As Madrid try to find the real Eden Hazard after a string of injuries and mixed performances, the Belgian’s name resonates in London again. According to AS, several intermediaries evoke a possible return of the star in the club which has been his home for seven years. A very difficult possibility to achieve for economic reasons and because of the wealth of the Blues workforce, filled with players with the profile of Hazard. Abramovich is mostly looking for a center-forward, Haaland if possible.
A difficult operation to perform
The financial question is also essential. Madrid paid Chelsea € 100million in a major deal, with a five-year contract for Hazard, and therefore write off € 20million each summer in their accounts following the transfer. He would therefore have to sell it for at least 60M €. Madrid would be delighted to carry out such an operation, but it is a very high sum for Chelsea, to which we should add the salary increase of Hazard compared to the salary he received in his former training. In short, the interest in such a deal, but finding a concrete outcome is another kettle of fish.
