5. Eden Hazard | Value: £60m

The recently-crowned PFA Young Player of the Year, Eden Hazard, might only be 23 years old - but he’s already worth almost double the price Chelsea paid for him in 2012.

The Blues paid Lille £32m for the gifted Belgium international two years ago. That fee initially seemed hefty for such a young player, who had only previously done the business in France’s Ligue 1, but you have to hand it Roberto Di Matteo and the other Chelsea officials who sanctioned the deal for Hazard: it was a marvellous piece of business.

Hazard is now one of the world’s most sought-after players - and a couple of Europe’s richest clubs would gladly pay in excess of £60m to sign the exciting attacking winger this summer.
