Eden Hazard has revealed the real reason he signed a new five-and-a-half-year deal this week – he just wants to play Chelsea pal Cesar Azpilicueta.
The Stamford Bridge duo appeared on club TV channel’s Friday Night Live show last night and spoke all things Blues.
One of those things was the huge new deal for the Belgian which will see him earn £200,000 per week.
But when asked why he had signed the contract it wasn’t because of his love for the club, the fans, playing under Jose Mourinho or having the opportunity to win trophies with one of the world’s best clubs.
Instead, Hazard put pen to paper so he could keep playing with Azpilicueta – the man Chelsea players call Dave.

Obviously it’s a sarcastic response from Hazard which is sure to get a laugh from the Chelsea support.
