Chelsea given green light to sign Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard during this summer transfer window. Los Blancos would be open to the prospect of cashing in on the 30-year-old attacker, with a €60m price tag likely to be slapped on the forward.
Belgium international completed a dream move to the Spanish club in the summer of 2019, arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu from the London club following a fruitful seven-year stint in Chelsea.
However, the move to Real Madrid has not worked out as planned for either Hazard or the La Liga giants, as the attacker has spent more time off the pitch than on it. To date, Eden has played only 43 games for Los Blancos, tallying up a paltry comeback of five goals and eight assists in the process.
With injuries taking a toll and restricting his playing time considerably, there have been suggestions that Real Madrid could cash in on the Belgian attacker this transfer window to cut their losses. And Eden has now been offered to the Blues.
Chelsea had been the best place for the Belgian attacker before he sealed the switch to the Spanish capital, and he was a talismanic player for the London club for well over half a decade.
However, after a tough 2019/20 season without him, Chelsea looked to have moved on from Hazard quite to some extent the last term. Indeed, the likes of Havertz, Pulisic and Werner have shown hopeful signs even if none of them have been fully consistent.
And even though Ziyech is strongly linked with a possible summer exit, the Blues’ priority this transfer window appears to be a centre-forward. To that end, Chelsea have the likes of Erling Haaland, Romelu Lukaku and Robert Lewandowski, among others, on their list.
With Los Blancos’ €60m valuation of the Belgian star proving to be unrealistic for the Blues. For now, the London giants have been offered the opportunity to seal a grand return for Eden Hazard this transfer window.
However, as things stand, it appears highly unlikely that the Blues will swoop their former forward away from Los Blancos, and surely not as part of a €60m deal.
It’s unclear at what terms this supposed offer may or may not have been made at, but what is clear is that the Blues aren’t really in need of a forward, and they are certainly not spending €60m on the Belgian winger.
