Barcelona legend and former Ballon d’Or winner Rivaldo has stated that Chelsea’s Eden Hazard will solve the current problem at Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants’ poor results this season has been linked to the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo away from the Los Blancos.

The Portuguese player had left Spain on a big money transfer deal to Italian side Juventus where he is currently having a different fee of football on the other side.

The insinuation that Madrid are finding it difficult to win without Ronaldo will be over if the Spanish giants are able to secure the signing of the Belgium star, says Rivaldo.

The Belgium international has hinted on joining the Madrid because it will serve him the best chance of winning the Ballon d’Or award.

Although the Chelsea star had disclosed his readiness to hold talks with the West London club on a new deal, it believed that a move to Spain is imminent, either in the January window or the next summer transfer window.

Rivaldo described Hazard as a great player who has the ability to cover the Ronaldo space at Madrid and return the club back to winning ways.

Hazard has been in fine form this season sparking suggestions that this could be his best chance of winning the Ballon d’Or award.

Roman Abramovich

It is still a surprise to many and former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is yet to take a stand or make a statement on the fate of his club against what he is known for.

The West London outfit under manager Maurizio Sarri suffered their third humiliating defeat in five games which is known to be unacceptable to the club owner as speculations grow that the Italian boss could be called out of the Stamford Bridge.

Going by previous reactions of the Billionaire owner, it is expected that Maurizio Sarri would be sacked by now because he is known to be impatient to failure especially when all needed has been provided.

The Chelsea legend who expressed surprise at Abramovich’s silence stated that keeping Maurizio Sarri at the club will not be the best for the club because it is clear he has nothing to offer at the Stamford Bridge.

He noted that the Blues have now been ridiculed and will not have the opportunity of playing in the Champions League because they are fifth in the league table with the hope of breaking into the top four looking bleak.

However, the Blues are now left with the Carabao Cup to fight for against Man City but their chances are very slim.

The fans were seen to have had chants against the Italian boss with others taking to the social media to blast him for his style of football which is not working but there might not be any need for that with the former Napoli boss making it clear that he does not care about all they say.

This is the third defeat suffered by the West London outfit in their last five games across all competitions and it is unacceptable to the fans who think they deserve better.

Maurizio Sarri has made it clear that he is only worried about the result and how to get his club back to winning ways not what the fans say as admits pressure to deliver.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has confessed he might not be having the support of his layers anymore after he was defeated 2-0 by Man United in the FA Cup on Monday night.

The defeat makes it the third defeat in their last five games and Maurizio Sarri can no longer boast of having the support of his players.

It would be recalled that the Italian boss had blasted the players, claiming that they were difficult to motivate in addition to slamming them for claims that they know nothing about his Sarr-Ball after the two defeats against Arsenal and Bournemouth reactively.

Suggestions are that the players could fight back and hurt the manager but he held peace talks with them and hoped he could get them back on tract but obviously, that has not happened.

However, the former Napoli boss said he does not really bother about the relationship between him and the players but he is only concerned about them playing better and getting a good result in games.

Maurizio Sarri, therefore, called on his team to improve so that the target this season can be met with the FA Cup already out of the way for the West Londoners.

Olivier Giroud

West London outfit Chelsea will face Man United in the fifth round of the FA Cup amidst their inconsistent performance in recent weeks.

More to it is the fact that manager Maurizio Sarri is unsettled as his job is being liked away owing to the last 6-0 humiliation they suffered against Man City. The Italian boss is obviously under pressure to deliver.

French striker Olivier Giroud has therefore called on his teammates to rally round the Italian boss to ensure they secure a win in the game as he stresses that the season for the West London outfit is yet to be over.

The former Arsenal striker stated that he is used to the situation as he has had to deal with pressure his entire career noting that the secret behind overcoming is for the team to stick together and think collectively.

He noted that his side are not in the best position but that does not mean they do not have the chance to make it against the Red Devils.

However, a defeat for Chelsea will mean more troubles for the former Napoli manager who might be asked to leave as former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is reported to be ready o take up the job.

Gonzalo Higuain

Having scored two goals in his few games in the Blue jersey, there are fears that Argentina international striker Gonzalo Higuain would leave the West London club, Chelsea, earlier than expected.

Gonzalo Higuain joined the London side on the last day of the January winter transfer window on a loan deal with the hope that he would be signed on a permanent deal at the end of the season as manager Maurizio Sarri has not hidden his love for the star man.

They have both worked together in the past which is a major reason why the move worked through and that is already being threatened with the speculations of a sack.

Suggestions are that the West London outfit would lose Gonzalo Higuain should Maurizio Sarri be sacked as it is not certain a new manager will have need of him.

The expectation that the West London outfit will have a lot of benefits to gain from Gonzalo Higuain who is known to be experienced and have won a number of titles would be cut short as long as Sarri is no more at the club.

Meanwhile, the Italian boss has led the Blues to suffer one of the most humiliating defeats in a long time after the 6-0 against Man City.

Mauro Icardi

The decision by Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid to step down from their pursuit of Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan star player Mauro Icardi seem to be in the advantage of English Premier League outfit Chelsea.

Mauro Icardi has been on the radar of the West London outfit over the last months and was expected to join the Stamford Bridge in the last January winter transfer window but he rejected the move with the hope that he would be moving to the Spanish side.

Real Madrid were initially reported to be keen on the star striker but they have now dropped from the race which gives Chelsea the hope to now return for a bid for the star player.

The West London outfit will be more positive this time around knowing that Mauro Icardi is now unsettled at the club and will likely seek a move away in the coming summer window.

Mauro Icardi was stripped of the captaincy by the San Siro outfit which made him drop from the first team as a result of an ongoing contract issue he has with the club.

However, the Blues are expected to make a move for Mauro Icardi but there could be a disagreement in the personal terms for the player.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is currently having a tough time at the Stamford Bridge with his future at the club now uncertain after he saw his side humiliated 6-0 by Man City in a Premier League tie.

With difficult fixtures lined up for the Blues team, there are fears that the manager could be sacked if he fails to win at least one of the first two coming ahead.

However, Chelsea assistant Gianfranco Zola says his boss should not be placed under unnecessary pressure because what he is going through is not new in the business.

According to him, big managers like Pep Guardiola have also gone through the difficult stage and were questioned on their ability to deliver while their future was also speculated to be short but they were able to scale through with time.

Gianfranco Zola, therefore, stated that the Italian boss should be given more time to resolve the issues with the results and adjust to returning back to winning ways.

However, the West London outfit will begin with an all-important fixture against Man United in the fifth round of the FA Cup. There is o doubt that a defeat for the Blues team will cast spell to the former Napoli manager’s job.

The popular opinion at the beginning of the season was that the Blues’ side have a complete team but the narrative changed as soon as the Maurizio Sarri-led team started suffering some defeat and inconsistency in their game.

This makes it necessary for the Blues side to strengthen the team in the coming summer window especially now that they might be losing Belgium international Eden Hazard at the end of the season with suggestions that he would be heading to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.

News outlet Tavern has suggested that the Blues look the direction of German Bundesliga outfit Monchengladbach midfielder Thorgan Hazard as they prepare for the summer window.

According to Tavern, Thorgan Hazard has developed to one of the finest attacking midfielders in Europe and could be perfect to replace his brother at the Stamford Bridge.

Thorgan Hazard is expected to cost Chelsea a lot but it is suggested to be a big deal that will be appreciated over the years because of his brilliant technique, his finishing and ability to change the game.
