The future of Eden Hazard, as well as coverage of France’s splendid World Cup Final win, continues to generate column inches in the media today.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we’ve reached the stage whereby we suspect the 27-year-old Belgian international could well be heading for pastures new, something we’ve expressed our fears about numerous times this summer.
But, if we are going to lose the services of our jewel-in-the-crown it looks increasingly like it is going to cost his suitor, Real Madrid, a huge amount of cash.
The latest indications, courtesy of the very well-respected news source, the Times, is that Chelsea could receive a world record transfer fee for the player, well in excess of £200 million, beating the fee Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona for Neymar Jnr.
Whilst we’d be, to put it mildly, gutted to see Eden leave, sometimes you have to accept that perhaps the time is right, Hazard obviously fancies playing for one of the biggest teams in the world and a world record fee would adequately compensate the club for his loss whilst also allowing to rebuild for the future.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we’ll keep our eyes open for any further developments.
