Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had much to celebrate this season but they’ve ordered a bottle of bubbly to celebrate some exciting reports.
Premier League Player of the Year Hazard has been heavily linked to Real Madrid in recent months, as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, and it seems an exit for the Belgian from Stamford Bridge is inevitable.
Real Madrid are not keen on a deal and value the player at £58m but Chelsea hold the grumpy cards, whilst they could persuade Rodriguez to leave the Santiago Bernabeu with the offer of regular first-team football that he’s not guaranteed with the La Liga side.
With the likes of Isco, Gareth Bale, Mateo Kovacic and Toni Kroos in their ranks, James is facing a constant battle to land first-team football. Perhaps crucially, the Colombian shares the same agent with Jose Mourinho- Jorge Mendes.
Chelsea fans, would you swap Hazard for James Rodriguez? Let us know in the comments below!
