Chelsea is reportedly ready to reject approaches from Real Madrid and Barcelona for Eden Hazard and are confident they can hold on to their star man for at least another season.
Chelsea is willing to hand Hazard a new contract worth over £300,000-a-week to stay at Stamford Bridge and talks between his representatives and the club are likely to take place over the course of the next week. (Telegraph)

if we sell hazard we have to push for assensio or some1 in exchange for me. also sell tibo before he runs down his contract. sing pickford. if hazard goes we have to get a huge talent like dybala to replace him not fat higuian.

Chelsea working on securing the signings of Rugani, Higuain, Golovin and Alisson, movements next week (@AlfredoPedulla) .

If the above is true then Tibo is as good as gone. Not sure about Higuan yet? Howvmever maybe we get him on the cheap.

Whether he comes or not what do you guys think of Higuain at Chelsea.

Can't say I've watched that much of him since his time in Madrid but obviously he was a goal machine for Napoli and he's scored plenty for Juve albeit I've heard he didn't have the best of seasons this year. I would take him for sure though, we're crying out for a goal scorer which is what he's always been. I think Michy deserves a chance though.

Higuain declined last year at Juventus, and he'll be thirty one in December. He has been a great striker, but he's not the striker we need right now.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 13:32:54
£50 million for a near 31 year old striker that isn’t the most mobile guy in the world, what could go wrong. I’m not a Chelsea fan but he would seem an odd choice to me.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 14:03:14
maybe morata and bats should get the nod next year it was clear to see last year that neither was the mold of striker Diego was and not suited to our style under conte but under sarri could get far more from them why waste money unless you go big for icardi.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 14:54:26
I'd definitely rather stick with Morata and Batshuayi than sign Higuain.

His name keeps coming up, I don't think there's a proverbial snowballs chance in hell the we'll sign him, but the absolute best option for us, if we adopt the same system as Napoli, is Dybala.

Play him in a similar role as Mertens and he'd be amazing.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 17:15:39
Are the players we’re being linked with actually any better than we got
Golovin isn’t an upgrade on what we have
Higuain certainly isn’t imo
And Allison is he actually that good
Given the trust of the manager Barkley could be our Golovin
I’d rather keep Michy n Morata over Higuain
I like the look of the Croat keeper.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:07:27
I'd stick with Morata all day long.

Tibo is overrated.

Golovin is very different to Drinkwater / Barklay. He'd be a good signing

Rugani looks great in highlights, but I've not seen a great deal.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:42:04
Don't fancy Higuain for Chelsea cos of his age. If we can't get Icardi, I prefer we stick with Morata cos I see him improving under Sarri's brand of football. It's nuts to sign a striker like Morata and let him go after one season that was blighted by back problem issues (that affected his form) . The board has to stick with Morata and Batshuayi (can be loaned) .

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jul 2018 21:41:05
And for the first time in 6 years I’m certain Hazard won’t be playing Chelsea blue again. It’s been coming, but I have to say it stings a bit yeah we could replace him and go on to win the league build a great side, but boy did I have a soft spot for that guy. Hope we go for two or three top players. Personally I’d go for two or three of the players on this list obviously the money we get for him could well be used to strengthen the squad as a whole:

Direct or similar replacements
Julian Brandt

Other positions to further strengthen the squad
Milinkovic Savic
Saul Ninguez

We go on, look at Liverpool after having lost Coutinho they spent his money wisely by investing in the squad not just a direct replacement.

Two from the first list and one of the three in the second for example would be great.

Brandt / bailey should be option anyway to cover Pedro, and hazard leaving not few can come in, Asensio be good, maybe Dembele of Barcelona? Dybala, big name has to come in,

Agree2 2Disagree

14 Jul 2018 22:24:41
Good post ELI. Eden Hazard is world world class and like you I'm so sad he might go. 1 (in particular) and 1 or more others on here have doubted his class but what do they know? Always negative. Eden, thanks for the memories and hope you stay.

Agree3 5Disagree

14 Jul 2018 22:49:57
Also noted maybe signing few of these would want to keep him here?

Agree0 3Disagree

14 Jul 2018 23:30:38
Hazard's words doesn't confirm 100% that he's gone - there's still some ifs. Bottom line is that Chelsea has to show more ambition in the transfer window to keep him or succeed without him.
Courtois' instagram response to Lukaku's post sees him call London his home- I wonder what he means by that.
All hope isn't gone, they might still stay or maybe Hazard alone could still stay on at Chelsea. Fingers crossed.

Agree2 2Disagree

14 Jul 2018 23:34:14
I think we're pushing it a bit here about Hazard leaving. It's not as simple as Hazard saying or hinting he wants to go and then he gets sold. It's not easy to sign a star player from another club. Sandro, Koulibaly, De Gea, Griezmann etc should be examples.

It won't be easy for Hazard to leave, it's all good and well Hazard hinting many things, however Real Madrid will have to offer something silly for chelsea to even consider selling him, also how will they feel if we say we want cash + Asensio/ Isco It's not going to be easy at all.

We have signed Jorginho and I'm sure many others will arrive and it will be attacking football under Sarri which is what Hazard wants. Surely if Chelsea play hard ball, RM will back off then Hazard signs a new contract or does he risk waiting. Maybe future signings convince him to stay.

Agree2 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 00:35:21
Let’s hope he doesn’t but if he does we need two star wingers. Bailey should be here anyway to replace either Pedro or Willlan. If Bailey does come Griezmann or Martial has to be the other.

{Ed018's Note - pretty sure Griezmann has come out and said he will stay at Atletico}

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 09:11:49
Yeah it was coming and I don't blame him. He could do with a new challenge. The key is to replace him wisely.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 09:37:17
Eden Hazard - “We knew already for a while that Sarri was going to become the new manager. If he's a good manager? If he let's me win trophies, yes. Dries Mertens has told me he's a good coach. We'll have to work hard. The Italian way, but we were used to that with Antonio too”

I wonder why the media missed this part out and why everyone is overlooking it!

Agree1 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 10:48:31
I personally think that's Eden saving face for if the move doesn't happen Shak, think we all know where he'll be playing if it's up to him and who can blame him? More money, more exposure and more chance of winning the big one! Although as mentioned there will be stupidly high pressure on him to fill one of the best players of all times boots.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 11:05:32
Gold post, and I agree Hazard will leave. To be fare to him he could have gone 3 years ago but was loyal to the club.
We will let him go but on current pricing he is around £180-200 million. Courtoise has got to be 40-50. Could have been more but isn’t he in his last year.
Club have put down a marker beating city to jorghinio.
App looks like rugani is coming"
Personally a big fan of dybala and they need to claw back some cash’s.
Interesting 2-3 weeks.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 10:37:03
Ed, do you think Chelsea would push to include Asensio in any talks over Eden? Surely Asensio wouldn't like spending another season as a non-starter, and Chelsea would need a top talent to replace Eden.

{Ed018's Note - I feel like it’s been mentioned somewhere on here in the past that Asnesio has been part of the discussions Chelsea and Real Madrid has earlier this summer when discussing Hazard.}

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 13:37:16
Could be the compromise, pretty sure they value him at £150m or something but he is bound for great things.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:35:29
I think we need to remeber has Ed002 said on few occasion long ago Chelsea is not a club to stand in the way of any player who wishes to move, if the player is happy and the club get a reasonable deal the player is always allowed to go and rightly so no point keeping somone around who’s heart is elsewhere there only humans. It’s his dream to play for Madrid we’ve had 6 very fortunate years andnare going to make an astounding profit I should imagine if he goes now which I think. Most likely I can only wish him and Courtois nothing but the beat.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:39:14
Why don't Chelsea show 'that ambition' first by adding Leon Bailey to the squad first as it is now and see how it affects Hazard's decision to leave. Whether he stays or goes we must spend on quality players to be successful. If this is Hazard's way of making the club show more ambition in the transfer market, I am completely with him.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:43:54
Yea CFCShak, this quote actually gives us a bit of hope.

Hazard and Courtais both very very close
To going Madrid.

Hazard knew BEFORE World Cup that he would be leaving chelsea.

Tibo refused contract after contract offer.

Courtois is sounding very annoying in this whole saga. I want Hazard to stay but Courtois should be sold if we can get Allison. He should stand by himself and leave Hazard alone.
His recent comments about his worth after his display at this world cup is not good. Chelsea has done extremely well by offering him £200,000/ per week. If he doesn't want it, he should go.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jul 2018 18:14:01
Ed001, I just wanted to ask whether you know of Chelsea trying to sign another winger/ wide attacking player?

Pedro isn't starting caliber, and Willian has shown disrespectful behavior towards his coach (Conte) and is seemingly happy with a potential move to Barcelona if you believe reports. Then there's also Eden possibly leaving for Madrid :- (

Surely Chelsea are trying to sign some attackers? Have seen almost zero rumors. Malcom seems to be available for a decent price (around 40m perhaps) but I've heard of no interest from Chelsea.
Have you perhaps heard anything regarding the attacking spots?

{Ed001's Note - I can't say I have heard of anything concrete mate. Sorry.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

14 Jul 2018 18:33:45
Hmm that doesn't sound promising :- ( Thanks anyway, Ed, it was worth a shot. Better prepare for another season of Pedro/ Willian starting.

{Ed001's Note - I doubt it will be like that, even if it is, Sarri's style of play should get more from them. However I would expect at least one to arrive.}

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 10:34:59
And now it's looking likely Eden will leave. Man, this is not going to end well.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Jul 2018 13:11:44
Hey Ed001,

Do You know if any of the media speculation concerning Jorginho really wanting Man City has any truth to it.

I can't see a situation where a player is forced into joining a side He doesn't wish to so it all sounds like saving face from Man City to Me.

If however there is any truth to this, could We see an embarressing Mikel Obi situation from when it appeared Man. Utd had secured His services only for Him to wind up at Chelsea?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - he does favour a move to City, but it is not a case of being forced to go elsewhere. He loves working with Sarri.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

14 Jul 2018 13:51:05
Cheers Ed001,

Thank for the clarification Mate.


{Ed001's Note - to be honest, I don't know if he would have favoured Citeh had Sarri been in place initially. When he was instructing his reps about the move he wanted, Sarri was still Napoli manager.}

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2018 20:05:06
Chelsea have contract talks setup with Eden Hazard reps. They will try to convince him that the appointment of Sarri, together with a number of new signings including Jorginho, Daniele Rugani and Aleksandr Golovin can help the club challenge for the top titles again (Telegraph) .

Believable3 1Unbelievable

14 Jul 2018 10:31:22
I pray Hazard stays, I really like him a lot. Truly with Sarri onboard, he and the team can become something really special.
With Ronaldo gone- maybe there's little or no assurance that he will get the success that he craves at Real Madrid (that is if he decides to leave) .

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jul 2018 10:33:08
Besides that is a good piece from Matt Law.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jul 2018 10:54:02
Filling ronaldo’s shoes is too much of a task, hazard wouldn’t get the goals or big game performances Madrid fans crave, hnder Sarri as inside forward / wide he could be a star here,

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jul 2018 16:42:55
sky saying Barcelona are trying to sign kante hope the club won't sell if we sell courtous hazard and kante this season I really fear for us going forward.

Believable1 1Unbelievable

13 Jul 2018 18:35:47
We cannot sell Kante at any cost he’s pivotal to us going forward as a club I hope Sarri can persuade him to stay.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Jul 2018 18:41:23
If the supposed offer is true then it's just insulting, they should be paying us more just to take Gomes of their hands. Kante said a couple of months ago that Chelsea's his home and he'll stay so i'm not worried about him. Most likely a effort in getting more money. Courtois is likely off but if we get Alisson to replace him (which looks likely) then i don't mind. Hazard is the big one, so far the club seem to be giving him what he wants. He was the main one that wanted attacking football and better players and we seem to be doing just that so far. If we give him that but he still ends up wanting to leave it'll be a kick in the teeth to the board, so i can't see it happening. But you never know.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Jul 2018 20:07:56
Just to clarify matters, sky said Barcelona are keen on Kante. That is different to wanting to sign him.

I have no fear of Kante leaving, nor do i have fear of Hazard leaving unless Madrid want to pay 200m for a 27 year old.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jul 2018 06:00:07
If Madrid offers £100 million plus Asensio for Hazard, I think we would be have a long think about it. Other than that, accept no less than £150 million.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Jul 2018 10:28:08
i don't think sarri would of taken over unless he had assurances about the star players staying i also think kante is probably worth 150 plus million which i doubt Barcelona can afford so its a deal i wouldn't be worried about personally also why would we sell our star man for cash plus a rubbish player.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jul 2018 21:40:37
The English teams have to Man-up and keep their best players cos it's looking like UCL POWER is about to shift from Spain (the performance of Liverpool at the last UCL; the ambition shown by the Italian teams eg. Juventus; and the performance of the EPL players in this World Cup is proving it) . I pray our best players stay on at the club cos the tuft is about to become less green in Spain.

We should try and get Dembele from Barcelona in any deal for Willian. Unlikely but we should try!

Agree2 2Disagree

14 Jul 2018 15:54:52
Reports are Andre Gomes as part of a cash plus player, obviously I don’t want either to leave but the club need to stand firm similar to what Liverpool done with coutinho.
Barca Real Madrid or PSG need to pay through the roof or tell them isco or varane plus ££, verrati plus ££ or Suarez plus ££.
