Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are looking forward to the summer transfer window, as this may help them mount a title challenge next season.
Antonio Conte has had a rather stressful season as he failed to secure Champions League football, which is a huge blow for a big club like Chelsea. So, a number of changes will need to be made this summer as they cannot afford to make the same mistake, with many of our local residents expecting a title challenge next season.
However, it looks as if Chelsea may lose arguably their best player this summer, as Manchester City are reportedly set to make a sensational swoop for Eden Hazard.
Of course, this would be a huge blow for Chelsea as the Belgian has established himself as one of the world’s best in recent years, so a move away could spell trouble if they don’t manage to find a suitable replacement.
Therefore, Chelsea need to land this star if Man City get their man…
Gareth Bale has achieved major success since moving to Real Madrid back in 2013, but he has been plagued by a number of injuries and has struggled for fitness too regularly over the past few seasons.
The Welshman is valued at £63 million (by Transfermarkt), having established himself as one of the world’s best attackers. And, with Eden Hazard possibly departing this summer, perhaps bringing Bale to Stamford Bridge would be a better option as he still managed to score 18 times and assisted eight.
However, moving for the 28-year-old may invite even more interest from Real Madrid for Eden Hazard this summer, as the Spanish giants have been linked with a move for him in recent times.
