Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has revealed that he will sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge if they make statement signings this summer.
The Belgium international has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge with Real Madrid strongly interested in the forward’s signature.
The 27-year-old, who has verbally agreed to terms on a long-term contract with the Blues, has two years left on his current deal.
The former Lille star’s new contract would make him the highest paid player in Chelsea’s history. However, the forward has conceded that he will wait for the club to bring in new faces this season.
Asked about progress over a new deal, Hazard told reporters: “I’m waiting for new players next season. We’ll see.”
“I want good players because I want to win the Premier League next season.”
“Yeah, [I have to think about] a lot of things, and then we will see. That’s why I’m taking my time. It’s something big.”
Chelsea still have chances to win a silverware as they will take on Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday 19 in the FA Cup final.
“I need two more trophies: Champions League and FA Cup. I think, to play Champions League next season is important. To win trophies also,” Hazard added.
“Trophies are important. FA Cup, League Cup, Premier League, Champions League. You know? And it’s more important for me because I’ve never won this one. That’s why I want to win.”
