Our Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping the Chelsea board can tie down one of their best players in recent years.

Much has been made around Eden Hazard and a potential summer move to Real Madrid but the Blues are not going to let their £90m-rated man leave without a fight, indeed Hazard would fetch more than double that in today’s market, according to our barman.

The Stamford Bridge outfit need players like Hazard in the team if they are to start fighting for trophies and titles again next season.

Furthermore, our regulars feel that the Chelsea board need to break the bank to entice Hazard to stay and keep him away from the growing presence of Real Madrid. A deal reportedly worth around 300k a week is said to be on the table for the Belgian.

Our landlord takes a look at two reasons why tieing Hazard down to a long-term deal, could be Chelsea’s best bit of business for years…
