The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern would love to see him at Stamford Bridge…
All the talk amongst the Chelsea fans in the Tavern so far this season has been about Hazard – but not the one that most English football fans recognise.
Eden Hazard has been with the Blues for a few years now, and whilst everyone is aware of his talents – he hasn’t really been in the best form over the last year or so.
Perhaps less well known is the fact that Eden Hazard has a brother, Thorgan Hazard – that Chelsea sold to Borussia Monchengladbach after several years as part of the Blues’ loan army.
Recently, reports have been emerging that Chelsea have a buy-back clause inserted into the deal for Hazard – meaning that the Blues can pay a certain, reduced fee and bring him back to London.
However – that does not appear to be the case.
As per the Evening Standard, Chelsea reportedly do NOT have a buy-back clause with Hazard; but instead have a first refusal option.
Essentially, what this means is that if another team is interested in the Belgian, Chelsea are given the chance to sign him first.
This is important as, should a side like Manchester City come in for Hazard – Chelsea can swoop in and sign him first.
Interestingly, the Evening Standard add that Hazard would be unwilling to join Chelsea unless he can be guaranteed a starting role with the club. How this would effect any proposed deal is unclear.
Thorgan Hazard has been impressing everyone in the Football Transfer Tavern in recent weeks and a few stunning displays both domestically and continentally.
In fact – our landlord think’s he is starting to look even better than his brother!
The Chelsea fans are hoping that the club go in for the young Belgian, given Eden’s poor form in recent weeks. A family reunion could lead to years of unstoppable attacks at Stamford Bridge…
