Chelsea are willing to put Eden Hazard up for sale following his recent criticisms of Jose Mourinho's tactics, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo claims that the chances of perhaps Chelsea’s most important player leaving Stamford Bridge in the summer have greatly been boosted by recent ongoings, and the Blues may look to sell him to finance moves for the likes of Mario Mandzukic and Diego Costa. Recently crowned this season’s PFA Young Player of the Year, Hazard has enjoyed yet another impressive campaign, but recent reports suggest that he may be at loggerheads with Mourinho.
Mundo goes on to state that Barcelona may in fact be interested in a deal for the Belgian 23-year-old, as they look to put this season’s relatively disappointing campaign behind them. Naturally the media have jumped on the bandwagon following Hazard’s to-and-fro with his manager concerning the effort he puts into the defensive side of the game, but reports such as this one may alarm certain Chelsea fans.
Blues supporters have already seen Mourinho sell Juan Mata in a shock deal, and opt not to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the club this season. This would infer that the Special One very much has his own agenda with regards to shaping his team, and so it could be up to him whether or not Hazard stays or goes.
