Amid what can only be described as an underwhelming season by their standards, things could be about to get much worse for Chelsea.
Zinedine Zidane’s return to Real Madrid has only stoked the fire when it comes to Eden Hazard’s potential move to the Santiago Bernabeu, and the Belgian could possibly be joined by one of his current team-mates in what would be a huge blow for the Blues.
The Evening Standard reports that, as well as Hazard, Real Madrid are also keen on world-class midfielder N’Golo Kante.
Unlike Hazard, though, Kante still has years to run on his current deal after extending his contract earlier on in the campaign.
That, however, should not stop the 27-year-old from at least trying to push for a move to the Bernabeu with now arguably a good time to leave the west London club from his perspective.
As harsh as it may sound with Maurizio Sarri having been at Stamford Bridge for less than a year, under the Italian, the Blues do not look to be going anywhere.
Real Madrid, of course, are not in a good moment either, though that could easily change with Zidane now at the helm and after a summer of spending.
With that in mind, if Kante wants to further his career just like Hazard, then a move to Real Madrid is probably in his best interest.
Chelsea fans, are the club about to lose both Hazard and Kante this summer? Join the discussion by commenting below.
