It’s surely only a matter of time now before Eden Hazard bids adieu to Stamford Bridge.
After seven years of magic, the Belgian is closing in on a “dream move” to Real Madrid (as per Marca) and would surely want to win the Europa League before setting sail for Spain.
While Hazard’s departure wouldn’t really be lambasted by fan due to the incredible service he’s given over the years, Chelsea finds themselves in an odd pickle. They may be losing one of the best players in the world and the man who orchestrated their attack, after all.
However, life must go on and as one goes, another will rise up for the Blues.
Thankfully for Maurizio Sarri, Chrisitan Pulisic’s signing was done months before the imminent FIFA ban imposed. Chelsea might not be able to sign a direct replacement to Hazard, yet the brilliant American can be their next beacon of hope. Granted, the 20-year-old hasn’t made many appearances for Borussia Dortmund this season, yet his talent cannot be doubted.
Like Hazard, Pulisic loves to move forward with the ball, wowing fans with his impressive dribbling ability. He’s creative in the final third and can whiz into the box to score some timely goals as well. The 20-year-old is no peak Hazard, but has the ingredients to become a world-beater.
After having withered the storm in Bundesliga, he’s ready to bring the magic to England. An intelligent star capable of imitating the Belgian’s brilliance, Pulisic will probably relish stepping into Eden Hazard’s shoes and act as the new leader marauding Chelsea’s attack forward.
Chelsea fans, do you think Pulisic can replicate Hazard’s brilliance? Join the discussion by commenting below…
