The speculation relating to the future of Eden Hazard continues to generate numerous column inches.
Regular visitors to the site will have noticed, in recent days, we’ve run articles that have mentioned a couple of the options open to Chelsea.
The first discussed the fact that Real Madrid were looking to orchestrate a cheeky swap deal Click Here, that would see Hazard move to Real Madrid and the Welsh winger, Gareth Bale, move in the opposite direction.
The second mentioned that Real Madrid were Click Here, looking to open negotiations for the player with a derisory opening bid of £70 million.
Today, the red-top publication, the Daily Star, is championing the suggestion that Chelsea have rejected an initial offer from the Spanish giants.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we suspect it is the derisory offer, with Chelsea having previously rated the player in the £100 million bracket.
But, if that is the case, are Chelsea undervaluing their prized asset?
Digging deeper into the matter, one tabloid source, at the weekend, the Sunday Star, reports that Real Madrid are also interested in signing the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen.
However, our North London rivals want, if the deal is to go through, a world record fee of £200 million for their asset, a figure that exceeds the current world record fee of £198 million.
Now, when it comes to age, Hazard is two-years older than Eriksen which would perhaps reduce his value, but not that significantly.
Therefore, here at Vital Chelsea, are we right to suggest that perhaps a fairer price for Hazard would be circa £150 million, if a sale, as some believe, is inevitable?
