Chelsea could be ready to sell Eden Hazard thanks to new strength

Chelsea could be willing to listen to huge offers for Eden Hazard this summer, as they’re no longer solely dependent on his abilities to win the matches, according to reports in France.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport carries a rather speculative piece of gossip this morning, suggesting that though the Blues have thus far laughed off all supposed approaches for their star man, they could adopt a different stance when this season finishes.

Chelsea's star spine

The frame of the rumour is based around the fact that the 2014 arrivals of Nemanja Matic, Francesc Fabregas and Diego Costa have given Chelsea an immeasurably strong core, meaning that Hazard is no longer the natural go-to-guy when Mourinho’s men look to break forward. Indeed in past campaigns they have relied heavily on the Belgian winger, with last term seeing him at his brilliant best.

However the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have never disappeared entirely from the picture, and both clubs have the sort of funds necessary to forge a deal for Hazard if there’s any scope for Chelsea selling him.

Funds to do the deal

The 23-year-old, who is on a cushy £185,000-a-week deal at Stamford Bridge, is rightly regarded as one of the best players on the continent, but as was proven with the cases of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez, every footballer has his price.

With Real also caught up in a whirlwind of speculation claiming they’re considering the possibility of offloading Gareth Bale, a Los Blancos move for Hazard doesn’t seem altogether impossible after all.


Of course at the moment it’s just fanciful hype, with Hazard still having pride of place amongst Mourinho’s starting XI. Though he may be, as Le 10 put it, a star amongst other stars now, he’s still the Blues’ brightest, and losing him would certainly have an adverse effect on morale.
