The reason behind Eden Hazard's refusal to sign Chelsea's £300k contract offer before the end of this season has been tied to his representatives' opinions.

After returning from an ankle injury that had him sidelined for the first few games of the campaign, Hazard who is the hottest property in the Premier League this season has helped drive his club back to the top after a rocky start.

The Belgian has eight goals in 13 starts and the Blues are now up to third in the league and have qualified for the first knockout round of the Champions League.

According to The Times, the London club have offered Hazard £300,000-a-week to sign up for the long-term and become the highest paid player in Chelsea's history. However, the player is refusing to sign as his representatives reportedly want to hold off any deals until the end of the season.

That's because they're hoping that his current contract situation will attract interest from Real Madrid who have been loosely linked with Hazard for a while now, but no bid has ever been made, although that could change next year.

With an eye for the future, Chelsea are desperate to tie their star man down to a new contract as they believe he's likely to one day become the world's best player and win the Ballon d'Or.
