Eden Hazard is prioritizing Belgium's World Cup run over signing an extension with Chelsea.

Hazard is under contract until 2020 and does not expect a quick resolution to his future.

“Look, I’m going to finish the season first, then play the World Cup and then I’ll leave on holiday,” Hazard said. “We’ll see what happens next. I haven’t thought about it yet; I have another two years’ contract with Chelsea. I am very happy. I just think about the end of the season and the World Cup.”

There have been suggestions Hazard will wait to see if Real Madrid will prioritize signing him this summer before committing to Chelsea. Hazard may also wait to see if Chelsea secures a spot in the Champions League next season.
