Chelsea in Hazard-Cavani swap deal talks

Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain are in talks over a sensational swap deal involving Eden Hazard and Edinson Cavani, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.

The report claims in the wake of Jose Mourinho’s comments about the Chelsea star earlier this week, talks between the Blues and PSG have stepped up.

Following the 3-1 home defeat to Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, Hazard said that “Chelsea are not made to play football” and suggested that it’s left up to him to inspire the team going forward.

Mourinho responded to the remarks by questioning Hazard’s commitment to the team, and the Belgian international was at fault for the first Atletico goal after switching off defensively. But the rift between the two could lead to a remarkable swap deal if the reports are to be believed.

Hazard has been linked with PSG for much of the season, with the defending French champions extremely complimentary during their Champions League tie. Meanwhile, Chelsea have been mentioned as a possible destination for disgruntled PSG striker Edinson Cavani.

The £50m Uruguayan international has played second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic this season, and despite an impressive goals return, could be open to leaving the Parc des Princes after just a single season.

As a result, L’Equipe reports that the deal could be beneficial for both sides – Mourinho would get the central striker he craves and Hazard would get a return to France with the country’s biggest club.
