Eden Hazard joked about signing a new Chelsea contract at the club’s awards ceremony (Chelsea TV)Eden Hazard jokingly replied ‘where’s the pen?’ when asked by a Chelsea fan to sign a new contract at the club’s end-of-season awards night on Friday.
It was a clean sweep for the Belgian as he won Chelsea’s Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and Goal of the Season.
No player in Chelsea’s history has ever won all three awards in a single season and it could be a fitting end to Hazard’s time at Stamford Bridge with a potential move to Real Madrid on the horizon.
Chelsea fans are desperate for Hazard to stay and one supporter made his opinion heard at the club’s awards ceremony at the Royal Lancaster hotel in London.
After collecting his Player of the Year award, Hazard gave a brief interview on stage but before he could speak, one fan shouted out: ‘sign the contract’.
Hazard smiled and replied: ‘where’s the pen?’.
Someone in the crowd: [Eden] sign the contract

Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri admits he will be unable to keep Hazard if he is intent on joining Madrid this summer as Chelsea.
‘I don’t know. If Hazard is thinking that the history here is finished, then in his mind it is finished,’ said Sarri.
‘I can try to speak to him but it is not easy. It’s not easy because of course, I want Hazard, but I want Hazard with a very high level of motivation.
‘As you know you have to ask the club because I am not in control of the market.
‘I am not in charge of the renewal of the contract so I am not able to answer. I can only speak to the player but like a father, not like a manager.
‘Also if I speak to him, I will not tell you anything. It’s a discussion between a father and a son.’
