The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern have not enjoyed the best of times since the season kicked off in August, with their hopes of silverware extinguished completely following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Everton in the FA Cup.
One man who has come in for criticism is Eden Hazard with supporters unhappy that he has been unable to continue his sparkling form of last season.
Our landlord has spotted some news in The Sun that suggests the Belgian could be on his way to Real Madrid in the summer with Colombian superstar James Rodriguez coming in the other direction.
The Spanish giants look set to offload the man they signed for £70 million after a poor season and the 24-year-old could be on his way to Stamford Bridge this summer.
One Chelsea fan is sat chatting with his mates and he thinks this is great news, believing that Rodriguez will be desperate to get his career kick started, whilst Hazard is of no use whatsoever at present.
Chelsea fans, would you welcome this staggering swap deal? Is Rodriguez a better player than Hazard? Who has the brighter future ahead?
