Hazard set to renew the contract with Chelsea amid Real Madrid speculation

The world cup has come to an end but football fans are yet to witness the drama of 2018-2019 EPL season. Chelsea fans though are left with millions of unanswered questions on the speculation of the possible transfer of their star man and world cup silver ball winner Eden Hazard.

Since his childhood, the now 27-year-old Belgian winger has desired to one-time play for real Madrid! And this might be the best ever time for him to make a switch to Madrid especially now that Christian Ronaldo has found other pastures at Juventus! 

Sources from Chelsea and La Liga side reveals that a move is possible and that La Liga sides are ready to meet the Belgian playmaker asking prize of about 200M pounds. Chelsea are though reluctant to sell their star man as the new manager has requested the Chelsea board to keep Hazards, Thibaut and Willian! Chelsea's Roman Abramovich also is reluctant and ready to do anything to tie the three down at Stamford Bridge.

However, the switch to La Liga for Hazard may be possible but a mountain to climb due to the following factors;

+Chelsea owner Abramovich is a huge fan of the Belgian star and will not just sit and watch Hazard leave Stamford bridge!

+Hazard is a free player who loves attacking football, this has been lacking in Chelsea for quite long! Both Conte and Mourhino favored defensive football! This constantly hindered Hazard impact on the squad! But with the new manager's style {Sarri-ball}, the Hazard will have more free time and space to press forward and mind little on defense.

+Addition of Brazilian Italo midfielder Jorginho can also help to convince hazard of good partnership with teammate N'Golo Kante whose deal to PSG seemingly will collapse! This will add more strength to the midfield, creativity, and pace! These are all that Chelsea lacked in some games!

All the above situations might convince Eden Hazard to stay long at Chelsea, though the Belgian's father at many points has been campaigning for his son to leave for Madrid! The situation though lie in Edens hands for the best decision! Personally, I feel he (hazard) should stay and try something with Sarri!

However, if Hazard is to leave Chelsea today or this summer, his position will take some time to fill or never for a long time. In many games in his days, Hazard won the games for Chelsea. Last season FA cup final against Manchester United was a great example! His decisive attack won him a penalty that he nicely converted into a goal that decided the winner! 

It must also be noticed that Chelsea has lined some good deals as a potential replacement in case he (Hazard) will move away! A deal for Russian playmaker and Csk Moscow Golovin is in progress while contact has also been made with former Manchester United and now crystal palace playmaker Zaha! Both Zaha and Golovin are great European talents that are capable of stepping up for hazard's role when chances are granted to them! Zaha has proved himself at the palace while Golovin's performance at Russia national team is a no doubt that he has what it takes to play in European giant clubs like Chelsea.
