Thorgan Hazard set to be given first-team place at Chelsea by Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is planning to shock Chelsea fans by introducing Eden Hazard’s younger brother Thorgan to the first-team, as he’s grown frustrated with the likes of Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah.

According to the Daily Express The Special One has big plans for Hazard mark two, despite the general consensus being that he would leave Stamford Bridge in order to find regular game-time.

Hazard's return

Whilst Eden has gone from strength to strength since his £32 million move from Lille his sibling has been farmed out on series of loans, and it looked as though he had been forgotten amongst the abundance of young players who call the Blues their parent club.

Yet it’s now claimed that Mourinho wants to use Hazard in his first-team from the end of this campaign onwards, which will almost certainly spell the end for one of the current attackers. The likes of Oscar, Willian and the elder Hazard have continually proved themselves indispensable to Mourinho’s title charge, but others haven’t been so fortunate.

The end for two?

Schurrle and Salah in particular are facing uncertain futures, with VfL Wolfsburg of the Bundesliga said to be readying a bid for the German international and a number of clubs - QPR included - keeping tabs on Salah.

If Thorgan Hazard does return then it would likely serve to accelerate the departure of one of the two aforementioned outcasts, although Borussia Monchengladbach, who currently have the 21-year-old on loan, want him to stay for another year.

Hazard senior

The youngster himself is said to be eager to prove himself alongside his younger brother, who will be looking to ensure that he’s vying to win the Ballon d’Or next year. The winger, who ranks comfortably as one of the best players in the Premier League, didn’t make the final three for the award, and will be aiming to help Mourinho’s men claim the English title so as to give himself the best opportunity of appearing at the gala next year.
