4) Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund)
One of the most exciting young talents in Europe, it would be great to see this England star of the future back in the Premier League.
If Hazard does leave Chelsea for Real Madrid, Jadon Sancho seems an ideal long-term replacement who could be a star performer at Stamford Bridge for the next decade or more.
Sancho’s rise at Borussia Dortmund has been great to watch, but he’s now surely at the stage where he could command a regular place at a top English club too.
5) Christian Pulisic
On his way to Chelsea in the summer, perhaps Christian Pulisic is the man already identified to come in as Hazard’s replacement.
The USA starlet has been another exciting young player making waves in the Bundesliga, but Chelsea fans may justifiably hope the club have a bit more of a plan as it would be a lot on his young shoulders to come in and instantly replace such a big name.
6) Callum Hudson-Odoi
Another potential replacement right under Chelsea’s noses, Callum Hudson-Odoi looks an outstanding young talent who could become every bit as good as Sancho has proven himself to be at Dortmund.
CFC don’t have the best track record of giving youth a chance, but the 18-year-old is there to step in to Hazard’s shoes if the club just show him some faith.
