With just 18 months left to run in Hazard's current deal with the west London side, Chelsea have swiftly offered the Belgian forward a new contract that reportedly would make him the club's best-paid player.
The report also added that Chelsea will not allow the Belgium global to leave Stamford Bridge cheaply as they want massive 170m euros.
Former Chelsea superstar Dennis Wise has given a set of his advice to Chelsea that could convince Eden Hazard to stay at the Stamford Bridge.
Maurizio Sarri has been keen to tie his star player down to a new long-term contract, but admits the decision rests with Hazard.
Chelsea have a dismal recent record against City, having lost their last three encounters, if you include the summer's Community Shield.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Barcelona have been exploring the possibility of getting Hazard on-board and also tempt him with the opportunity of him playing in the Champions League next year.
However, Wise believes the club must prove their ambition to Hazard, first by qualifying for the Champions League and second by signing "quality" players.
"It's very important to keep him", said the ex-Blues favourite.
"The club is available to sign a new contract immediately but it's up to him if he wants to renew". He's important for this club. The Belgium worldwide has found back of the net 10 times for both dethroned Premier League Champions and country by the start of October but the 27-year-old forward has failed to score for the Blues and World Cup third place in his last 11 matches.
