Bruce Buck insists that Chelsea have not given up on persuading Eden Hazard to stay at Stamford Bridge beyond the end of his existing contract.

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has vowed to 'do whatever it takes' to keep star forward Eden Hazard out of Real Madrid's clutches.

Hazard has been at the centre of intense speculation regarding his future, having confessed last week that he 'dreams' of one day playing for the European champions.

The Belgium international is out of contract at the end of next season and, amid claims that Madrid are prepared to go all out to land him next year, he has yet to offer any indication that he is prepared to renew his terms.

Buck is optimistic that Hazard can be persuaded to stay on at Stamford Bridge for the forseeable future, however, telling beIN Sports: "Every Chelsea fan in London and around the world loves Eden Hazard, and he's not only a great footballer but I think he's a wonderful lad.

"We want him to stay and we will do what we have to do to entice him to stay."

Madrid signed Hazard's international teammate Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea during the summer transfer window.
