As far as the summer transfer window went, Chelsea’s biggest achievement, in my opinion, was the fact that Chelsea managed to hold on to their jewel-in-the-crown, Eden Hazard.
With media speculation insisting that the Belgian international was the target of a huge bid from Real Madrid, Chelsea refused to entertain the idea of selling their star player.
Now whether Chelsea can persuade Eden to put pen-to-paper on a new contract remains to be seen.
Hopefully, they can and hopefully, next summer, steps will be taken to further improve the side.
Today, lurking in the pages of the media source, the Express, is a very interesting insinuation, although, in my opinion, I’m not sure it is a feasible one.
Our source is championing the suggestion that if the Brazilian forward, Neymar were ever to leave Paris Saint-German for a move to the Premier League, then the 26-year-old would prefer a move to either Chelsea or Arsenal.
It appears the Brazilian just loves London!
But, with Paris Saint-Germain having paid in excess of €200 million for the player, I just can’t see either Chelsea or Arsenal splashing out that sort of cash for one player.
But, can you just imagine it, Neymar and Hazard playing in the same forward line, what a treat that would be.
