Former Chelsea captain, Marcel Desailly, has said that Chelsea will have an intimidating squad even if Eden Hazard leaves the club.
Desailly is very happy with the quality of the current squad and says that losing their main man would not decrease their overall quality substantially. Eden Hazard is reportedly wanted by Real Madrid. The Belgian has said that he may think of leaving in the future. This should not be a problem according to French legend, Desailly.

He spoke about how the Blues coped when Didier Drogba left and how Hazard has been a brilliant presence in midfield. He maintained that the Belgian remains an integral part of the club but Chelsea can keep their level up if he leaves.
‘Even when [Didier] Drogba left, one of the great players, the spirit of the club continued. They continued to win… We will be sad if Hazard has to go but I am sure that Roman Abramovich is still passionate about the club.’ Desailly was quoted as saying.
Eden Hazard has netted eight times this season in spite of his injury problems. The London side have been monitoring the availability of top players in the transfer market and will keep an eye on his improvement.
