So young Eden, fresh from a 27" hattrick in his final game for Lille has been talking to the media. Worse than that, he's been thinking.
Here's what he said:
"Chelsea is qualified for the Champion's League next season and that's what I wanted about my future destination. It makes me think" Source: https://twitter.com/#!/Bruno_Constant
We also have Phillipe Auclair saying this:
I'm with @Bruno_Constant on Hazard: fancy Chelsea to nick it/him. NOTHING DONE YET. It'd make sense, that's all. No 'inside info' etc. Source: https://twitter.com/#!/PhilippeAuclair
Apparently players are interesting in clubs who win things rather than ones that qualify for the Champion's League every year! Who'd have thought it.
Well anyway, that puts the cat amongst the rat-birds. He's clearly a prize bull-pooer but what a talent he is. Badly advised or not, poor character or not, Chelsea should seriously consider trumping offers from Manchester and offering guarenteed playing time on the left (which City won't be able to do).
The guy is 21 years old and already by far the best player in Ligue Un (sorry Mr Pastore). He's clearly a supreme talent and may get even better.At the moment Ramires is excelling as an all action winger, Juan Mata is continuing to exist as Juan Mata, we have the possibilty of buying a striker who scores consistently, and some excellent youth talent. If we bought Hazard, we'd have a frightening forward line for the first time in years and a much more exciting one too.
