A win-win transfer deal for Chelsea?

With reports circulating this morning that Real Madrid are preparing a £120m bid for Eden Hazard, I can’t help but feel that it is maybe time to take the money and run.

I really believe we have outgrown each other and a transfer move will be the best for all concerned.

Hazard without question is a supremely talented footballer when he is on his game; however, I do find myself questioning his commitment and desire at times throughout the course of the season.

Conte rightly came out earlier this week and stated that Eden should score more goals and given his abilities you have to say that Antonio is right. When you see the amount of goals a Mo Salah, Raheem Sterling, or his fellow countryman De Bruyne gets on a weekly basis – it is clear that he is leaving Chelsea short in that department. We do still see his flashes of brilliance in games, but he should really be dominating games more than he does.

I just wonder whether the challenge of moving to Real Madrid may prove the catalyst to motivate Hazard to realise his potential and become and be seen as one of the best players in the world.

I think he has got comfortable and complacent at Chelsea therefore knows a few bad performances won’t get overly noticed – such is the esteem he is held among supporters – however he wouldn’t be afforded a similar luxury at Real Madrid where you are scrutinized on a game by game basis. The pressure maybe exactly what he needs and he certainly wouldn’t look out of place there.

As for Conte, it would be a welcome injection of funds to help get his squad in check as we fast approach the business end of the season – where the honours are one.

Clearly Chelsea would not sell to any of their rivals like Man United, City or Liverpool.

Looking at Real Madrid there would certainly be players who could be included in such a deal – with Isco springing to mind straight away. Our Italian boss is clearly not satisfied with the squad at his disposal and £120m would certainly go a long way to targeting 2 or 3 top class players to the club.

Don’t get me wrong it will be sad to see Hazard leave – given what he has achieved at the Bridge – but if allows us to bring in hungry and fully committed players into the club then we are going to be in a far better situation for it.
