|Chelsea's attacking midfielder Eden Hazard looks set to complete a U-turn and stay at Stamford Bridge|
Eden Hazard has performed a U-turn and told Chelsea he wants to stay this summer. The Belgian was expected to leave Chelsea in the summer, with PSG and Real Madrid interested
After scoring his first Barclays Premier League goal this season at Bournemouth a fortnight ago, Hazard equalised against Tottenham Hotspur after coming on as a substitute on Monday night.
Not only did it save Chelsea from losing to their London rivals at home for the first time in 26 years, it dumped Tottenham out of the title race and confirmed Leicester City as champions.

It felt a foregone conclusion around Christmas that the 25-year-old would be sold at the end of the season, with Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid among those interested in the Belgium international. Yet club insiders said on Wednesday that Hazard is ‘100 per cent prepared to stay’ and that he has told Chelsea he wants to work with Antonio Conte next season.
Sources close to Hazard say he is desperate to prove himself at Chelsea again, despite the player having admitted in February that he would find it ‘hard to say no’ if PSG came calling.
