Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard must make up his mind whether he wishes to commit to Chelsea and extend his contract worth a rumoured £350 000 ($450,000) a week, the club's manager Maurizio Sarri said.

Reports emerged in Spain on Wednesday claiming Real Madrid have ramped up their efforts to tempt Hazard away from Stamford Bridge, with his contract moving into its final 18 months in the New Year.

Real will play a similar game this time around knowing full well that Chelsea run the risk of losing Hazard for nothing in the summer of 2020. But Chelsea dug in their heels and insisted he was going nowhere. The Belgium worldwide has found back of the net 10 times for both dethroned Premier League Champions and country by the start of October but the 27-year-old forward has failed to score for the Blues and World Cup third place in his last 11 matches.

"It's up to him".

This rumour has been doing the rounds for a number of months now, with the Belgium global edging worryingly closer to the end of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

"I think from a Chelsea point of view if they want to win trophies they need to keep Hazard".

The report claims that Los Blancos have agreed to pay €170m for the Belgian worldwide at the end of the season, whilst Mateo Kovacic will also be included in the deal as he makes his loan deal a permanent one at Stamford Bridge.

Their contracts are up at the end of the campaign and they are locked in a standoff over the length of the new deals being offered.
