Hazard heading back to Chelsea, Blues get Grealish boost and Rudiger to hold contract talks in Chelsea roundup…
Reports have claimed that Real Madrid are now willing to listen to offers for Chelsea icon Eden hazard in the summer window.
After years and years of speculation, Chelsea finally decided that they would allow Hazard to leave the club in 2019 after he pushed for a move to Madrid, and in the end, they managed to get £130 million for the players services.
However, Hazard has struggled with multiple injuries during his time in La Liga, and delivered an anonymous display in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday evening which sealed Madrid’s elimination from the Champions League.
Hazard angered many connected with Madrid after television cameras caught him laughing and joking with his former Chelsea teammate Kurt Zouma just minutes after the final whistle. But the Belgian has since apologised for his conduct but according to Marca, Madrid’s hierarchy have decided that they are ready to listen to offers for the 30-year-old this summer.
The reports also suggest that Madrid will be willing to accept just £43 million for Hazard in the summer, and it is claimed that Chelsea may he interested in a deal.
The Blues have been linked with Hazard over the past few months a few times, and even though he didnt really feature in the Champions league loss to Chelsea, he is still seen as a real icon at the Bridge.
There will always be talk of Hazard making a move back to Chelsea, fans love him. But the club have moved on from him now and he is clearly not the same player he was at Chelsea, he looks like a man that is done at the top.
Fans would welcome him back because he is Hazard, but it would not be a good move for the club.
Agent Jonathan Barnett reveals his client Jack Grealish is happy at Aston Villa, but has admitted that there could be a deal in store for the likes of Chelsea.
Despite the fact that Jorginho has been playing some decent football over the past few weeks, there is still alot of rumours in the media about his long-term future at the London giants.
It is no secret that he has a dream to head back to Italian football, and it is no secret that Juventus are also keen on trying to secure a transfer deal, so the Italian has options if he does decide to leave the club, meaning that Chelsea need a new player.
And that has led to constant reports in the media that Grealish is a player that Chelsea are very keen on trying to sign, especially as the midfielder has become one of the most sought after players in the Premier League over the past few months
And amid all the speculation linking the midfielder with a move to The Premier League giants, Barnett has admitted that Grealish is happy at Villa right now, but stopped short of admitting he will stay there in the summer
“He loves Villa, but I think we just have to wait to see how things pan out,” he said.
“At the moment he is a Villa player and he has had no thoughts about anything else.
“We have to do what is best for Jack and for everybody else.”
We have said it before, if Chelsea manage to secure a transfer deal for Grealish, it would be a great move for the player to make
Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger will hold talks about his future at the end of the season.
Rudiger was a player that was struggling for game time under former boss Frank Lampard and there was alot of speculation in the media that he would be a player that could get sold at the end of the season.
However, Tuchel took over from Lampard just a few months ago and the German boss has turned this Chelsea side into one of the best, with Rudiger becoming a big part in Chelseas FA Cup and Champions League runs
However, his contract is up in the summer of 2022 and there has not been any talks with Chelsea about agreeing a new contract, which has again led to speculation that Chelsea may opt to let him leave at the end of the season.
However, Reports on Sky Sports have claimed that Rudiger does indeed want to stay at Chelsea, but he wants to wait until Thomas Tuchel’s long-term future is sorted before deciding on his own future.
Tuchel’s contract – like Rudiger’s – runs until next summer and there has also been no talks with the board about extending his stay at the club.
Sky Sports News has learnt Rudiger would have been allowed to leave in January if he had signed a one-year extension to his contract. Rudiger decided to stay amid interest from PSG, Tottenham and AC Milan as he believed he would get playing time – even under Lampard.
Rudiger has proven himself to be a very good player for Tuchel over the past few weeks, so the news that he has not agreed a new contract will worry fans. But there is plenty of time.
