The Blues’ valuation is too high, feels Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, who are in the chase for this season’s Chelsea flop Eden Hazard. Hazard has struggled this campaign badly. Imagine someone getting the PFA player of the year award and scoring just two goals since then, when the season is about to end.
DailyStar reports, Chelsea have made it clear to Europe’s top agents that they want to sell the 25-year-old and will appreciate incoming offers for the Belgium international. The valuation is £80m, which is proving to be a stumbling block and already many clubs have changed their minds. Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain think with Hazard’s current poor run of form this season, his value should be around £20m or even lower.
Antonio Conte could be tempted to let the Belgian midfielder leave Stamford Bridge to generate funds for his important transfer targets like Juventus’s Paul Pogba. The Frenchman’s fellow team-mate, Leonardo Bonucci, is also said to be the target for the current Italy international manager who is ready rescue the Blues after a horrible season as defending champions of the Premier League.
Eden Hazard has also revealed his desires. The 25-year-old Belgian stated that if an offer from the French side PSG comes, it will be a possible yes to his Stamford Bridge exit.
Chelsea have suffered another away defeat yesterday to Swansea, with Diego Costa being suspended and John Terry out with injury, Swansea converted their chances and won the game by one goal. Currently sitting at the 10th place with only little to play for in the remaining six Premier League matches, Conte has a lot of work to do at Chelsea. From lifting the league trophy to struggling as a mid-table club in a single season, surely there is something horribly wrong with the club and Conte is willing to fix it. If axing the number 10 can solve their problem, Conte is not afraid to do that.
