    :lol: Yeah, i'm not sure anyone actually working at the club would agree with that...

    I still don't think he has the mentality needed to play at a club like Barcelona or Real Madrid, reckon he'd struggle with the pressure from the fans, the expectations after Ronaldo. He's at a club where there's little pressure on him, it suits him. By all means, could prove me wrong and show that the added pressure is something he thrives on, but the comments his father made about the lack of a "killer mentality" and him never performing two seasons in a row makes me think otherwise. Reckon he'll sign a pretty decent contract extension, making him one of the best paid players in the league.

    You'll sign Pogba

    That's what CR7 wanted(and ultimately we did offer him that, just too late), that's what we'd have to give to Neymar(and we really, really want Neymar). If Hazard's coming off a balon d'or worthy season and asks for that much, i don't see us turning him down.

    You dont have to replace rolando. All you have to do is to makeup for his goals with 2 or 3 players.

    If only he was 3-4 years older and slightly on the wane. We would offer him the contract of a lifetime!

    Also dismissed rumours he would go to PSG. He said the only reason he'd go back to the Ligue 1, is to join Lille, at a later stage of his career.

    So if he doesn’t leave Chelsea he’ll stay at Chelsea? Good update, useful info.

    It's like us with De Gea, you have to just let him go.

    Chelsea aren't going anywhere fast and Hazard has outgrown them.

    It's not that He wants to leave Chelsea, but if Real Madrid come in for him, He wants.

    Fergusson would have extracted the monster of player hidden in him. Ronaldo and Messi should considered themselves lucky to have met great managers early in their career. Very talented player who lack motivation to go up next level. He's undoubtedly the best player in the league when in form.

    I think he'll get a new big contract and end his career at Chelsea.

    Will come down to how much Real Madrid want him and if they're prepared to pay, and who else is available. Looks very likely for the moment they'll get a new manager in the summer too. Other likely Real Madrid options are Neymar or Mbappe, Eriksen, they probably have some lesser known South American / Spanish players on there radar too. Can see a big summer for them and this will be a transitional season.

    Waste of a career, he's good enough to be in a team that makes the semi-finals of UCL every season.

    Given he has a year I think Madrid will come in, they need an injection, hes not old or anything but if he had a long contract I don’t think there’s any way Madrid pay the money for him.

    Are you sure Madrid are going to replicate the exploit of the last 5 years? Don't forget they struggled in the CL between 2002-2010 failing to reach the 1/4 final for 6 consecutive years. Nobody can predict who'll dominate football the next years.

    Anyway Chelsea are still a great club and if they don't mess thing by sacking Sarri, I can see them being among the club ho'll dominate football next years.

    I really think that he will go this time, it looks like his affection towards Madrid is genuine and surely if that was just a money scheme, he would’ve signed a record-breaking deal already.

    Hopefully we’ll be able to catch up with Chelsea at that point.

    Tomorrow he will say, but my love for Chelsea is extreme. I can see myself seeing out my career here.

    He'll stay and sign a great contract with Chelsea. This is just another maneuver straight from the Ronaldo's book on how to get a big new contract by using a big club name. Usually when Madrid and Barcelona want a player, your hear their players and members' propaganda about that player, they'll talk nonsense on how X player is destined to play for them or the thing about the "DNA"; no one talks about Hazard from Madrid side, only Hazard talks about Madrid.

    How much is this guy going to drool over Madrid every now and then to beg them coming for him ? It's ridiculous.

    This story comes up every season but he always end up staying at Chelsea. I was so sure he would leave for Real Madrid after the World Cup.

    I've always thought he'd be perfect for Barca. I'd soil myself if I was facing a Hazard/Suarez/Messi front three as a defender.

    Well the last time Madrid didn't make the semis was 2010. Barca and Bayern also often make them.

    This has been my thought as well. As good as Iniesta was, you put Hazard with Messi and it would be no contest.

    For some reason, I am very inclined to believe that Hazard's recent praise for Mourinho was an act to make amends with his potential 'future' boss.

    Maybe he knows something we don't? Hoping that I am correct :D

    Aye, would have been as perfect a Neymar replacement as they’d have been able to find. Doubt chelsea would have sold, at that point though.

    Not sure. What made Neymar so devastating in that attack was his movement off the ball for Messi's diagnol through balls. Hazard wants the ball to feet too much.

    Very good point. But Hazard could have complimented Messi’s creativity well - also getting Messi on the end to things, I think. But yeah, the Messi ball to Neymar/Alba is synonymous with Barca.

    To avoid side tracking the Pogba thread.

    I don't think because if his contract situation if he doesn't sign then Chelsea will probably be forced to sell him.. It was the same with Cortouis. He forced their hand.

    And Neymar joined PSG because they obliterated the world transfer record. Even Barca were visibly shocked that someone had actually paid that fee.

    In the last 3 seasons Madrid :

    1) wanted Pogba, went to United,
    2) wanted Mbappe, went to PSG,
    3) they are not able to get Hazard from Chelsea and now are doing a Juventus by waiting his contract to expire and get him in a cheap.
    4) weren't able to keep Ronaldo,
    5) Barca lost a player they paid insane money and cheated to get to PSG. This would not be possible 10 years ago.

    Hazard, like Martial is playing with their respective clubs to get a huge contract.
    Courtois is just a cnut who didn't want to leave Spain for 1st.

    Madrid are now buying very young players for relative big money because they can't compete financially with the like of PSG, City, United.

    Hope he doesn’t go to Madrid. The league needs players like Hazard. They make the other games worth watching.
