Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are demanding some answers from our landlord, who has been talking about Real Madrid’s reported interest in Eden Hazard loudly from behind the bar.
There has been copious speculation linking Los Blancos with the Belgium international over the last few days, with the latest reports from Marca claiming the Blues have informed Hazard that they’ll hear out any offers from the Spanish giants this summer.
And Sky Sports’ Bryan Swanson has provided an interesting update on the developing saga, revealing that Chelsea have refused to comment on the rumours doing the rounds in the Spanish media.

Inevitably, the news has split opinion in the Tavern. Whilst our landlord reckons Chelsea are effectively pleading the fifth because there’s some truth to Marca’s claims, others believe the club shouldn’t feel obliged to respond to every piece of speculation thrown their way.
Either way, it’s starting to feel like we haven’t heard the last of Real Madrid’s interest in the 2015 PFA Player of the Year – who will likely be in the running for the award once again this season.
Will Hazard end up at Real Madrid this summer? Let us know by commenting below!
