Chelsea 'powerless to prevent Eden Hazard exit'

Chelsea 'powerless to prevent Eden Hazard exit'

The 2018 FIFA World Cup victor has been heavily linked with a move to Los Blancos over the past year, with speculation on the increase after both Pogba and Real coach Zinedine Zidane spoke of their admiration for one another recently.

The report states that Real Madrid's interest in Paul Pogba is just being used by the player to engender a better deal for himself at Manchester United while it is unlikely that Tottenham will part ways with Christian Eriksen.

The former Manchester United player sang the praise of Roy Hodgson during an interview with Starsport.

Hazard has previously spoken of his desire to play for Madrid, while Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri accepts it will be hard to hold on to the Belgian if he wants to leave.


The Old Trafford outfit have a reputation among agents as a club who deduct from salaries if they fail to reach the Champions League group phase.

But Hazard said he was not interested in discussing what the future holds as the club chases a Champions League place - either through the Premier League top four or through victory in the Europa League, saying he has "another month" with the club.

"I always say that Madrid must have the best players, as this is the best club in the world", Casemiro replied when asked about the potential arrivals of Pogba and Hazard.

"Results haven't always been great, [there has been] a lot of criticism of the style of play", he added.


"Of course not", the 27-year-old said.

Gareth Bale and Marcelo have been targeted for criticism from Madrid fans this season, but Casemiro defended the pair. We have seen in the last market window every price I think.

"We should not talk about Marcelo's season, as we have all failed collectively".

Since the Norwegian took the job, Pogba has scored nine goals and assisted a further seven in 19 games but according to French publication, Les Parisien the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor wants out.
