Eden Hazard hasn’t shown any of the top form that led him to be voted the best player in the Premier League last year in this season and his bad performances are starting to upset Chelsea fans.
The Belgian failed to score a goal in the season so far, and we are already in January.
In the last month he suffered two minor injuries that ruled him out of some important games and didn’t help him to find again his top form.
Probably Hazard is also distracted by transfer market rumours, that want him day by day closer to Real Madrid.
The Belgian could join the Blancos in a swap with one of their stars: James Rodriguez has been in Chelsea’s radar for months, but now a new name is on Abramovich’s list: Isco.
The Spanish midfielder hadn’t much consideration from manager Rafa Benitez, that was sacked yesterday.
Everything is in Zinedine Zidane‘s hands: if the new Real Madrid manager will succeed in giving James and Isco both playing time and confidence, the swap will be hard to do.
Real Madrid are the richest club of the world, anyway, and every summer they try to sign a top player to revamp their stunning squad: in case the swap won’t be successful, the Blancos still got money.
And Hazard is valued around £80m. Not so bad for Chelsea, at all.
