I’m guessing that between now and when the summer transfer window closes, we’re going to see a lot of transfer speculation regarding Eden Hazard.
At the moment, with the player having two-years left on his Chelsea contract, it is accepted that it will be Chelsea who decides whether the talented Belgian remains at Chelsea or is sold for a colossal fee.
Today, as the speculation increases, the good folk of the Evening Standard, are reporting that Real Madrid are ready to try and tempt Chelsea to sell by making an opening offer.
However, it appears that their opening offer of £112 million falls well short of the £200 million valuation the club has put on the head of the 27-year-old.

“I won’t lie, I speak to him often.
“He is the best player at the club and we need at Chelsea to keep the best players. He knows the fans love him and he’s a player we love to play with. For sure, we want him to stay.”
Sentiments I’m sure you’ll join me in echoing.
However, delving into the social media world, it appears, according to one news source, Chelsea are not too fazed by the interest in their jewel-in-the-crown;

Let’s hope those who run our club have an ace or two up their sleeves to convince Eden that his long-term future is with Chelsea and not on the continent.
