Real Madrid Closing In On An Agreement With Chelsea For This Star: Huge Blow For Sarri?

According to a recent report by Marca (via the Express), Real Madrid are close to agreeing on an £86m fee with Chelsea for the services of Eden Hazard during the summer transfer window. The same source has also revealed that the Pensioners could have bagged £186m if they were willing to let the Belgian leave last summer.

However, they decided to keep him for this campaign which has seen his price-tag drop significantly as the former Ligue 1 prospect will have just a year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of this season.

Hazard’s Impressive Season Thus Far

Hazard has enjoyed another stellar campaign for the West London giants but the fact that Chelsea could miss out on UEFA Champions League football for next season doesn’t bode well for their chances of retaining the Belgian international beyond this summer.

Losing The Belgian For Just £86m Could Be A Huge Blow For Chelsea

If the Pensioners do decide to let him leave for £86m, then it will be a massive blow for them financially as a player of Hazard’s calibre should be valued at a much higher fee. He has arguably been Chelsea’s best player for the past half a decade so the possibility of him leaving would strike fear at the hearts of the club’s fans.

The 28-year-old has made 45 appearances for Maurizio Sarri’s team this term, scoring 19 goals while providing 12 assists across all competitions. He is also vastly experienced at the international level having represented Belgium in 100 international matches while scoring 30 goals for them so far.

How Will The Pensioners Cope Without Hazard?

The departure of Hazard would leave Sarri with a big hole to fill in his frontline. Without the Belgian wing wizard, the Pensioners are not the same threat going forward which goes to show how much of an impact he has made during his time at West London.

If Sarri can use the money generated from Hazard’s potential sale wisely, then the club could cope with the loss of such a valuable asset. However, the chances of them blowing up next season seem more likely at this moment due to their impending FIFA transfer ban for the following two windows looming on the horizon.
