Eden Hazard set to become the highest paid EPL player

Eden Hazard is poised to sign a new contract worth £300,000 a week, making him the highest paid player in the Premier League.

Hazard has returned to action for Chelsea after missing the start of the season through injury.

He was in stunning form last week as Chelsea beat Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

And he was Chelsea’s most dangerous player against Manchester City on Saturday.

And now the Blues will look to tie him down for the long-haul to put interest from Real Madrid on the back burner.
