Barcelona plotting to replace Manchester United transfer target with Chelsea superstar

According to reports, Barcelona are understood to be considering a move for Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard as a potential replacement for Neymar.

The Brazilian forward has been heavily linked with a move away from the Nou Camp in recent weeks and months, and although it’s hard to fathom why he would opt to leave Catalonia, where he is one third of one of the greatest front lines of the history of the game, suggestions that he is on his way to Manchester United are beginning to gather momentum.

According to French Source BuzzSport [as per the Daily Star], the forward is considering his future in Spain following the ongoing controversy surrounding his move to Barca from Santos in 2013.

As United monitor the situation closely—and monitor the player’s availability—Luis Enrique is understood to be considering other options.

Hazard is understood to be Plan A, according to the source, while Juventus’ Paul Pogba and Juventus hitman Paulo Dybala are also being eyed by the Catalan giants as potential replacements for Neymar, even if the Frenchman would not be a like-for-like replacement.
