Chelsea fans are frowning at the news coming from Metro here in the Football Transfer Tavern and are quite frankly getting a little bit fed up of talking about Eden Hazard.
It was only yesterday that we were discussing the fact that the winger has now been handed his favoured number ten shirt by the club in an attempt to keep him away from the clutches of Paris Saint-Germain – and now it seems Chelsea are willing to go a step further as well.
The Blues are reportedly keen on offering their star player a wage increase – which seems to be all the range for unhappy players at the minute – and will increase the current salary the player receives on a weekly basis from £170,000 to £200,000.
As one of our punters comments, Yaya Toure will be asking his agent to ramp up the PSG links if this is what gets you a pay rise – but the French club still believe they can land Hazard.
Now our landlord moves over to the pool table with a round of pints and pauses to join the conversation.
He notes that Chelsea do not need to sell and despite PSG thinking that £68 million is a good offer, when you consider the fact that they paid £50 million for David Luiz, it really isn’t.
Chelsea have made a combined £90 million from the sales of Juan Mata and David Luiz – meaning they don’t really need to worry about balancing the books that much.
Chelsea fans. Will the club sell Hazard or are PSG really just wasting their time when they could be chasing realistic targets? Let us know your thoughts below.
