Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were relieved today to hear that links between a star player of theirs and one of Europe’s biggest clubs is merely paper talks but they let out a groan when it was made clear he fancies a switch elsewhere.
Eden Hazard has been heavily linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer, who Chelsea trail 2-1 after the first-leg of the Champions League Round of 16 match-up, but The Telegraph states the Belgian international has his sights firmly fixed on a move elsewhere.
Hazard, formerly of Ligue 1 outfit Lille, has impressed in the Premier League during the past few seasons but is linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge this summer due to the Blues’ struggles to secure Champions League football for next term.
A wealth of top-sides are likely to be interested in his services but according to the reports, Hazard will only consider a move to Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid.
Our landlord believes Real will do all they can to lure Hazard to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, although he’s not sure where the Belgian international will fit into the side.
