Chelsea will be desperate to get the better of Manchester City at the Etihad tomorrow, with the race for a top four spot beginning to hot up.
The Blues were dominant last time out against Huddersfield Town as Gonzalo Higuain grabbed a brace on his Stamford Bridge league debut. But, there’s still a long way to go in the current campaign, so supporters won’t want to get too ahead of themselves as tomorrow’s test could prove to be season-defining.
Sadly, one thing that has been worrying supporters in recent times is Eden Hazard’s future with a new contract yet to be agreed, and the Belgian is reportedly (as per Goal.com) hopeful that Real Madrid will sign him in the summer.
So, with Chelsea’s star man seemingly open to departing at the end of the current campaign, perhaps the Blues should start looking at bringing in a potential replacement.
One player who could replace the 28-year-old is Thorgan Hazard, his younger brother. The 25-year-old is on the brink of becoming a world-class talent having produced an incredible 12 goals and nine assists this season.
Interestingly, the Borussia Monchengladbach attacker, who is valued at £34.2 million (by Transfermarkt), joined Chelsea from RC Lens back in 2012 and then went on to secure a move to Germany in 2015 after failing to make any inroads at Stamford Bridge, but he’s now developed into a Bundesliga star.
Indeed, the Belgian international is very similar to his brother in many ways as he looks to make use of his pace, dribbling, skill and passing in the final third. He hasn’t quite made it to the same level as his older brother just yet, but he definitely has the potential to become one of the world’s best attackers.
And, with Christian Pulisic already set to rock up at Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window, bringing Thorgan to the club would definitely ease Eden’s potential departure as both he and Pulisic are special talents.
Chelsea fans – thoughts on potentially signing Thorgan Hazard?
