Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has claimed he has never been worried about Eden Hazard's future at Stamford Bridge, confirming recent reports claiming the Belgium international is expected to sign a new contract with the Blues very soon.

The west London club signed Hazard in summer 2012, paying Lille around £32m after he garnered a reputation as one of the world's most prolific young players.

Hazard has since developed into one of the best players in the Premier League, attracting the attention of a number of clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

However, according to Mourinho, the Chelsea star is set to snub any suitors by committing his future to the club.

Recent reports claimed Hazard was very close to signing a new five-year contract worth £200,000 per week.

When questioned during the press conference ahead of the game against Stoke City on Monday 22 December whether Hazard will sign a new contract, Mourinho said: "He will. I have never been worried about it since I met his father.

"Everything was very clear about his intentions and his happiness to stay with Chelsea. After that it becomes a numbers situation, which I'm more than happy to be out of. My club have always told me the situation will finish with a new contract."

Asked whether Hazard can develop into a club legend, Mourinho said: "I think he can become one of Chelsea's all-time greats but he has to win titles.

"He needs to win titles. I don´t know players consider [themselves] legends with a club without winning titles. So he has to do that. And he has the potential to do that as everybody knows."

Recently, Hazard tried to play downs rumours regarding a future move to Real Madrid or PSG, claiming he was likely to stay at Stamford Bridge.

"Chelsea was my first choice when I left Lille.Today I know it was the right decision for me. I am very happy at Chelsea," he said.

"Is there a club that makes me dream? Yes, Chelsea. They are the only club that makes me dream."
