Chelsea ready to splash out some serious money to ward off threats

League champions Chelsea have begun plans to keep the players that helped claim the league title as well as add new stars that would help them retain their league crown and challenge for other trophies next season.

One player, they are very eager to keep at Stamford Bridge is Eden Hazard. The Belgian is one of the most important players in Chelsea right now and has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane recommended the attacker to Real Madrid when he was still playing in the French League, but they did not accept his recommendation and the player joined Chelsea instead. He has since helped Chelsea to win several trophies.

Zidane is now set to finally get his man. Chelsea is aware that playing for Real Madrid is a very tempting prospect, and are ready to fight to keep the Belgian. They have reportedly planned a deal worth around €355,000 per week for the Belgian, which amounts to €17 million per season. © 2017 Frontier Theme
