Eden Hazard

The club should find his replacements way sooner like Liverpool did with Coutinho. He left, but they had Salah, Mane, Firmino. 

People say we will become more of a team and play better. But who will lead us? Pedro? Willian? Inexperienced CHO or Pulisic? You are taking a piss if you think Eden departure will make us better. 

We dont have players that underperform because of Eden. And then they will unleash their true potential once Eden leaves. Nonsense. If anything this team overperforms because of him. If Eden left, maybe with quality striker, at least his regular goals would get us out of shit, but we dont even have that. 

I think Eden departure is inevitable, but I hope for a miracle that he stays. 

With this current group of players, take Hazard out of the team and it will make a huge difference in my opinion for the worse because we just don't have the all round quality at present.

There is the possibility that a couple of players may "step up" in Hazard's absence. There is no doubts that when we're chasing a game or trying to find a winner that the team play almost on autopilot at times in getting the ball to Hazard and expecting him to do something. I think players like Barkley and RLC have the right mentality to try and take on more responsibility in driving the team forward should Hazard leave, but neither will replicate his output and raw stats (not to mention completely different roles within the team). Same with Willian, he may be improved in a regular role on the left and we may possibly get more out of him but it won't be anywhere near the level we have had from Hazard.

The biggest issue to address is a striker. Hazard shouldn't be relied upon to be the main source of goals at the club, his goals should be a fine supporting act to a striker scoring 18-20 a season. 

We will not replace Hazard if we try to in my opinion. His skill set is extremely unique. What we can do is share his responsibilities out throughout the squad but we still need more quality overall for this.

Zinedine Zidane says Gareth Bale, 29, and Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard, 28, who has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu, would be compatible in the same team. (Marca)

It's a crime equivalent to Jack the Ripper if they let Eden go.
The thing to do with this man is abduct him and throw away the key.

Look at Barca.
Messi is their top player, 12 years now. It's a remarkable feat for any football player, especially for an attacker.
Heve you seen Barca lately ?
Ernesto Valverde is into rotation and when Messi is not playing the team is shite.
With Messi gone, Barcelona will win their next primera title after 85 years.

This man (Eden Hazard) must n't go.
We were lucky because when Didier and Lamps were on their way out we found Eden Hazard.
Obviously we have to find a new Hazard sooner or later, or we become a mid-table side.
But as things stand we cannot finish higher than 8th-9th next season if he goes.

I'm sorry but that's hyberbole.

He leaves we still finish no worse than 6th. Even without him our team is still better than the states Liverpool and Spurs got themselves in a few years back and they always finished top 6/7 apart from one exception with Liverpool.

It would have made sense to hope that Hazard stays if the board was building / re-building for the future because someone like Hazard is the integral part of the setup/transition 

However currently we arent doing anything on those lines, infact the team/board/manager everyone are piggy banking on Hazard to pull them out and win things. In the current situation, for Hazard who is in his prime and with Madrid along with Zidane calling he has to go. 

Yes we will crumble and the board needs to feel that pain to start acting and it is high time that we find our new Hazard.

I dont mind finishing outside of the top 4 for the next 2 seasons if we can ensure that the next 4 seasons we win more than 3 titles & are fighting it out on all level to be the number 1.

The Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws says it is certain now that Hazard will play his last (EPL) home game on Stamford Bridge today.

Hazard has a deal with Real Madrid and Chelsea grants him his transfer for the right amount, and both clubs are getting closer to a deal.

He and his family will walk around the field after the game to thank the fans for the wonderful time at Chelsea.

Theyd better offer £100m at least. If they dont want to pay keep him for another year even if it means him going on a free because he will 29 then. Simple as that. Great player for us but again, dont bow down to the likes of Real or Barca, didnt last summer or didnt with Willian either.

I love this line being pedaled by the media that we are holding out for 100 million but Madrid want to pay closer to 85. In what world is hazard not worth over 100 mill? I don't care if he's only 12 months left on his contract. Honestly if they are going to fuck about just keep him and let him go for free the year after

In the last years this club should have created an entire divison dedicated to keep Hazard using any method possible including hypnosis. It should be one of the top priorities of the club.

Some fans only smirk seeing Eden is about to leave, but the fact is he is the only piece that still connects us to being an elite club. Like it or not.

If Madrid are not going to pay above and beyond for him we should just keep Fatty, its hard to replace talent like his so we cant give it to them for a bargain. In a world were Pulisic goes for 60 million, we better get double that for Hazard even if he has 1 year on his contract. He is the face of the club, his influence goes way past just the pitch. Kids buy new kits every year because of him, some people renew season tickets just to watch him play, people visit Stamford Bridge to watch him so i hope Marina takes Madrid to the cleaners for Hazard.
