If Eden Hazard is to leave Chelsea next summer, there’s no way he will go for anything less than $200 million. Transfer fees paid for Neymar ($263 million) and Ousmane Dembele ($130 million) last summer, and the deal lined up for Kylian Mbappe ($222 million) plus Philippe Coutinho being valued at close to $200 million, has shown that when it comes to world-class attackers, the market is hugely inflated right now. Yet a report from the Sun suggests that Manchester United and Jose Mourinho plan to snap up Eden Hazard for $120 million next summer. It is seriously tough to believe Chelsea will let Hazard, who has a current contract through the summer of 2020, leave for anywhere near that fee, especially as the 26-year-old will be entering his prime. The Belgian ace is reportedly stalling on signing a new $400,000 per week deal at Chelsea, with Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane a huge fan of Hazard and the 2018 World Cup may give the Chelsea winger a perfect platform to prove he is the next superstar after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
