It seems that Laurent Blanc is not done with his Chelsea raid according to Metro and we in the Football Transfer Tavern are not shocked at all.
The mega rich club have been linked with not only a swoop for David Luiz but also with Belgian forward Eden Hazard too.
As one of our punters notes, we think the move for defender Luiz is almost a done deal but the one for Hazard is a distant dream – or so Blues fans hope.
Hazard may have come under some criticism from manager Jose Mourinho for his lack of tracking back, but Jose and all Chelsea fans know just how much Hazard gives the team when on song.
Blanc clearly knows this too, as he was asked about Hazard and claimed: “Why do I love Eden Hazard? Because he is a player who eliminates.
“We can discuss all of the systems, or a player’s individual or collective qualities.
“But a player who can eliminate three or four players any time in a game is something else.
“We don’t know what to expect with these players. They destabilise the opponent.”
Chelsea would expect huge money for Hazard and given the cash PSG have stumped up for Luiz, we can only imagine what they feel the Belgian is worth!
Chelsea fans. Do you think Blanc’s love for Hazard will lead to a crazy bid? Let us know your thoughts below.
