Chelsea cleared to have a free run at Eden Hazard as Euro giants close in on a new contract for their star player

Posted by

Injuries have prevented Eden Hazard from showing just how good he can be at Real Madrid, but it’s hard to put that transfer down as anything other than a disaster when you consider that it was reported the fee could rise to almost £150m.

The only time he was able to stay fit for a solid run of games came at the end of last season where he put together a great partnership with Karim Benzema and Real won the title, but he’s had the same issues over and over this season and he just hasn’t been sharp at all.

It now looks like Real Madrid are ready to move on, and a report last night from Calciomercato suggested that Chelsea and Roma were the leading candidates to sign him.

Chelsea were listed as the favourites because Roma will have a tough time matching his reported €15m annual salary, but there may have been an attraction in Jose Mourinho taking the job as they stated that Hazard has said he wanted to play for the Portuguese manager again.

Any interest from Roma was going to be dependent on Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving on after his outstanding season, but Football-Italia have now reported that he’s set to sign a new contract so that should end any faint interest they had in the Belgian star.

That now suggests that Chelsea are going to be the only team who have an interest in signing Hazard, but you do have to wonder if it’s really the right move to make.

If you could guarantee that he would get back to his best and the deal would make financial sense then of course the fans would take him back in a heartbeat, but the alternative could be a tough one to take.

It’s possible that he’ll cost too much, he’ll never get back to full fitness and the fans will be left with tainted memories if he’s a shadow of his former self.

It would be a huge story if it does happen and it would also be exciting to see, but the main thing for Hazard is finding a club that allows him to get back to his best next season.

  1. Hazard can still play for Chelsea and become a star again without what the media saying recovery . I’m a Chelsea fan but I also watched Eden being introduced into initial matches . It was obvious that he would get injuries . He was running too much . And the role he took at Real Madrid was not the role at Chelsea .

    Hazard has one problem with his football display . He holds the ball so much that he interferes with counterattack created .

  2. Thomas Tuchel is very good at helping players overcome injury problems and I believe if Hazard comes he’ll be fully fit and get back to winning ways..

    Chelsea lacks a creative and scoring forward and Hazard could help close that gap if given the opportunity. I trust Eden and I know his heart is still blue.

    All our forwards look confused and totally out of ideas in the 18 yard box or close to the box. We need someone who can take that bold step to win games when the whole team is clueless.

    It would really be a good buy. Get Eden and Lewy or Kane and we are good for next season’s Glory.

  3. Eden is a very good player we want him back and i believe he can be even more dangerous than before. Please we need him chelsea fans need him now thank-you.

  4. we need hazard than anything else,our front line guys doesn’t look serious interms of scoring.Acombination of lukaku and harzard can be good and we can fight for the league glory so the management should put that into consideration.
