Chelsea Star To Become The Best Paid Player In The Premier League?
Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea are reportedly ready to offer one of their stars a new deal which could see him become the best-paid player in English football.
Click here to see who are currently the five highest earners in the Premier League, according to the Daily Express.
According to the English publication The Sun, Antonio Conte’s side is looking to offer Belgium international Eden Hazard a contract that will apparently see him earn around £300 000 (R5.39 million) a week.
The winger, who could topple Paul Pogba as the league’s highest earner, is currently on a deal reportedly worth £220 000 (R3.95 million) a week at Stamford Bridge.
The 26-year-old has not played much football this season as he has been recovering from a broken ankle, but despite the injury, there have been rumours circulating that Real Madrid have been lining up a possible bid for the player.
Hazard has made 254 appearances for the London side so far, scoring 72 goals and assisting in a further 64 more.
