The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager for Roman Abramovich to fund a squad overhaul this summer. The Blues have really struggled this season, and big changes will be needed if they want to stand a chance of winning the league next season.
One area that has been particularly poor this season is the attack. Antonio Conte’s forwards are misfiring, and even Eden Hazard isn’t at his best. This summer, then, bringing in a new forward makes sense.
Fortunately, one could be available in the form of Marcus Rashford, who is rated at £45 million by Transfer Markt. Though perhaps a pipedream, the Englishman – according to the Mirror – isn’t happy with his mixed involvement at Old Trafford, and so his future looks uncertain at present.
Our landlord thinks that a move to Stamford Bridge could be brilliant for Chelsea, and particularly Eden Hazard.
Hazard is one of Chelsea’s most positive players, and far too often, he’s surrounded by negativity. Pedro and Willian often look to dribble and pass sideways or backwards, and rarely do they look to drive at defences. Rashford, meanwhile, is in the same mould as Hazard. He’s always looking to break past defences and fire towards goal, and that has been reflected by his decent goalscoring record over the last few years. Having a player like Rashford in the attack would give Hazard something to work off of going forward, which would be great for the Blues. Not to mention, the arrival of a player like Rashford would put the pressure on Chelsea’s Belgian superstar, and that can only have a positive impact.
For his part, Rashford is one of the Premier League’s brightest attacking talents. Possessing brilliant pace, technique, and a brilliant shot, the attacker has looked very good down the flanks at Old Trafford. What’s more, at just 20-years-old, he’s only going to get better – making it the perfect time for Chelsea to bring him in.
Man Utd and Chelsea have done business in the past, in the form of Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic, and so seeing another major transfer isn’t outside the realms of possibility. If Chelsea were able to land him, Eden Hazard could take his game to the next level.
