Chelsea will not rule out the idea of Eden Hazard, the club’s former number ten, returning to the club, according to sources.
Hazard moved to Real Madrid in 2019 for a sum in excess of £100 million, including add-ons.
He has subsequently failed to have the same effect in Spain as he did in England, making fewer than half the amount of appearances for the Spanish giants each season as he did for Chelsea, owing mostly to injury.
According to El Nacional, Real Madrid CEO Florentino Perez is eager on keeping strong connections with Chelsea, since the club believes the Belgian striker has a future with the club.
Chelsea has spent the previous two seasons looking for a striker to replace Hazard, who has shown to be just as dangerous in front of goal.
The Blues spent £97.5 million for Romelu Lukaku this summer after Timo Werner’s deal in summer 2020 didn’t go as planned. Lukaku has been on a goal drought lately.
In the midst of Chelsea’s quest for a goal scorer, speculation regarding Erling Haaland joining the club has resurrected after Thomas Tuchel recently talked highly of him.
The Blues, on the other hand, have already shown that they can score with any player this season, with 30 goals scored by 17 different players.
Despite Chelsea’s tremendous offensive capabilities, particularly from wide areas, Hazard would definitely be welcomed back with open arms at Stamford Bridge.
