Eden Hazard has already dropped Chelsea transfer hint as Real Madrid set fresh price-tag

Published

Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard has already hinted at where his next move will be amid recent reports linking him to a Premier League return.

Hazard, 30, has had a torrid time in the Spanish capital since sealing his ‘dream’ £100million move to Los Blancos from Chelsea, but a mixture of different injuries, coupled with struggling to adapt to the style of football, has led to claims he could look to leave.

There were reports in October suggesting that Marina Granovskaia had opened ‘informal talks’ to bring the winger back to the Blues on Roman Abramovich’s orders, but not a lot has happened since then regarding a potential west London return.

In fact, other Premier League clubs have reportedly made more progress in bringing Hazard back to England with Newcastle, Everton and West Ham providing stern competition to Chelsea in this aspect.

And what will encourage all teams who are planning to put Hazard out of his Spanish nightmare is what Real Madrid have done to make a January transfer more viable for interested parties.

As per the Sunday Mirror, Hazard has reportedly been told he can leave in a deal that could only generate a mere £21m as Carlo Ancelotti’s side look to cut their losses. This seems about right, as Transfermarkt similarly value the forward – who is under contract until 2024 – at only £22.5m.

If Hazard was to be sold for that fee, it would represent a whopping £82.5m loss for the Spanish giants, who splashed out a reported £103.5m on the injury-prone winger.

On top of those reports of a lowered fee, Hazard’s own previous admission on a possible Premier League return could give the Blues a big advantage over the trio of other interested clubs.

Hazard said back in 2018: “When I finish here [Madrid] I’ll come back [to Chelsea].

“I do my job here and then I come back.”

It also appears to be a move that would be welcome by manager Thomas Tuchel, who has already given his verdict on the Belgium international.

“He is a top-quality player and a key player for many years at this club and this league, the hardest in the world,” Tuchel said last season. 

“So consistent. I have the biggest respect for him. He is a big player, we have many people here who know him well. He was a key player for this club now he plays for Real Madrid.”

Hazard has only made 11 appearances so far this season in all competitions for Real Madrid, with only one goal contribution. In comparison, he made a total of 352 appearances in the Blues jersey, scoring and assisting a total 202 goals in his seven-year stay in the capital.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
