Reports suggest Chelsea could offer Eden Hazard a huge new contract to ward off interest from Real Madrid.
The Belgian winger has been back to his brilliant best under Maurizio Sarri, and Madrid are long-term admirers of the forward. It seemed that Hazard could have headed to the Bernabeu in the summer as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who departed for Juventus. Luckily for the Blues, Hazard stayed put and has been in some of the finest form of his career.
With Madrid struggling on the field, reports have resurfaced linking them with a massive move for Hazard in January. However, reports suggest Chelsea will offer their key player a huge contract to keep him at Stamford Bridge. As well as securing Hazard’s future, Chelsea should be looking to strengthen their squad in the New Year.
One player who would be a great addition to the squad is Sevilla maestro – Pablo Sarabia. Valued at £31.5m by Transfermarkt, the Spaniard started his career at Real Madrid and was tipped to have a bright future with Los Blancos. However, he failed to make the grade and was eventually sold to Getafe before finally joining Sevilla.
Sarabia has finally found his feet and is currently enjoying the best season of his career. The 26-year-old, who can play through the middle or on the wing, has been red-hot in front of goal, finding the back of the net 15 times in all competitions. The playmaker has also been the creative hub of the Sevilla side, registering eight assists already.
With brilliant technical ability, an eye for goal and the vision to carve open defences – Sarabia has all the attributes to be a massive success in the Premier League. He could be the final piece of Sarri’s puzzle.
