It’s going to be a very interesting summer at Stamford Bridge.
Will Maurizio Sarri be sacked? Will the club’s transfer ban be overturned? Will Eden Hazard leave?
So many questions and we have very few answers.
Plenty will depend on whether Chelsea manage to qualify for the Champions League or not.
But regardless of which European competition Chelsea will be playing in next season, it seems the answer to that Hazard question will be ‘yes.’
Chelsea’s star has been constantly linked with a move to Real Madrid and it’s looking increasingly likely that will happen this summer.
The Belgian superstar will have just 12 months remaining on his contract and is seemingly refusing to sign a new deal at the west London club.
With the lure of Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu, a move to Madrid is certainly tempting.
“Everyone knows the respect I have for Zidane as a player, but also as a manager. He was my idol. For sure, to play under Zidane would be a dream,” Hazard previously said.
And it seems as though it’s a done deal.
That’s according to Spanish outlet Marca.
They produced a report on Thursday night claiming that Hazard’s move to Real will be ‘sealed in a matter of days.’
It states that: “an agreement between all three parties will be made official in the coming days.”
Close to €100 million apparently.
With just 12 months remaining on his deal this summer, Chelsea don’t have the bargaining power to demand a larger fee.
Last summer, they wanted €200 million for the 28-year-old.
But it looks like Chelsea will just have to settle for €100 million and look to rebuild without their main man.
