Eden Hazard’s transfer to Real Madrid will place Chelsea in a bad position for next season.
Recently confirmed, Hazard has been looking towards moving to Madrid in the Summer. This would be a game changer for Chelsea, since Hazard managed to score or assist 31 of the 62 league goals for them. Chelsea wouldn’t have qualified in Champions League this year if it had not been for Hazard’s efforts for the team.
Hazard’s move to Madrid might be better for him as someone who creates plays through dribbling. He’d have assistance creating opportunity with players like Luka Modric, Marco Asensio and Marcelo.
This would be a good game changer for Madrid after Cristiano Ronaldo’s switch to Juventus last year.
It would also make the El Classico game against Barcelona more interesting. With Hazard’s ability to dribble well and create lots of changes in the game it would be an interesting match to see.
There is also the possibility of Antoine Griezmann transferring from Atlético de Madrid to Barcelona. Griezmann’s fast pace and ability to lay off balls well could be a really good thing for Barcelona.
However, Atletico’s manager, Diego Simeone, is “not afraid” of losing Griezmann.
If he switched he would get a cut in paycheck and would also have to face a probability of a lot of bench time. With having to compete with Suarez, Messi and Dembele for forward, the chances of him sitting bench would be high. Dembele hasn’t seen much of the field this season, which would lead some to believe this would be the same for Griezmann.
There is also talk of Coutinho’s possibility of moving to Chelsea after his rocky season with Barcelona this year. But, this would rely on Hazard’s decision and also FIFA’s two-window transfer ban on Chelsea.
If Hazard, Griezmann and Coutinho’s switch managed to happen it would be a major change for the teams, but mostly Chelsea.
On the other hand, Christian Pulisic just finished his last game with Dortmund on Saturday, May 11. After five years he scored one last time on the home field before his switch to Chelsea. His quick style of play is going to compliment Chelsea’s counterattack style of play. This will be good if Hazard does decide to leave for Real Madrid.
Hazard doesn’t see Chelsea’s ability to place high in next year’s Premier League or in Champion League honors as of right now. This would seem to be a bad thing for Hazard if he was staying and not have the ability to grow as a player at a team like Real Madrid.
