Chelsea’s falling apart is about to hit its worst stage as the best player in the club is set to depart, putting the claims and rumours beyond any further doubt. Hazard might have not been able to replicate the form that earned him the PFA Player of the Season award last term, but it can’t be argued that he is still a force to reckon with at the Stamford Bridge.
But with reports filtering out few weeks ago that he was getting unhappy at the club, doubts concerning his future with the defending champions were beginning to grow. It has now been confirmed that he wants to leave Chelsea, and has informed his agent to make a transfer away from the club possible.
The Belgium international started the game against Aston Villa on bench, and was only brought on in the closing stages of the game to replace Pedro. The action, although justified by Mourinho is said to have served as the final straw that broke the camel’s back. The player went on afterwards to like a link on social media that linked him with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, and many believe he has dropped the biggest hint as per a move to Real Madrid. Having openly discarded any possibility of returning to the Ligue 1 following PSG’s interest in him, Real Madrid is said to be the choice next stop for the 24 year-old winger.
The former Lillie player is also being linked with the Manchester Clubs and Barcelona, but Real Madrid seem to be his favorite destination. Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez is said to be fond of Hazard, and that could influence his decision to sign for the Los Blancos. A Real Madrid dream move could come true for Eden, and that will be another big blow, if not the biggest for Chelsea.
