Spanish midfielder and 2010 World Cup winner Cesc Fabregas claimed that Chelsea will struggle to keep their talismanic figure Eden Hazard next summer than they did last summer.
Hazard has shown why the Blues took the risk of not letting him leave the exit door to join Thibaut Courtois in Real Madrid, scoring 6 goals in all competitions more than he did last year before the month of November.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri spoke in the conference room about the Belgian captain with an unwavering review of his performance this season as one who could meet up to the 40 goals demanded.
Yesterday saw the end of Liverpool’s run of 100% victory in all competition when Hazard scored a beautiful solo goal, which he regarded as one of his best goals so far in his career.
The 27-year-old diminutive skipper was superb at the World Cup before suggesting that he would love to join Real Madrid, leaving Chelsea to decide where he would be, knowing fully well he still has two years in his contract with the West London club.
Hazard has stalled contract renewal talks, keeping Chelsea at risk of having him sold to the Spanish giants has they lost money when Thibaut Courtois left for a meagre fee.
Chelsea’s midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas believes it would be a Herculean task to keep hold of him next year. Which means if the window closes next summer, his value would depreciate while moving closer to his contract’s expiration.
However, Sarri is still poised that the Belgian will put pen to paper sooner or rather than later.
Do you think Chelsea will keep Hazard next summer?
