Reports suggest that Chelsea’s Eden Hazard has held a meeting with Real Madrid officials to discuss a potential move (via The Metro).
It’s the sort of news which Chelsea fans dread reading but the club’s star player could be considering an exit.
Reports suggest that Eden Hazard has held a meeting with Real Madrid over a potential transfer to the Spanish side.
It’s unclear how formal this meeting was but it’s not uncommon for players to meet with rival clubs.
Hazard has just a couple of years left on his current Chelsea contract and Chelsea fans need only look across London at the situation with Alexis Sanchez and Arsenal and feel a little nervous.
The Belgian’s importance to this Chelsea side is obvious just from looking at the difference in their performance levels both with and without the 27-year-old.
It’s unclear how much truth is in these rumours and whether or not a transfer like this could even happen. Real Madrid will be on the lookout for a Cristiano Ronaldo replacement in the coming years and Eden Hazard ticks all the right boxes. However, the Belgian has stated recently that he is happy at Stamford Bridge. We can only wait and see what happens.
