The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been a fairly unhappy bunch throughout the 2015/16 campaign due to the club’s poor form, with the contingent of supporters hoping for a better time of things under new boss Antonio Conte.
The Italian will start work with the Blues in the summer and is expected to rule the roost with an iron fist mentality, with many players set to be ousted from the underachieving squad.
Our landlord has spotted an article in today’s edition of The Sun, who are reporting that Belgian forward Eden Hazard is set to be the first major casualty of Conte’s regime, with the 24-year-old set to be sold in the summer.
Hazard collected several accolade’s for his performances last season but his form has wavered this season, leading the new Chelsea boss to act.
One Chelsea fan has overheard this news whilst sipping from his bottle of beer and he thinks the Italian is right to sell Hazard, stating that his performances this season have been of a man who clearly doesn’t want to play for Chelsea Football Club.
Chelsea fans, what do you make to this news? Is the new boss right to sell Hazard? Who should replace him in the team?
