23 year old Belgian criticised Jose Mourinho’s tactics following their exit to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals and in response the Blues boss attacked the attacker for not offering enough defensively.
This has led to growing speculation that a breakdown in the relationship between the pair could lead to the former Lille man leaving Stamford Bridge.
Etihad Stadium boss Manuel Pellegrini may look to the example of Juan Mata, who also fell out with Mourinho and was then sold to Premier League rivals Man United.
It seems wholly unlikely that the west London side would allow such a scenario playing out a second time, not least as Hazard is Chelsea’s most effective attacking weapon this term his total of 17 goals making him comfortably the club’s top scorer.
Having missed out in the chase for Isco, who left for Real Madrid, Pellegrini is still looking to bring a further creative midfield option, hence his interest in Hazard.
