Reports suggest that Eden Hazard might be open to a move away from Stamford Bridge and possibly team up with his ex-boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford. To hear it from a neutral perspective is bizarre, but from Chelsea’s perspective, it would be a nightmare.
The Belgian superstar has been West London club’s best player for quite sometime now. A crowd favourite and a treat to the eye, he is one of Europe’s hottest players around, with Real Madrid and Manchester United keen on the winger’s signature. A move away from Chelsea would be extremely hard to digest for The Blues’ faithful.
Hazard is only a quarter short of the 100 goal mark, a figure the Chelsea fans would be hoping he would achieve in front of a packed Stamford Bridge atmosphere wearing a blue jersey and not a red one.
His performances have grown by stature every season, except the 2015-16 campaign, where the entire Chelsea squad was offbeat to Mourinho’s tunes and went on to achieve a lowly 10th place. However, following the sacking of Mourinho, Chelsea went on the clinch the Premier League title next term, and as one would assume, Hazard was among the thick of things.
Hazard has expressed his admiration for his idol Zinedine Zidane, claiming that it would be a dream come true to work with the Los Blancos’ boss. On the other hand, he also hasn’t ruled out the possibility of reuniting with his former manager Mourinho, stating his pleasure in working with the Portuguese mastermind.
Hazard’s departure from Stamford Bridge would be a hard one to take for the Chelsea fans given what they have seen from their talisman year in and year out. He is a player who is almost irreplaceable with not many in the world who possess the quality such as the Chelsea star. At just 26, he is at the peak of his powers and there is certainly more to follow from the Belgian.
Assuming Chelsea does lose their star in the near future, who will fill in the shoes of such an emphatic figure? It would be a headache for any manager to find a suitable replacement without disrupting the club’s progress. At any given game, when the whole team looks down and out, the Blues look towards Hazard for a piece of brilliance or inspiration. His electric movement and skill on the ball enable him to change the story of the game single-handedly.
When a player is the pivot of the team, it is hard to digest and describe the stalwart’s departure. Chelsea fans would be hoping that isn’t the case with Hazard any time in the near future.
