Thorgan Hazard letting Chelsea and Borussia Monchengladbach decide his future

Thorgan Hazard is the calm center of his soon-to-be tumultuous buy-back clausal universe.  As we learned last week, Chelsea's option to repurchase our former player and Eden Hazard's younger brother is expiring very soon, but given the low price rumored for said clause, around €15m, it would be quite the missed opportunity to not do so -- even if we do it purely as a business proposition.

When asked last week about a potential deal, Thorgan gave a fairly diplomatic answer, saying that he's focused on and happy at Borussia and not thinking about anything else.   In his latest interview with SportBild in Germany, he's doubled down on that position.

"I think nothing of it. The issue has come up in the media again, and it will probably do so more if I play well and score goals. However, in the end, it's a matter between clubs. I haven't spoken with anyone from Chelsea, and I'm glad to be a Borussia player."

The second of four Hazard brothers may not be the big name signing to shake the transfer world either this January or next summer, but could be a very smart (re-)purchase by the club.
