Chelsea gaffer Maurizio Sarri said on Friday that he is confident Eden Hazard will put pen to paper on a new deal with the Blues.
Hazard’s deal with Chelsea runs until June 2020 and speculation over his future at the club has intensified since his impressive displays for Belgium at the World Cup in Russia.
The Belgian has said he is in a quandary about whether to extend his deal or seek a “dream” move to Real Madrid, but Sarri is optimistic his star player will stay in London after Kante committed his future to Stamford Bridge until 2023 on Friday.
“I don’t know the evolution of the new contract. I think we can do (an extension),” said Sarri.
Asked if he was optimistic Hazard would commit to Chelsea, Sarri added: “I hope so.”
