Eden Hazard Signs New 5.5 Year Deal With Chelsea FC

It’s been a long time coming (though not as long as it has been since my last post regarding Chelsea) and nothing that we should have been worried about, if our beloved manager Jose Mourinho is to be taken at his word, but at last our young superstar Eden Hazard has finally put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him at Chelsea until 2020.

I was elated when I heard the news earlier today. Even with the addition of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas this season, I still feel that Hazard is our most key player. He is arguably the best player in the premier league, even if his goal-scoring stats aren’t as prolific as others. You hear other players commending Hazard as the best player they have played against and I think it means a lot more hearing it from other players than reading a stats table.

Since joining Chelsea in 2012 he has matured his game quite a bit, and I look forward to watching his progression continue for many years to come and hope that one day he will lift the Ballon d’Or while still in a Chelsea shirt. Speaking of which, now I can get Hazard 10 jerseys for the family. :)

John Terry Signs Contract Extension For 2014/15 Season

For those who don’t know, since living in London a few years ago I’ve taken a rather fervent interest in football (soccer in the US) particularly in Chelsea FC as Stamford Bridge was located down the street. Therefore, expect some Chelsea related posts in the future. On that note…

Chelsea announced today that captain John Terry will be sticking around for another season as he’s signed a one-year contract extension through the 2014/15 season. The terms of the extension are undisclosed but there have been rumors of Terry needing to accept a reduced salary to continue on for another season. This upcoming season will mark Terry’s 17th with the first team, and 20th with Chelsea Football Club overall. He’s currently the fourth highest appearance maker at 621 games and that figure will only rise next year, especially if he’s able to maintain the scintillating form and center back partnership with Gary Cahill.
