According to a recent report by Marca, Chelsea star Eden Hazard is inching closer towards a move to Real Madrid in the summer. The same source has revealed that both the Pensioners and the Galacticos are on the verge of agreeing on a deal which would send the Belgian international to the Spanish capital in the summer transfer window.
Hazard: Chelsea’s Best Player Of This Decade
The 28-year-old has been loyal to the West London club since making a switch from LOSC Lille in the summer of 2012. Hazard has gradually transformed himself into a world-class winger during his time with the Premier League giants.
The Belgian wide man has enjoyed another excellent campaign with Chelsea after putting in a series of match-winning displays for them during this campaign. Hazard has featured in 41 matches, scoring 17 goals while creating 12 assists in all competitions.
The Belgian Wing Wizard
The La Louviere born sensation is also vastly experienced at the international level having represented Belgium in 100 matches, scoring 30 goals for them in various international tournaments. What makes Hazard such a special talent is his ability to be a match-winner for Chelsea against any given opposition. Such players are quite hard to come by these days so it will be a significant loss for the Pensioners heading into the new campaign.
What Does Hazard Offer On The Pitch?
Hazard boasts blistering pace and is one of the best dribblers in the English top-flight. He has a very low centre of gravity which helps him get past his marker at high speed to either create a goal-scoring chance for himself or his teammates in the final third.
Losing Hazard: Huge Blow For Sarri?
His departure will reduce the quality of Maurizio Sarri’s squad significantly and even more so, primarily due to the club’s impending transfer ban imposed by FIFA for the next two transfer windows. The Blues of London need their star player, Hazard, now more than ever, if they are to cope with their transfer ban and come out on the other side with flying colours.
Hence, the loss of the Belgian talent will be a bitter pill to swallow for Sarri and his quest to establish long-term success at the Bridge.
