Belgian left winger, Eden Hazard, is set to continue with his place at Stamford Bridge despite his disappointing season at Chelsea. They player won the won the prestigious PFA Young Player of the Year award in the 2013/2014 season with The Blues before going on to win the very coveted PFA Player of the Year award.
This season the Belgian rising star has experienced a shambolic season and it is testament to how far he has fallen that many Chelsea fans wouldn’t be too sad to see him leave Stamford Bridge. The player’s influence used to be very heavy in games and this helped them lift the English Premier League just last season. This season he doesn’t even have a Premier League goal to his name. He didn’t score in the UEFA Champions League as well until they were knocked out by PSG. So far, he has only two FA cup goals this season and they remain his total goals in all competitions this season for Chelsea.
The talented player signed from French club, LOSC Lille in 2012/2013 season played 5 years of impressive football at the French outfit before his 40 million Euros move to the Bridge. During the last summer, after his performance, Real Madrid and PSG were interested in signing the player but with his current run, they will surely think twice before going ahead with any deal.
The real reason for the slump form the player is not known. Could it be he has grown tired of Stamford Bridge and its politics and new surroundings could breathe new life into the player? He still commands a huge transfer deal with his current market value still hovering around 70 million Euros.
Coach Guus Hiddink recently revealed he is basically fully fit, was “very lively” and should be ready to make his first start in six weeks. Hazard has been sidelined by a series of injuries for most of Hiddink’s tenure, the latest of which was a reoccurrence of the hip injury he picked up in December.
