Of the 25,678 chelsea loanees, Thorgan Hazard is a curious case. His transfer itself was a bit of a surprise, given Eden choosing Chelsea, the opportunities that young Thorgan would get at Chelsea were going to be few and far apart. He was sent out on loan to Zulte Waregem in the Jupiler Pro League.
Thorgan had a great first spell at the Belgian club,prompting Chelsea to send him back on loan. As mouthwatering a prospect it is to see both the Hazards line up for Chelsea soon in the future, Chelsea's depth in the attacking band means Thorgan will have a tough time making the cut at Chelsea. So is Thorgan being left out ? Not quite. These are his recent quotes via Inside Futbol
"Chelsea people regularly come to Waregem to analyse my situation", he explained to Het Nieuwsblad.
"They ask me how I feel, tell me about my matches. I really feel that Chelsea believe in me.
"The proof of this was that the English did not want to sell me to Anderlecht or Genk [in the summer].
"I also had a good discussion with Jose Mourinho.
"I did not know how to behave in front of him. He immediately put me at ease though and explained that he watched the title-decider between Anderlecht and Zulte Waregem.
"This proves that he follows me."
While Thorgan is probably not anywhere near Eden right now, it will be interesting to see what happens in the coming seasons. We've also played the Jose Mourinho Jedi Mind Trick on the youngster as well.
Will it be another Emenalo Masterstroke of Belgian proportions. Whatever happens we'll get to see more of this with the Hazards in our squad!!!
Time to Buy Ethan and Kylian now!!
