Can Chelsea afford to keep Eden Hazard for another season?

Timothy Aiyeku



Belgium international Eden Hazard has been linked with a move away from the West London outfit Chelsea even before the end of the season.

It is claimed that he will be moving to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid ahead of the coming season but the West London outfit have been reluctant to release the star player.

While report claims that the West London outfit are seeking for 100 million euros to be able to release Eden Hazard, other reports claim that the Spanish La Liga side have already stepped forward with and it was rejected on two occasions because it was short of the required 100 million euros.

However, keeping Eden Hazard for another year remains a big risk for the Blues team because it might amount to losing him for free at the end of the day.

The major reason why Chelsea have refused to let go of Eden Hazard is that a transfer ban has been handed to the club for breaking the rules.

Chelsea are unsure of finding a replacement for Eden Hazard which is the reason why they are reluctant to let him go.

This, therefore, raises the question of if the Blues team will be ready to keep him for another year, knowing that he will be leaving the club for free at the end of the day.
