Chelsea have reportedly set their price for Eden Hazard. The Blues want in excess of £100million for any party involved in pursuing Hazard. The Belgian captain has been linked for long with a move to Real Madrid. It is now being reported that Real Madrid may be considering once again their move for Hazard.
The reason for this is two-fold. First and foremost is the fact that Hazard has been playing below par in the last month or so. He went missing for Chelsea’s biggest clash in the Champions League quarter-finals against Barcelona. He also has not scored or set up a goal in his last 5 matches. This drop in form has alerted Madrid to the dangers of signing Hazard. The Belgian was known to have this “going missing” attribute ever since he joined the Blues. He, however, had banished this evil practice this season until recently.
The second reason is the fee Chelsea are going to charge Real Madrid in the summer. The current transfer window has been stocked up with player transfers happening for ridiculous wages.
