Chelsea are reportedly prepared to include Eden Hazard in any potential deal to sign Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale.
Speculation linking Bale with a spectacular move to Stamford Bridge in the upcoming transfer window refuse to go away. The Welshman is still one of the best in his position in the world, even if his stock in the football world has fallen since his move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Bale is the kind of player we ought to be targeting if we are serious about closing the gap between ourselves and champions Manchester City. However, the idea of sacrificing Hazard in order to secure his services should not be entertained.
As per Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda has claimed that Antonio Conte’s men would be prepared to include the Belgian in a swap deal to sign Bale. He’s quoted by the Express saying:
“Chelsea would be willing to do the Hazard operation with Real Madrid if Gareth Bale enters.”
“Real Madrid or Chelsea could have to give money to close the operation, but the priorities of the two parties have been clear.”
It remains to be seen how reliable Inda is, but we can’t imagine that he knows what he’s talking about on this particular story. Hazard is our talisman, our headline act, he’s a fan-favourite – he’s going nowhere.
