The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with the fine form of Eden Hazard over the last year or so…
The 2015/16 season was a bit of a write-off for the Belgian, with his poor performances serving as a microcosm for the rest of Chelsea’s season. Out of form, out of luck and looking hopeless, Hazard and his teammates ended the season in a disappointing 10th place.
The 2016/17 season, though, saw a return to form – characterised by the sparkling performances on display from Eden Hazard. The Belgian was crucial throughout the course of the season, quickly becoming indispensable for Antonio Conte.
There has been a real air of anxiety amongst the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern over the last few hours, then, with the Belgian recently speaking to reporters (via Four Four Two) about his future. Hesitant to confirm that he will be at Chelsea next year, Hazard said: “I would consider it if Madrid made an offer…Honestly, I do not know what will happen”.
Though the Belgian did not go as far as to say that he would leave for Madrid, the very fact that he has not ruled a move out outright is certainly concerning the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern. Interestingly, this contradicts an earlier statement from Hazard, where the attacker suggested that he would be at Chelsea next season.
Our landlord doesn’t often read into speculation like this, but he has spent the last few hours warning the Chelsea fans of an impending summer saga.
