It wouldn’t be the weekend would it if the future of Eden Hazard didn’t generate a few column inches.
Today, the good folk of the Mirror, have ensured that we get our weekend fix of Eden Hazard transfer speculation.
Our referenced source is championing the idea that it is not only Real Madrid, on mainland Europe, who are looking to lure the 27-year-old away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
Seemingly, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are also interested.
However, is it really a choice of the three clubs mentioned?
Now, obviously, I’d prefer Eden to stay at Chelsea but if the jewel-in-our-crown does decide the time is ripe to leave us, then to have three clubs interested in him can only be beneficial for the club.
Three clubs being interested in the player will push the price up although I somehow doubt, unless they sell players first, Paris Saint-Germain will be able to raise the funds without falling foul of Financial Fair Play rules.
As for Juventus, does Serie A, with its cynical defenders really appeal to Eden with the player already having bemoaned the fact that he gets kicked far too often in the Premier League.
Which leaves Real Madrid, his dream move and one I feel will, despite my hopes, happen!
But, as they say, there’s a lot of mileage left in this speculation yet.
