Concerning links for Chelsea fans with key star reportedly eyed this summer

Despite splashing well over £100m over the course of the summer, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern aren’t convinced they’ve enjoyed a good window. 

Indeed, Antonio Conte’s squad remains paper-thin and, with Diego Costa expected to depart, the Blues in our bar are desperate to see some more signings brought in.

So, what they really didn’t need, was a story from the Daily Record. They claim Real Madrid are keen on making a move for Eden Hazard this summer, having missed out on Kylian Mbappe.

The latter continues to be strongly linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and with Los Blancos seemingly always bringing in a Galactico, Hazard is said to have emerged as an option.

Undoubtedly one of the best players in the Premier League, the 25-year-old is currently out of action with a broken ankle and Zinedine Zidane has previously spoken of his admiration for the former Lille man.

A move to the Spanish capital has been touted for Hazard in the past, though you can imagine just how scared our resident Chelsea supporters are about that idea.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Losing Hazard now would cap off a disastrous summer for Chelsea. If Conte is going to make the Blues competitive in the Champions League, the Belgian international is beyond crucial to that and seeing him depart now would put Chelsea in a difficult position.

There’d just be no way Chelsea could replace him.
