The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are fearing the worst this summer…
Eden Hazard has continually been linked with a move away from the club this summer, and whilst he recently stated (according to Claude Atcheba via Kristof Terreur) that he wishes to stay at Stamford Bridge – that has not calmed the fans in blue in the Transfer Tavern.
However, it appears as though his reported suitors – Real Madrid – ARE calm about the comments, with Don Balon reporting that they have not been put off by Hazard’s recent statements. To the contrary, in fact, Don Balon note that Los Blancos are desperate to secure a deal for the Belgian this summer, with the club seemingly desperate to get the deal done at all costs.
This has come as a pretty big blow for the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, with many in the pub desperate to see Eden Hazard stay at the club this summer. Indeed, the Belgian has been a catalyst for Chelsea so far this season – with Antonio Conte heavily reliant upon the qualities of the winger.
With reports linking Chelsea with a move for Alexis Sanchez, our landlord thinks that it is vital for Chelsea to hold on to Eden Hazard. After all, an attacking trio of Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez might just be unstoppable…
