The £300,000-a-week contract on the table will take the 26-year-old above Manchester United's Paul Pogba in the pay stakes.

Hazard has not long come back into the Chelsea first-team after suffering a broken ankle.

He made his return in the 2-1 win over Leicester earlier this month after playing for his country in the international break.

And after helping Antonio Conte's side smash six past Qarabag and after their 4-0 win over Stoke last weekend, the club want to recognise his status as one of the world's top talents.

Real Madrid have reportedly been interested in Hazard, but Chelsea have been reluctant to entertain any talk of him leaving.

The deal will replace the £220,000-a-week contract the playmaker is currently on at Stamford Bridge.
