on his existing contract and he is expected to be offered a new deal amidst interest from Real Madrid in the summer. The 25-year-old is one of the best in his position and currently earns a £120,000 per week at Chelsea but the Belgian international is currently holding out for at least £200,000 per week with the hope of signing an extension to his existing contract.

Eden Hazard and Courtois deals expires in 2020 and 2019 respectively, but with both players reiterating their desires to stay with Blues, Chelsea director Marina Granoskaia will be hoping the Belgian duo put pen to paper on their existing contract.
