As we’ve all become aware, over the years, situations can change so quickly in the sport we love.
Experience has shown me, personally, to never take anything for granted, if you do so you run the risk of experiencing a nasty surprise.
Let’s take the case of Eden Hazard and his immediate future.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve committed to the site, several articles relating to whether the talented Belgian will stay at Stamford Bridge or will move on.
My personal view is that a parting of the ways is somewhat inevitable.
But have I gauged the situation completely wrong?
This morning, flicking through the various media sources available, something in the red-top publication, the Mirror, has caught my eye.
The referenced source is championing the suggestion that Real Madrid are under the impression that their chances of luring Eden Hazard to the Bernabeu have improved dramatically what with Chelsea struggling under the managerial acumen of Maurizio Sarri.
Now, on the surface, Real Madrid may have a point, with Chelsea struggling and with the clubs activity in the January transfer window being not as spectacular as we all hoped, Hazard may have decided that his time with us is fast coming to a close.
But then, something else caught my eye.
Lurking in the pages of the other major tabloid publication this country of ours publishes, the Sun, is the inference that Chelsea are looking to replace Sarri with one Zinedine Zidane.
If that does prove to be the case, it could be a whole new ball game.
What was it Eden Hazard said about wanting to play under a man he perceives as a legend?
