Anyone out there who is secretly hoping that Chelsea will hang on to Eden Hazard for another season, thereby letting the hugely talented Belgian international leave on a free transfer next summer, might want to stop reading this article right now.
It clearly, as the news source, the Daily Mail, points out, isn’t going to happen.
In a time where football is governed by clubs having to abide by the Financial Fair Play Regulations, plain economic sense tells you that to lose somebody of Hazard’s value, for nothing, isn’t in the rule book.
In fact, such a move could be seen as something akin to financial suicide.
Hazard, whether we like it or not, will be playing his last game for Chelsea, in the Europa League Final, in Baku, whether we like it or not.
Such is life in the modern game of football, it’s all about balancing the books financially or else suffer the consequences.
