Eden doesn't have a agent ;)

Of course he does. :)

Even if is a relative (who are typically the worst agents to deal with) they are still agents: talk to prospect clubs, praise their player for no reason, and especially negotiate deal on behalf of the player.

I think he's saying Madrid want Neymar and Eriksen.  

[Paco Gonzalez via COPE]: Real Madrid are not planning to buy Hazard in the winter. Rodrygo Goes will join Castilla in January. Real are looking into Eriksen as Modric's replacement and are also discussing about Neymar.

Hopefully they stay away from Hazard. They need goals and that Ronaldo level marketing from Neymar don't they :ph34r:

REAL MADRID WILLING TO PAY €120M FOR HAZARD IN JANUARY

https://readchelsea.com/2018/10/10/real-madrid-willing-to-pay-e120m-for-hazard-in-january/

Thats only £104m and it's in January, which always carries a premium. They will offer even less next summer. We are going to lose over £100m in valuation if he doesn't renew. The board will end up partially destroying the club's future.

There is zero chance they drop the £200 to £250m needed to try and replace Eden plus buy a truly WC striker like Dybala or Icardi.

All the clubs know we will be desperate and will quote us insane prices. Fiorentina will probably want £80m to £100m for Chiesa. I think Icardi's 2 week window release clause in July 2019 will go up to around £120m or so from the £98m it was this last July. Dybala will cost at least £140m to £160m from Juve. Leon Bailey for RW will, if he has another great year, probably be in the Chiesa price range, far above the £65m or so it would have taken to buy him this summer (basically we could have taken the £65m from Barca we turned down for Willian and bought a nine year younger, better player for par in terms of net expenditure).

Instead of sorting these urgent things, the board is ludicrously fucking about offering ageing 30-somethings like Luiz and Willian extensions that will take them close to 34, 35 years old, thus washed up players worth almost zero and offering almost zero to the team by then.

Horrific business over the last 5 years or so when viewed from the big picture perspective. Double digit numbers of massive, window-consuming FAILS on potential buys, ridiculous low ball sales of players who are now global superstars, and shameful purchases of flotsam like Drinkwater, Morata, Bakayoko. Not to mention the Courtois nightmare that will now be duplicated with Eden, but hopefully without the acrimony.

Being professional is one thing but as a fan, I don't think it sits well at all to see your star player constantly talk about moving elsewhere. Have seen fans almost granted Hazard a free pass with his constant flirtation with Real. If this was any other player, he would have been criticized till no end, wouldn't he? Courtois, who was and is still a twat, got hammered for saying pretty much the same things as Hazard, no? 

I think a lot of hate towards Courtois was largely down to two reasons:

1. He failed to show up for pre-season (the main reason and probably the one reason why so many fans are angered)

2. His club performances were seemingly lacking. He had a few goof-ups last season and he was already angering fans at that point.

Hazard's case is no where close to this.

 

And I don't think its that unknown for star players to confess their desire to play elsewhere.

It was well known that Cristiano Ronaldo long favored a move to Madrid. He stayed on for one more season at Manchester Utd, at their request, and out of respect for his club./

That is true but IIRC, Ronaldo didn't remind everyone like every other week that he wanted to go to Madrid, no? We have known for years that Hazard fancies Real but does he need to remind us so many times? It's bad/worrying enough to see your best player want to go elsewhere but I don't think we need to get reminded about it so often and be seen like a second grade club compared to the other one!

Ok, for Christs' sake already. I know he is great and all, but fuck it all if I need to listen to this shit every week for the rest of the season. Real this Real that.

If you don't want to sign contract that's fine, Real M. knows you want them, so shut up already.

We may as well make peace with the fact that he's going to give us a great final season and leave next summer. Just when we may see the absolute best of him he's going to leave and he'll do so for a cut price since it'll be the last year of his contract.

The only positive is that we won't be Courtois'd and will have this whole time to prepare and scout for replacements. Hopefully the club will shop in the top bracket.

Nice of Sky Sports to twist his words completely to one side...

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/oct/11/eden-hazard-real-madrid-ballon-dor-chelsea-transfer-january-football

It was put to him at a media conference with Belgium on Thursday that to win the Ballon d’Or he would have to play in Spain. “That’s why I want to go, maybe,” said Hazard, who was smiling.

Are you Hazard in disguise?

Hazard keeps telling us that he might go to Madrid or he might stay and you keep telling us we should be prepared to see him leave every time. <_<

But but he is Hazard. He can say anything to make us feel inferior to others and get away scot-free...

I'm still 50/50 on this, whether he stays or goes.

I do know that he is irreplaceable.  But, we bought him before he was Hazard as we know him now, we'll have to find another.  

This uncertainty could possibly be the reason that we weren't so keen to let Willian leave this past summer.  Everyone knows he's irreplaceable, so you don't drop all of that money on a ready-made replacement, they don't exist.  If he leaves, we could move Willian over to the left (where he's better) and buy a couple of younger wingers who have the potential to be our main man in the future.

Let's see what happens.  I still think Madrid would prefer to have Neymar.

He can say more shits than other players, of course. But what's enough is enough.

I just puked a little in my mouth at the thought of another year with Willian. We have let go far better talent than this bum.

Try FIVE more years if they give him that 3 year extension. FFS our board are numpty cunts. 

There is a ready-made Hazard replacement 

Mbappe

But zero chance Roman drops that tyoe of quid, especially as we are going to get raped on the Hazard sale and also his visa ban by the UK government.

He needs to sell the club IMHO. We desperately need a new stadium to compete with the other big 10 or so euro clubs revenue-wise as well. We also are going to get burnt to ash if that FIFA 8 max loanee rule comes into effect. We will have to sell over 30 players into an insanely flooded market.

Massively choppy waters dead ahead.

Yeah, you can debate on whether he should or should not talk about a potential move mid-season but IMO that's just who Eden is!

He's been here for so long, and we know he speaks candidly, and lot of times tongue-in-cheek. As long he still performs on the pitch when playing for us, I don't see why we should be too concerned at this point.
