The Sun Will Still Come Up After Hazard Leaves Stamford Bridge

As the summer transfer market draws ever nearer, the speculation around Eden Hazard intensifies. At this stage of the season, the frenzy around the Belgian is working in Chelsea’s favour as it takes the spotlight off the fractured relationship between Maurizio Sarri and the fans. The Blues have slowly worked their way back into the top four and have managed to make vital progress in the Europa League.

Lille Star Would Be a Good Replacement for Eden Hazard

It now more or less looks unlikely that Eden Hazard will be remaining with Chelsea beyond this season. The Belgian international has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid. Los Blancos have been poor by their standards this season. They have a number of ageing players in their squad and also failed to secure a direct replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who joined Juventus last summer.

Chelsea Should Consider Spaniard For Manager Role If Sarri Is Sacked

Chelsea have blown hot and cold this season under Maurizio Sarri. Should the worst-case scenario occur and the Blues fail to secure major silverware as well as finish outside the top four, it is likely that the Italian tactician will be sacked. The West Londoners do not have a reputation for having patience with managers and if Sarri fails to meet his requirements, they will not hesitate to dispense with him.

Chelsea Must Renew Contract of Veteran

Chelsea have been slapped with a two-window transfer window ban by FIFA after they were found guilty of contravening FIFA policy in their signing of youth players. The news means that the Blues will have to think carefully about how they operate this summer. They may have to keep certain players in the squad who they may have been planning to let go of this summer. One such player is substitute goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Chelsea Must Resolve Hazard Situation Sooner Rather Than Later

Uncertain revolves around the future of Chelsea star Eden Hazard. The Belgian’s contract with the club is due to expire in the summer of 2020 and he has yet to sign a renewal. This essentially means that if the playmaker does not sign a contract extension, the club will risk losing him for a bargain fee next January or if the worst-case scenario arises, on a free transfer at the end of next season.

Chelsea Extending the Stay of Striker a No-Brainer

Chelsea were recently dealt a major blow as they were slapped with a transfer ban until January 2020 after being found guilty for breaking rules in terms of signing foreign players under the age of 18. World football governing body FIFA claimed that it found breaches in 29 cases of 92 investigated, notably that of Bertrand Traore who left the Blues in 2017 in order to link up with French club Lyon.
