There has been much speculation that Eden Hazard will be wearing a new shirt when next season kicks off. Today, the club announced that he'll be doing just that. Here's their tweet confirming it:
Next season, @hazardeden10 will be our number 10! http://t.co/fUe8GpJEbQ #CFC pic.twitter.com/nThyHznipx— Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) June 3, 2014
Hazard will be giving up the #17 shirt, and donning the #10 once worn by teammate Juan Mata. That's probably a bad sign if you happen to be a PSG fan hoping for a surprise signing, and it's likely great news if you were hoping the Belgian sensation would still be at Chelsea next season.
Unfortunately, many of you already had your #17 Eden Hazard shirts from previous seasons, and you'll now look a bit out of place at Chelsea matches while he's banging in goals wearing #10. I guess it's time to get out the credit card and buy a brand new version.
