If, as we reported yesterday, it now seems certain that Eden Hazard seems set to go, then one thing will need to be settled and to everyone’s agreement, namely, the transfer fee.
Yesterday, in our article, Click Here, we covered the inference that Real Madrid were willing to pay as much as £100 million for the 28-year-old Belgian star.
However, it appears that figure, according to two separate news vehicles this morning, may be debatable.
The good folk of the Standard are running with the inference that Chelsea, if the inevitable is to happen, will demand more than £100 million for their prized asset.
However, the Daily Mail is of the opinion that Real Madrid will do their utmost to try and get the player for less than the quoted £100 million and in order to do so may try to include either Marco Asensio or Isco in the deal.
Clearly, this summer could see some intensive talks being held.
Our view, at Vital Chelsea, is that however much the possible / probable transfer fee is set at, it is absolutely essential that Chelsea spend the money wisely.
This summer, we feel, will be a critical one as Chelsea prepare to look to the future, it’ll be a time where deadwood is cleared out and a new Chelsea takes shape, the manner in which the transfer fee is spent is the most crucial aspect of any possible / probable sale.
