Eden Hazard has remained on Chelsea’s radar since last summer and it appears he could be finally heading back to Stamford Bridge by January
Real Madrid on their own are already fed with Eden Hazard’s constant injuries with Ancelotti also stating that no one is even more tired of this occurrences than Hazard himself.
The former Chelsea man is yet to find his form since joining Real Madrid in a mega €150m move following his series of disturbing injuries.
With Chelsea now said keen to finally land him back at the club following believes by Roman Abramovic that the 30-year-old would rediscover his form if he returns, Real Madrid were said to be making huge demands.
A demand that Chelsea clearly won’t give ear to and that was wanting Reece James in exchange for Eden Hazard which clearly got a resounding ‘No’ from the West Londonders.
Having already made mention that she would only be willing to spend at most £34m to seal Hazard’s return, Marina Granovskaia seems to have other alternative plans to help secure Hazard’s return.
The latest reports are already pointing towards three Chelsea stars of which Marina has told Real Madrid they can choose from.
1. Kepa Arrizabalaga: The Spaniard goalkeeper having lost his place to Edouard Mendy, didn’t fail to make known of his important when the side faced Villarreal in the Super Cup finals.
He was so brilliant when brought at the last minutes prior the penalty shootout which his fine saves handed Blues the trophy.
Marina Granovskaia believes Kepa heading the other way round could help secure Eden Hazard’s return but that would only be if Real Madrid agrees to this.
Courtois is a good keeper who appears to be in a prime form but taking in Kepa Arrizabalaga could be an idea Florentino Perez won’t feel bad about.
The 27-year-old is even experienced with the La Liga has he made 53 league appearances for Atletico Bilbao before leaving for Chelsea back in 2018. He also has made 11 appearances for Spanish National Team but due to lack of game time at Chelsea lost his national place to David De Gea.
Real Madrid already lost certain fine keepers to other clubs and landing Kepa Arrizabalaga as back up to Courtois could prove to be a worthy for offloading injury-prone Eden Hazard.
2. Antonio Rudiger: This name could come as a shock for readers but it’s just what it has to be for both the German and Chelsea.
Considering Rudiger’s demand for £400k per week pay, Chelsea are finding it difficult to balance a deal between them and the defender.
Of a truth, Rudiger has been a very influential and productive member of the Thomas Tuchel era but asking for £400k per week seems way too off for Chelsea.
This would see him earn past Lukaku’s £325,000 per week pay and becoming the highest paid Chelsea member.
Although it’s understandable that Rudiger wants pay increase as he currently earns below a bunch of Chelsea stars but £400k per week is just a ‘no no’ for Marina Granovskaia.
The Director has in turn fixed Rudiger as part of her plans to help secure a move for Hazard back to Stamford Bridge.
Marina believes Rudiger could be a very tempting offer Florentino Perez can’t afford to miss out on, given the current defensive state of Los Blancos.
Rudiger on his own won’t likely turn down an opportunity to go play for Real Madrid as he knows he would likely get close to what he demands from Chelsea even if not the exact same amount, but that would mostly be up to him and Real Madrid to iron out in their discussion if the deal gets to happen.
3. Ross Barkley: Marina Granovskaia sees Barkely as another name that could tempt Florentino Perez.
Although having had series of set backs too, Barkley doesn’t suffer injuries like Hazard do. The 27-year-old is infact one of the players who are considered physically strong.
