Chelsea Transfer News: Blues Bracing Themselves For Mammoth €97m Bid

By on January 21, 2014

With the January transfer window in full flow clubs are working hard to try and strengthen their squad for the second half of the season, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest news, gossip and rumours. Today, there is some interesting news regarding Eden Hazard.

Paris Saint Germain will test Chelsea’s resolve to keep hold of attacker Eden Hazard by submitting a mammoth €97m (£80m) bid at the end of the season, according to the Metro.

Hazard has been in excellent form for Chelsea this season with his 11 goals helping the club keep pace with Arsenal and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table as well as qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

It appears his impressive displays have caught the eye of big-spending PSG with the Metro citing reports coming out of France that claim Laurent Blanc has made Hazard his No.1 summer transfer target and is prepared to use the clubs vast wealth to try and persuade Chelsea to cash-in on the 23-year-old.

The newspaper suggests that the Ligue 1 champions are so desperate to get their hands on the young Belgian international that they will try and prize him out of Stamford Bridge with a whopping €97m (£80m) offer at the end of the season.

However, it seems PSG may have their work cut out in trying to persuade Hazard to swap London for Paris after the attacker committed his future to Stamford Bridge yesterday amid rumours the Ligue 1 outfit may even be considering a move this month. He said:

‘In every transfer window for the last four years people have been saying I’m going here or there.

‘It was the same when I was at Lille. It’s often Paris, because Paris have money, Paris are a big club.

‘But my choice is Chelsea, I play all the time, and I like it here.

‘There’s no chance of seeing me leave in this transfer window. Even in the summer.

‘I’ve no desire to leave. I think this is the best place for me to progress.’ [source: Daily Mail]

It remains to be seen how Chelsea would react if PSG do end up tabling a €97m (£80m) bid but it would certainly be difficult for the west Londoners to turn down, while despite the players protestations, he too may find it hard to turn down his boyhood club if they come calling.

Hazard has become an integral part of Jose Mourinho’s first team plans this season and he’s clearly a huge fan of the former Lille man, but the decision to cash-in may be taken away from the Portuguese coach with the Blues hierarchy unlikely to be able to resist bagging a profit of nearly £50m on a player they only signed 18 months ago.

    While (PSG) could hv afford to pay €45m on inexperience Lucas Moura, Hazard is even too cheap for €150m with lots of European football experience.

    I believe Jose will turn down such a bid immediatly, or if they can pay £200M as a world record transfer they get him, or they should forget about it. Blues for life.

    Hazardous HAZARD needs to deliver at least 20 trophies before we talk of parting ways with him to any smelling club esle, but what eva the gambling goes Messi & Ronaldo will get behind Hazard soonest. long live the special one, long live hazard, long live all the blues fans.

    I think it would be better if PSG can go for Thorgan Hazard instead of wasting time on Eden Hazard cos they are all from Hazard.

    If PSG wnt Hazard, they should give us T. Silva, Lavezzi nd Cavani plus 80m pounds. Also, Man U can only get Mata if they give us Rooney. D blues 4 life……CHEERS!

    If they can afford 150 for him, then I think we will consider them so that hazard will break de record, and if they that amount we will then look for Neymar

    Wtf? €80million??? Come on! Lets be sincere i wouldn’t pay a 50 for Hazard, that’s just way overrated, he’s good can create space dribble run and be a goal threat….. Fine! Players like Neymar can do better, so i don’t see him worthing that amount.

    PSG,i’m sorry for them. They thought that Chelsea have forgotten them in a hurry,when Cavvani was on the brinks of signing for Chelsea?,before they used money to deceived him. There’s an adage that says:”One good turn deserves another” PSG,hell with your 80m pounds & look elsewhere. For Man Utd,over Mata deal would come through only Rooney move to Chelsea as a swap deal. Those at the helms of Chelsea should have a rethink of selling Mata without getting anything in return. A case in point was the transfer of RVP to Man Utd. So no Rooney,no Mata deal. The Happy One stick to this idea.
