Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
In a shocking development, the 24-year-old is rumoured to have fallen out with Jose Mourinho. Although the club’s spokesperson have denied any comments, reports emerging from Belgium indicate not everything is fine between the Special One and his special player.
Clubs across Europe have been interested in Hazard ever since he plied his trade in France. During the last couple of transfer windows, many have expressed their eagerness to sign the Belgian.
Chelsea’s refusal of Paris Saint-Germain’s enquiries have been widely reported. But it looks like many clubs will be in fray for the Belgian’s signature once the transfer window opens in June.
Hazard signed a new five-year deal with the Blues earlier this year. The playmaker has been excellent for Chelsea, scoring 16 goals and assisting another eight, in all competitions.
Chelsea currently sit atop the league table and look all set to clinch their fifth Premier League championship. Hazard, a contender for the FA Player of the Year, is bound to elevate the status of any club he joins, on the pitch as well as commercially.
With the likes of Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, Bayern Munich interested in Hazard’s services, a bidding war could ensue and Chelsea are expected to hold out for a fee upwards of ₤80m.
