Is Eden Hazard returning to Premier League?

Published

Real Madrid star Eden Hazard  could be returning to the English Premier League after struggling at the Bernabeu since his big-money move from Chelsea back in the summer transfer window of 2019.

Eden Hazard was tipped to be a perfect replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo – who had left for Juventus 12 months before, the reason why a huge investment was made to land him at the club.

The Belgium international was a star at Stamford Bridge and was almost named in the legend’s book but he opted for a move away and that was the beginning of a dwindling career.

However, Man City boss Pep Guardiola is already dreaming of bringing Eden Hazard back to the Premier League as he has recently been exposed as a big fan despite the drop in form.

Eden Hazard was favoured with just 16 La Liga appearances last term, managing a mere four goal involvements as a result. He has also battled with injuries and that reduced his appearances to four in La Liga so far this season.

Man City manager will not mind a sensational transfer for the Belgium star as he looks to improve his squad.

Pep Guardiola is still positive about Eden Hazard and thinks the 29-year-old would shine alongside compatriot Kevin De Bruyne at club level, with the pair both brilliant. He will take the chance of it comes.

The City boss defended the former Chelsea star earlier in the year, saying he’s ‘above’ the level of a top player.

“Not a top player, another level above, What we saw in England… he is world-class. The whole world knows that you need a period of adaptation.”

However, it is not certain if Real Madrid will seek to part ways with the former Chelsea player but with the prospect of having Erling Haaland, Eduardo Camavinga and Kylian Mbappe, next season, he could be forced to leave.

Pep Guardiola has also reportedly told the Manchester City hierarchy of his desire to land Eden Hazard and what ultimately happens is something only time will tell.

Tammy Abraham ‘fits the bill’ as an Arsenal signing, says Winterburn

With Arsenal interested in the signature of Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, they have been told by their hero, Nigel Winterburn that the England international fits the profile of a potential signing for the club.

Tammy Abraham looks set to leave Chelsea this summer as the Blues continue their pursuit of Erling Haaland. He is also out of favour at the club with lack of playing time. He earned 22 Premier League appearances last term, scoring six goals which is not enough for him.

Reacting to the news, Winterburn said (via Goal): “He certainly would fit the bill of recent Arsenal signings, young with a point to prove.

“People will question his consistency but what you want is for these young players to get a run in the team.

“Is he going to get a run in a team if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is playing well? Probably not unless Aubameyang can be switched to the left-hand side – although you then need to leave out either Nicolas Pepe or Bukayo Saka.

“With Abraham, there’s potential there and development for a young, young player. So, I think it’s an option [for] Arsenal, although with Alexandre Lacazette being linked with a move away, it could be just a name that has been thrown into a hat.”

He will replace French striker, Alexandre Lacazette who is also opened to leaving the Emirates Stadium for £15 million after scoring 17 goals in all competitions last season.

When asked about Lacazette, Winterburn continued: “Arsenal shouldn’t sell Lacazette unless they’ve got an upgrade in place. I wouldn’t let him go until we have secured another striker. I’ve said that all along.

“Lacazette is a different striker to anything Arsenal have at the club. When he’s in top form, he holds the ball up well, his link-up play is good.

“I suppose his strike rate is not the very, very best of what you want, but then we are not at the very, very top of the league either at the moment as well.

“So personally, at the moment, I don’t want to see him go, unless we’ve got someone coming in that’s going to excite me.

“I wouldn’t let him go and then we haven’t got anybody else to bring in. For me, that’s just way too risky.”

He’s been linked with a surprise move across London. Reports have suggested Arsenal are monitoring his situation and could make an offer if Chelsea decide to leave him leave.
