Arsene Wenger takes fresh swipe at 'diver' Eden Hazard

Eden Hazard 'agrees' to join European giants – snubs Chelsea's new contract offer

Hazard's father, Thierry, revealed in December that his son had rejected a new contract offer from the Blues, with one offer reported to be worth €17.6million (£15.5million).

And Hazard, whose current contract runs until 2020, has revealed he is willing to extend his stay in Antonio Conte's side, provided Courtois pens a new deal first.

In the interview Hazard confirms that he will sign a new deal at Chelsea and commit his future to the club.

The Belgian has also admitted it would "be a dream" to play under Zidane, whom he calls an "idol".

Eden Hazard told a fan that he will "never leave Chelsea" during Thursday night's NBA London game between Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers.

Although, Hazard could be waiting some time for Courtois to re-sign because Courtois is having problems away from the club and a worry for Blues' fans is that those problems could prevent a new contract extension and could lead to a move away from England.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger reiterates that Eden Hazard went to ground too easily to win a penalty last week, but does "not blame" the Chelsea forward. 'I think Thibaut first. "Then I will sign", he added.

"Yes", said the 24-year-old who was named in the UEFA Team of the year 2017, alongside Premier League mate Kevin De Bruyne, becoming the only Belgians to feature in the illustrious Xl.

If you're looking for even more confirmation, albeit also more tenuous, here's Hazard saying that he will "never" leave Chelsea, but given the nature of this exchange and of course Hazard's generally jokey nature, I would put much more stock in the Mirror's story than this mobile phone footage.
