Chelsea’s stronghold on keeping Eden Hazard happy is seemingly slowly diminishing. With the dicey nature of ‘Sarri-ball’ and the club struggling to compete at the top, the Belgian seems to be fixated on completing his move to Real Madrid. According to reports (via the Telegraph), Hazard will soon reveal his wishes to leave, meaning Chelsea need to find a replacement soon.
Indeed, it’ll be difficult to find someone of Hazard’s calibre, but considering that they’ll get loads of income from his deal, they can use the money to sign another world-class winger. While the idea of seeing one of the club’s best players of the modern era potentially walk out the door is a gutting one, the Blues shouldn’t fret. No one player is bigger than the club, after all.
So, with that in mind, here are TWO players they could replace him with.
A breakthrough star in the Serie A this season, Federico Chiesa’s blown apart multiple oppositions with his immaculate skill on the ball. A winger with a keen eye for goal, he’s scored 10 goals in all competitions for Fiorentina, providing 3 assists as well.
Chiesa can operate anywhere in the final third, with his pace, trickery and creativity shining through. The 21-year-old’s the next big star for Italian football can produce many moments of magic under Maurizio Sarri.
Replacing one Hazard with another!
While Thorgan might not be as popular as his brother, he’s proven to be quite the star at Borussia Monchengladbach this season. Thorgan’s scored 14 goals in all competitions and provided seven assists, not being far away with Eden statistically. Thorgan’s also a quick, opportunistic winger whose found a lethal edge to his game recently and could fill his big brothers’ shoes at Chelsea.
