Chelsea transfer news
Younger brother of current Blues star Eden, the Belgian attacker has enjoyed a fine run of form in the Bundesliga this season with loan club Borussia Monchengladbach.
Hazard has four goals and seven assists in all competitions for the German side, and Mourinho admits he is a player whose performances he has been playing close attention to, though he said it was too early to tell whether or not he would make it as a Chelsea player.
Still, the Portuguese coach appears to rate the 21-year-old highly, and feels he could one day field the two Hazard brothers in the same starting lineup, though he also pointed to the likes of Willian and Andre Schurrle as quality players competing for the attacking midfield places in his Blues lineup.
Speaking about Hazard’s future, Mourinho said: “He’s one of the few players I travel to see play live and we like him very much.
“But there is here one player in front of him who is not bad, a guy called Hazard like him, but Eden.
“The best decision was for him to go to Borussia and also Bundesliga is a good championship for him to play in and we’ll see what happens. They [the Hazard brothers] can play in the same squad and even be in same team, one in one side and the other in the other. We have Eden, (Andre) Schurrle, Oscar and Willian. We have a lot so for him it is better for him to play there.
“Is he coming back or staying at Borussia? Do we want to buy or sell? Do we want money to make financial operations? This is something we have to take step by step.
“He is one of those players we have on loan that has enough potential to play for Chelsea one day.”
