Eden Hazard on verge of new contract, says Mourinho

Eden Hazard has been in phenomenal form for most of the season, and with his contract expiring in two and a half years it's about time for him to get a new deal from Chelsea. There've been talks about getting him signed up since the World Cup, but it's starting to drag on a little bit now and ... well I wouldn't say people are getting actively worried, but there's a patina of anxiety developing around the issue.

But Jose Mourinho says not to fret:

No problems. Soon [it will be signed] but I’m not worried because they are almost there. He’s [Hazard’s] not worried. The club knows that almost will become done. No problem.

Good. But from the outside we have no real clue what's going on, and personally I'd like soon to be now-soon rather than indeterminate-soon. In the meantime, I suppose hearing soothing things from the manager is better than not.
