Eden Hazard

The club's misdemeanours aren't of any bearing to Hazard. I'd be more inclined to think in a similar manner to yourself, if we were in Utd's situation.

He's arguably wanted to leave for 2-3 seasons now, so it's worked out well for both parties right now. Being in his prime or not is neither here nor there.

Constant flirting with RM is something that will certainly tarish his rep to some. I'm one of them tbh, but there ain't loyalty in football anymore.
 

You're kind of contracting yourself. If there's no loyalty in football and Hazard showed no loyalty by leaving us, why the feck are we still praising him and calling him legend?

Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for the past seven years he has put in to the club, but I'm not buying his leaving statement and I'm certainly not happy about him leaving us. People are calling him legend, but from today I'm scratching my head. Yes, he has been a massive servant to the club, one of the highest...but legend?

JT, Drogba, Zola, Osgood, Greaves, Lamps, Cech...those are legends. Giving their all to the club in their primes. You look elsewhere - Henry, Bergkamp, Viriea, Keane, Carragher, Neville, Aguero, Kompany, Gerrard, Messi, Ronaldo (for Real)... those are real club legends who played in their primes. Hazard, still has at least 2-3 years of his prime left and he wants to give it to Madrid.

You also heard it from the horse's mouth that Madrid is the club he wanted to play for since he was a kid. I bet for years he couldn't wait to get his arse out of Chelsea to play for his dream club. He got his wish.

Thank you Hazard, but you're not getting a tear from me and you're not a legend to me. Have fun in Madrid.

Not at all. People are praising him for his output on the pitch and that's something you can't argue with. Only difference is legend having a different meaning to yourself than others.

Whether he is in his prime or not should have no relevance. Do you honestly think the names you mentioned would have stayed put had we been in a similar predicament?
I highly doubt it.

On a side note, didn't Henry push for a move in his prime to Barca or did I dream that up?

I wasn't questioning his output on the pitch. That's why I called him a massive servant to the club. He did give me memories but...so did Torres and other servants.

And again, Courtois when he was here made world-class saves. Won everything with Hazard except for the EL trophies. Why isn't he called a legend? Even if he left on neutral terms, barely anyone would think of him as legend.

Yes, I'm sure Gerrard, Keane, Carragher, Cech and JT would have definitely stayed....

Nope, Henry left when he was dipping.

£130m (if he hits all the add-ons) is brilliant business given he only had a year to go on his contract

This. Absolutely sublime. It is a record deal for Real Madrid the biggest spenders in football and the 5th biggest deal ever in football history as well. Only Mbappe (whose fee could still be eclipsed with bonus payments) coutinho, dembele and Neymar were more expensive and they were bought in their early 20ies or before with their prime ahead of them and in long term contracts. Hazard, 28 years and a few months, with 1 year left and his absolute peak behind him fetching that amount is great business.

He was under 30 when he left. That's normally an attacker's prime years, so I disagree.

Strikers are not all the same you know. Henry was a road runner striker with great shot accuracy. Who else is like him? Anyway, he lost the road runner bit before moving to Barca.

He only scored 12 goals in the season before moving to Barcelona. When before he was banging in 30's a season.

But he did fantastically well for one season with Barca scoring 26 goals but the following? 4.

Hazard has supposedly lost his turn of pace to beat a man according to many around here, so he's on the decline too.

Please don't cherry pick.

Huh? First of all, is Hazard a striker?

Two, who said that?

I'm talking about facets of either player. Where did I bring up positions?

People on here, as I stated. If you wish to search it up, be my guess.

He will likely have the best season or two of his career in spain due to league style and playing with better teammates. 

He is on last year indeed, but far from being after the peak. 

We are not a selling club and Real wanted our best player. The fee had to be big.

Good luck to you, you absolute legend!

If joining RM has been his dream, then fair play to him for fulfilling his dream. Happy for him and happy that we got him at all 7 years ago. Looking forward to seeing how he will perform there.

i never felt so depressed as i feel right now with the sale of Hazard, how can we replace such a player? it will be just like Lamps, we simply can't replace players like that, if only Eden could have stayed longer and cement his legend status :( i feel like crying in a corner now.
