Why FIFA is to blame for Hazard deal delay

Timothy Aiyeku



It has been suggested that the ban by the world football governing body FIFA is to blame for the delay in the transfer of Belgium international Eden Hazard to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.

Real Madrid are strong suitors of Eden Hazard as they have been following the star player for the past one year after the exit of star layer Cristiano Ronaldo from the club.

Manager Zinedine Zidane has dismissed claims that Eden Hazard would replace Cristiano Ronaldo at the club, stressing that the World Best Player would be difficult to replace but he admitted that the Belgium international would be a good addition.

Reports claim that Real Madrid have stepped forward with two bids but they have been rejected by the Blues as they have insisted on a £100 million for his signature.

However, the fact that the Blues team will not be able to register any new player makes it difficult for them to have Eden Hazard replaced as they have continued to delay the process.

Although, Eden Hazard is reportedly ready to hand a transfer request to the Blues but Chelsea are also preparing to ensure the transfer ban is upturned so they can land a replacement for Eden Hazard.
