The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are a bit taken back tonight over recent rumours… They never expected this.
Reports from the Express that surfaced recently have suggested that Chelsea superstar, Eden Hazard would be more than open to a move to Barcelona following the departure of Neymar.
The Belgian winger has been linked with a move to Barca’s bitter rivals Real Madrid all summer long but looks like he could be about to sweep the rug from underneath their feet.
Whilst it would be another big transfer making this arguably the most exciting window ever and it would be a fantastic move for Barca, Chelsea cannot let this happen.
Whether it is a new contract or promising to put the focus on the Champions League trophy, Antonio Conte needs to do whatever he can to make Hazard stay.
There is a very simple explanation for this.
He’s their best player by a country mile and that’s saying something given the quality Chelsea have within their ranks.
The little winger has a case for arguing he is the best player in the country and one of the best in world football, you can’t put a price tag on that.
Ok yes, Barcelona did but when you’re talking about the world’s best at least three or four of them play at the Nou Camp.
Chelsea have a squad of talented stars but they only have one world class superstar and he needs to stay.
Our landlord could see Chelsea’s lack of squad depth hurting them both domestically and in Europe next season, so selling their best player won’t help that no matter how much they get in return.
