Courtois Believes World Cup Performance Merits Improved Contract

Eden Hazard

Both Hazard and Courtois were linked to moves with Real Madrid this summer, the former being eyed as a possible replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Italian giants Juventus last week.

After an impressive World Cup campaign with Belgium, the 27-year-old's future at Stamford Bridge remains uncertain ahead of the new season.

Hazard scored three goals for his country at the World Cup in Russian Federation - including the second in the 2-0 win over England in the third/fourth place play-off - and contributed two assists to help Belgium achieve their best ever finish at the tournament.

Hazard told reporters: "After six wonderful years at Chelsea it might be time to discover something different".

Treasury Parliamentary Private Secretary Scott Mann has handed his resignation in protest over the so-called "Chequers Deal". On July 12, the government published its long-anticipated White Paper on the UK's post-Brexit relations with the EU.

"You know my preferred destination".

Hazard himself fuelled the speculation recently when he suggested he could leave the Blues in this window.

"Chelsea considering re-signing Petr Cech if/when they sell Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid".

Chelsea are therefore willing to cash in on the 26-year-old rather than lose him on a free transfer next summer, and Spanish publication Marca reports that Madrid are already in advanced talks for the Belgium worldwide.

The report claimed that a deal could reportedly be announced in the coming days, with the two clubs believed to have agreed a fee of around £31million.
