Why Hazard’s Madrid move is still good business for Chelsea


Chelsea are set to lose their best player Eden Hazard at the end of the season after failing to convince him into signing a new deal at the club.

If reports in the media are anything to go by, the Belgium international would be heading to the Spanish La Liga where he will play at his dream club Real Madrid.

There is no doubt that he will serve as a replacement for Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo who left the Bernabeu after winning the Champions League last season to the Italian Serie A giants Juventus.

However, what ought to be a big blow to the West London side might just turn out to be a blessing with reported that the Blues would be offered Isco as well as have the signature of Mateo Kovacic on a permanent deal.

Suggestions are that both players will be able to fill the gap that would be left by the Belgium man should an agreement work out at the end of the day.

Mateo Kovacic is currently on loan at the Stamford Bridge with manager Maurizio Sarri already falling in love with him and wants to keep him at the club.

Meanwhile, the West London side are still expected to benefit some cash from the deal in addition to the two players.
