Ronaldo out! Hazard in at Real Madrid?


  • Hazard now hot on the market for big clubs after an impressive fit at the just concluded Russia 2018.
  • Real Madrid in desperate search of a replacement for CR7 and Chelsea’s Hazard is top of their bucket list.

This summer transfer window could finally end up as one where Chelsea fans have a lot of their expectations being met, although there is the possibility that the club might lose their talisman in the same window.

Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Juventus some few days back, and before then, reports had always linked Chelsea’s superstar attacker Eden Hazard with a move to the Bernabeu.

The Belgium international has apparently not helped matters in terms of his chances of remaining at Chelsea with the impressive performances he’s put in for Belgium in the Russia 2018 World Cup. A development which would surely make suitors believe he is ready for the biggest of challenges.

Real Madrid will be out for a replacement for Ronaldo this summer and three stars in the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Eden Hazard have been suggested as possible replacements for the Portuguese goal-machine at the Bernabeu.

A move for Eden Hazard by the Los Blancos appears very likely at the moment, and the player will definitely not turn down a move to Real Madrid going by how he has been speaking much about the Spanish giants recently.

Chelsea’s absence from the UEFA Champions League, a competition that the Belgian is eager to win doesn’t help matters either. To compound it, the heartbreak he suffered from the Belgium team as they missed out on the World Cup final could also spur him on to move onto relatively bigger and better things with Real Madrid if they come calling.

It can be recalled that Kylian Mbappe and Neymar joined Paris St. Germain last summer, and therefore, getting the oil-rich Ligue I giants to part with their priced assets won’t be easy for the Los Blancos, as PSG also have an eye on a triumph in the UCL.

Therefore, Real Madrid could be forced to go all out for Hazard who has proven consistently over time that he can cut it at the big stage. The player has spent many years at Chelsea and is at the peak of his career. It is so obvious that he’ll switch to the Bernabeu if an offer comes.

Chelsea fans must be prepared for a possible life without Hazard in the 2018/19 season, as Madrid will be hot on the heels of potential replacements for Ronaldo, and we all know that the Los Blancos hardly take no for an answer.

This move looks likely, but Blues faithful will be ecstatic if Hazard decides to remain at Stamford Bridge, regardless of how unlikely it seems at the moment.
