New Delhi: Chelsea star Eden Hazard is on the verge of is signing a new five-year contract with London giants Chelsea worth a staggering £200,000 a week.

The Chelsea forward looks to commit his future to the Blues after French champions Paris St Germain were interested to get the Belgian. Talks with the Chelsea forward’s lawyer are at an advanced stage and the club are hoping to conclude negotiations with Hazard within the next few weeks.

Hazard’s extended deal, which will be worth around £10million to the forward over the next five seasons. The Belgian international has become one of Chelsea’s most influential players and his performances reflect his growing status at the club.

The Chelsea forward, who was named the club’s player of the year at the end of last season, was given the No.10 shirt vacated by Manchester United's Juan Mata, at the start of the new campaign.

Hazard joined Chelsea two years ago from Lille in a deal worth £32m and has since then become one of the most important players at Stamford Bridge.

New signings Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa have made the work easier for Hazard, and the trio have become central figures for Jose Mourinho's men this season.

Fellow Belgian Thibaut Courtois, who has replaced Petr Cech as the club’s first choice keeper, had signed a new five year contact last week.

Chelsea are top of the Barclays Premier League after a stunning start to the season which saw them register four wins out of four matches so far. They face Schalke at home in the UEFA Champions League match-day one encounter on Wednesday before taking on Manchester City in a crucial EPL encounter next week.
