Reports: Chelsea could be forced to sell Eden Hazard because of Financial Fair Play
What’s the story?
Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for a while now but it seems as though the Blues might be forced to sell him in the summer to comply with Financial Fair Play
In case you didn’t know…
The Blues lost their last match against Manchester City by a whopping margin of six goals. As a result, they now find themselves at number six. This comes after Eden Hazard openly admitted last October that playing for Real Madrid is a dream for him.
“Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club. We will see. I don’t want to talk about this every day. I don’t have time but we will talk about my future soon,” Hazard had said.
Heart of the matter
And now, AS claim that Chelsea being out of the Champions League spot means that they would have to sell one of their star players in the summer to comply with FFP, should they fail to qualify for the elite European competition for the second season in a row.
The report further states that Hazard is the player that stands out because of his desire to play for the Galacticos.
Rumour probability rating: 6/10
While Eden Hazard might be keen on leaving Chelsea for Real Madrid, it is simply hard to digest the thought that the Blues will have to comply with FFP by selling one of their best players – especially when they haven’t really spent much in the recent past.
Eden Hazard will look to help Chelsea qualify for the Champions League and should he fail to do it, a move to Madrid might be on top of his priority list.
