• Playmaker expected to sign new deal to stay in London • Madrid have been heavily linked with the Belgian
Antonio Conte believes Eden Hazard can satisfy his ambitions at Chelsea, despite Real Madrid's interest. The Premier League leaders will instigate talks aimed at securing the Belgium midfielder to a new long-term deal at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard, who is the club's highest paid player on around £200,000-a-week, is contracted until 2020, but is expected sign new terms before the end of the current campaign. He does not operate with an agent and is awaiting Chelsea's proposal, which is likely to increase his basic wage significantly. He is settled in London with his family and is ready to play his part when the team return to the Champions League next season.
