As per reports, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard could be all set to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the current season. The Belgian international has scored just once in the current campaign for the Blues, which has been a penalty in the FA Cup. This has prompted the west London side to go ahead and sell him to La Liga giants Real Madrid for a surprisingly cut-price fee, after the winger had a superb season in the previous campaign.
The reports about the substantial drop in fee has been confirmed by reports in the Spanish media and it was journalist Eduardo Inda, who hade made this claim recently on TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones. He had insisted that there were talks being held at an advanced stage between the champions of England and the former European champs and that the switch to the Bernabeu could possibly be completed prior to the Euro 2016 tournament.
The shocking part is that, not even a year has passed since the 25 year old attacker was named the Premier League Player of the Year and is now struggling to make any sort of impact. Former boss Jose Mourinho has been fired as well and Hazard has not been able to really impress under Guus Hiddink as well. Due to this, the fee which was really high at one point of time is just around €25m(£20m) now.
Further, there were some speculations stating that the club’s owner Roman Abramovich was actually the one to have made the decision to sell Hazard after his below par performances this term. With just a single goal this season and partly being responsible for the sacking of Mourinho, the Belgian playmaker could be heading to one of the Portuguese manager’s old clubs.
Whether or not he can replicate some of his best form in the upcoming days remains to be seen, as the current season moves towards
the business end of things and each and every game is now more important than ever.
