Eden Hazard scored his 100th goal for Chelsea in yesterday’s 2-1 win over Watford, however, his future at Stamford Bridge remain uncertain as Madrid are very much willing to lure him to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
The Belgian star has been a longtime target for the Spanish giants but the Blues are reluctant to sanction his move to the La Liga outfits.
Despite being ignored on numerous occasions, Madrid manager Santiago Solari has charged his employers to make another eye-catching bid for the 27-year-old midfielder.
As a result of Solari’s demand, Madrid president —who also love Hazard’s level of creativity — is reportedly set to release two of his midfielders as makeshift for the player’s signature in January.
According to Daily Mail, Florentino Perez has offered Matteo Kovacic and Isco in exchange for the former Lille man.
Kovacic is presently on a season long-loan move with the Blues and he’s doing greatly under Maurizio Sarri. Perez is more than ready to make the Croatian star remain permanently with the West London club in exchange for the versatile playmaker.
Isco has fallen out of favour with Santiago Solari and the Spanish midfielder is set to partway with the team.
Arsenal are being linked with his signature but Perez seems unsatisfied with Emery’s offer.
The billionaire has reportedly made up his mind over Isco’s future as he is ready to sanction his switch to Stamford Bridge in January.
No matter how attractive and interesting Madrid’s offer may sound, Sarri shouldn’t trade Hazard for anything in January.
The Belgian is Sarri’s most outstanding player at the moment, hence, the Italian manager must protect his jealousy.
Hazard who is a natural playmaker is deployed as a false 9 by Maurizio Sarri and he’s doing great in his newfound position.
Isco is a well-known and world-class midfielder who will add more depth to the team, unfortunately, there is no need to add more midfielders in January.
Ross Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi are begging for regular game time under the Italian manager but haven’t been given the chance to feature prominently
The fact that Isco isn’t a proven goalscorer makes the offer a less important one. The Blues will lost the only player who has been carrying the team’s goalscoring burden since Morata and Giroud’s dry spell in front of goal.
Should Perez add either Gareth Bale or young Marcos Asensio in the deal, then, Sarri could have second thought about the offer as his team currently lack a proven goalscorer
