The Chelsea fans within the Transfer Tavern are happy to have won the FA cup but they know that the cup victory papers over what has been an awful season for the Blues.
Blues fans weren’t necessarily convinced with the cup-winning performance but with Antonio Conte’s job on the line, he did all he had to do to claim the prestigious English trophy. One player who has particularly good for the FA cup winners though was match-winner Eden Hazard, who is valued at £90 million on Transfermarkt.
Although he had been quiet in a number of games during the lead-up to the final, Hazard proved exactly why in this game that Chelsea must to everything to cling onto the Belgian attacker this summer. The 27-year-old has again had a really good season for the Stamford Bridge side, scoring 17 goals and claiming 13 assists.
It is unknown whether Hazard will remain a Chelsea player without the lure of Champions League football and a player of his calibre would have numerous offers as well for sure. The Belgian on his day like he has shown is a completely dynamic player and a match-winner on his own. His low centre of gravity helps him manoeuvre round players like they aren’t even there, he is that good.
The Blues of course recognise his talent and all he has done during his time at Stamford Bridge but this summer in particular could prove to be make or break as to whether Chelsea can build themselves back up to be a title-winning side again, or whether not reaching the top four is a sign of a downwards spiral.
