As per the Express, Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard is to become the Premier League’s highest-earning player on £300,000-per-week when signing a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian No.10 has been tipped to join Real Madrid in the past, most recently seeing his name linked with the La Liga and European champions during the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old Hazard is in line for a new deal at the West London club to end any lingering doubts over his future, though, with The Express suggesting that only minor details are now left to agree.
Chelsea chiefs are understood to be willing to add an extra £80,000 to the current weeky wage of the former Lille star, seeing him overtake Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba as the division’s highest earner.
Meanwhile, Schalke highly-rated midfielder Leon Goretzka is attracting transfer interest from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool as the youngster prepares to be a free agent next summer.
The 22-year-old star has not signed a new contract deal with his current club and will be free to walk away for nothing at the end of the campaign, with a number of European top clubs showing an interest in his services.
Bayern Munich and Barcelona are understood to be the two main contenders for the Germany international at present, though the midfielder could also have offers to move to the Premier League.
