‘No sign’ of new Hazard deal

Eden Hazard has told Sky Sports there have been no discussions about a new contract at Chelsea.

Amid speculation linking the Belgian with a summer move to Real Madrid, there have been reports that the Blues are looking to tie him to a new deal.

But Hazard said: “There is no sign of a new contract for the moment. I am focused on the last month (of the season), and we will talk later.

“It’s not in my mind now. I have two or three years left. I just want to finish the season well and we will see afterwards.”

Chelsea face Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening knowing that a win would take them seven points clear of Tottenham at the top of the Premier League.

That would put added pressure on second-placed Spurs ahead of their game against Crystal Palace 24 hours later.

It would also take Chelsea a step closer to a potential league and cup double, with Antonio Conte’s side having reached the FA Cup final with a thrilling victory over Tottenham in Saturday’s semi-final at Wembley.

“We beat Tottenham and we play before them, so perhaps we can create a bit of trouble in their minds,” Hazard said.

“They are strong and we are strong, so it will be a good fight until the end.”
