Eden Hazard has stated he is not prepared to sign a new contract at Chelsea until he sees who the club decide to bring in during the summer transfer window.

The Belgium international has been attracting unwanted interest from Real Madrid and the Blues are determined to keep him at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are trying to persuade the 27-year-old to sign a new improved deal worth around £300,000 a week, despite already having a contract until 2020.

Hazard is expected to be at Stamford Bridge next season as his family are settled in Surrey, however, he has admitted he will only commit to new terms should they match his ambitions on the field with new players.

However, he also realises that it could be the last chance that he gets a deal worth as much as it is, but revealed he is happy where he is.

That’s why I’m taking my time,” he told The Guardian.

It’s something big, so I need to think about a lot of things. But one thing is for sure: I’m happy here.

I’m waiting for new players next season. I want good players, because I want to win the Premier League next season.

Like I’ve said many times before, I think the FA Cup final is not my last game for Chelsea. It’s the last game of the season, that’s it. After the World Cup then we will be ready for the next season. But, for me in my mind, I’m here. I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game, I just want to win, for me and them also.”

The winger, who is valued at £90million by Transfermarkt, has been a key player for Chelsea since he arrived from Lille and will be disappointed with the way the campaign has gone.

Despite the poor season from the Blues, he has continued to perform at a consistent level, having contributed 16 goals this season and providing a further 13 in 51 appearances he has made across all competitions.
