Chelsea’s epic Eden Hazard trade announcement, as Marina Granovskaia considers a return
Chelsea manager Marina Granovskaia wants Real Madrid player Eden Hazard to return this summer.
Eden Hazard of Real Madrid has been linked with a move to Chelsea. After a glittering career in west London, the Belgian international only came to La Liga in the summer transfer window of 2019. However, he could be set for a big comeback to Stamford Bridge today.
Hazard was sold by Chelsea because he wanted to join Real Madrid.
However, since arriving in Spain, the Belgium international has deteriorated into a shell of his former self.
Hazard has struggled at Real Madrid, where he has failed to live up to Cristiano Ronaldo’s old No 7 shirt and has struggled to make an impact.
Most Real fans want him to leave, believing that the money would be better spent on signing Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.
Chelsea are now in the running for his signature.
According to reports, a deal to bring Hazard back to Real is being worked on, with the club willing to accept a cost of around £50 million to allow him to leave.

So, with that in mind, it’s time to go back to the summer of 2012, when Chelsea initially signed the 30-year-old.
Manchester United were interested in signing Hazard that year.
They’d seen him shine at Lille, where he scored 22 goals in 49 appearances to help the club finish third in Ligue 1.
Chelsea, though, came out on top in the end.
Hazard stated that he would make his decision via Twitter. Then he revealed that he was “signing for the Champions League winner.”

Of course, United was not one of them. Real Madrid had knocked them out of the competition, winning 3-2 on aggregate with Cristiano Ronaldo scored the game-winning goal.
Instead, he was referring to Chelsea, who had triumphed despite the odds being stacked against them.
The Blues had started the season badly, with Andre Villas-Boas sacked and Roberto Di Matteo appointed as a caretaker manager.
Chelsea were eliminated from the round of 16 after a 3-1 loss to Napoli at the Stadio San Paulo, according to “Brinkwire Summary News”.
