Eden Hazard Is The One Star Chelsea Can’t Afford To Lose This Summer!

Eden Hazard was once again the difference maker for Chelsea as they claimed the FA Cup in a win over Manchester United at Wembley.

There’s no doubt that ‘The Blues’ have plenty of stars in their squad but the Belgian maestro is the world class diamond in Chelsea’s ranks.

Every summer sees the attacker linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge. La Liga giants Real Madrid are constant admirers, while recently Premier League champions Manchester City have been credited with a serious interest in the creative talent.

In the past, Chelsea have managed to keep hold of their number one star but that might not be easy this summer.

The London side didn’t managed to break into the top four in England’s top flight and that obviously means the club won’t be in the illustrious Champions League next season, that’s the second time in the last three years they’ve failed to qualify for UEFA’s elite competition. You’ve got to imagine an ambitious footballer like Eden wants to add a Champions League winners medal to his CV.

While other players have struggled this term, Hazard has been consistently very good.

In fifty-one appearances this term, Eden managed to grab seventeen goals, at least seven assists and he won eleven man of the match awards.

He holds onto the ball with ease as his close control is superb. Only Neymar and Lionel Messi made averaged more successful dribbles per game.

The forward glides across the turf, makes lovely key passes, withstands heavy challenges and he seems to easily find space as he moves freely around the opponents half of the pitch.

The twenty-seven year old is an extremely smart footballer, he’s not selfish and he links up well with main strikers.

He’s a game changer, even in the biggest of occasions and that’s the reason why Chelsea can’t afford to sell the world class operator. They will want to win trophies again next year and look to regain their Premier League crown and to do that they’ll need a player like Hazard; a leader who can lead by example.

You’d imagine only a huge summer spending spree and maybe a change in manager will be enough to convince Eden Hazard to stay at Chelsea. He will want to feel as though the side can challenge again for the title next season and beyond.

He recently said:

“Look, I’m going to finish the season first, then play the World Cup and then I’ll leave on holiday,”  

“We’ll see what happens next. I haven’t thought about it yet; I have another two years’ contract with Chelsea. I am very happy. I just think about the end of the season and the World Cup.”

Chelsea will hope that he is ‘very happy’ at The Bridge and that will be enough to have him blank any potential suitors that may come calling for Hazard this summer.
