Chelsea would reportedly demand a world-record fee in exchange for talisman Eden Hazard this summer. Quite right, too.
When Neymar signed for PSG last summer for a reported £200M, we wondered if that figure would ever be matched or beaten.
Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid to sign for Juventus, but that was for half the amount that Neymar moved for a year prior.
There may well be just two players in the world who are capable of dethroning Neymar as the most expensive player on the planet. His teammate Kylian Mbappe, and Eden Hazard.
Mbappe is already the second most expensive footballer ever, if he moves again at any point in his career, you’d think that it would be for around what PSG spent on Neymar.
With Hazard sending a ‘come and get me’ plea to Real Madrid, Chelsea fans are now losing sleep over the prospect of him departing.
According to Matt Law, Chelsea will demand £200M in exchange for the 27-year-old. That’d be a joint world-record fee. It’s unclear whether Real would be prepared to pay that.
Make sure you’re still getting your full eight-hours until there’s further cause for concern.
