The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Eden Hazard to return to action…
The Belgian suffered an injury at the end of last season, and has been ruled out ever since. As a result, he’s missed all of Chelsea’s pre-season campaign, whilst he has also been missing for the Blues’ first few games of the season.
He’s edging towards a return now, though according to Don Balon, if he gets his way – he won’t ever turn out in blue again.
Don Balon are reporting that Hazard is ‘crazy’ about joining Real Madrid this summer, and he is even willing to attempt to force a move through in an effort to make it happen.
This report has left the Chelsea fans in the pub fearing the worst, as the Blues are in a bad situation as it is. They’ve got very little squad depth, and the prospect of losing Eden Hazard would make that situation far more difficult to navigate.
Clearly, Chelsea will be hesitant to sell the Belgian, but his reported personal interest in moving could be key – with the Blues unlikely to want to keep a player against his wishes.
With just a week to go until the window closes, the chances of this happening are very low, but Hazard’s apparent fondness of Madrid does offer Chelsea cause for concern.
It would be a disaster if Chelsea lost Eden Hazard. The Belgian is their talisman, and they have struggled without him this season.
He’s the first name on the teamsheet, and Conte would have to re-think his entire strategy if he was to be sold. Chelsea simply cannot afford to let him go, no matter what.
