Chelsea have been advised to pay £750,000-a-week to Eden Hazard so as to fend off interest from Spanish Giants Real Madrid.
This is coming from the club’s former defender, Jason Cundy, who believes the 27-year-old has been in fine form this season. Hazard has scored seven goals in his first eight Premier League appearances.
There have been speculations linking the Belgian to a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.
However, Cundy believes that the club should make him the highest-paid player in world football.
“I think it’s a very open and a very honest statement.
“If they come in with a big enough offer, I think we have to accept that there is a time and a place in a player’s career and he wants to go on and play for one of the biggest clubs, if not THE biggest club, in world football.
“But, from my point of view, I want him to stay – of course I do. I would make him the highest paid player in the world.
“I would give him £650k, £700k, £750k-a-week. What’s he worth on the open market, say £150million? You’re not going to be able to replace him!” Cundy told talkSPORT.
