Ever since Eden Hazard joined Chelsea back in 2012, the fans in the Transfer Tavern have been concerned about a potential departure. The Belgian is, undoubtedly, one of Europe’s best players, and he has proven that since swapping France for London.
It’s a deal that most fans have been fearing for years, but it appears as though that stance is beginning to change.
Indeed, whilst most would clearly love to keep Hazard, fans – at least on Twitter – appear to be coming around to the idea of a departure, on the condition that someone comes the other way.
More specifically, it appears as though Chelsea fans had their eyes fixed on their television screens yesterday – as they are all calling for Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio to come the other way. Asensio was playing for Madrid as they knocked PSG out of the Champions League.
Asensio has found life far from easy in Madrid, having yet to really cement himself in the team on a weekly basis. Nonetheless, when he has played, he has looked very good indeed. Displaying brilliant technique and flair, alongside a great goal threat, the Spaniard is undoubtedly a future superstar.
Chelsea fans appear desperate for him to move to Stamford Bridge, and you can take a look at a few of the comments below that are requesting the deal to happen…
If we give hazard to madrid (will be around £250m) then we better get 2-3 of their players to help bolster us. Massive opportunity. Have to get asensio/bale involved.

I think if Hazard goes we need both Isco and Asensio #CFC

Hazard can leave if he wants to, I'll happily take Marco Asensio.

If we are letting Hazard leave, we have to ask for Asensio no choice.

Would you swap Hazard for Isco & Asensio? No brainer for me.

Tell you what… Hazard’s off this summer and Real Madrid want him so why don’t we ask for Asensio plus cash for him?

If we are losing Hazard, we better be getting Asensio as part of the deal
