‘Build The Statue’ ‘New Contract Incoming’ – Fans On Social Media Hail Chelsea Star For Reaching Incredible Milestone

Chelsea attacking midfielder Eden Hazard has become only the third player to reach 50 goals and 50 assists for the club.

The Belgian international set up Jorginho’s winning goal against Fulham on Sunday in order to reach the milestone:

Fans on Twitter congratulated Hazard on his achievement:

For some supporters, his status as a legendary figure at the club will depend on whether he signs a new contract to remain at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard has recently stated that he has made a decision on his future but hasn’t revealed whether that means he will be staying or leaving.

The 28-year-old’s current deal expires in 2020, meaning he will only have twelve months remaining next summer.

However, the club’s transfer ban may complicate matters. Chelsea can sell players during the ban but they won’t be able to replace them.

Whether that means Hazard would stay, even if he doesn’t sign a new contract, it isn’t known.
