“Hard to stop him joining Real Madrid,” reveals player’s teammate

Real Madrid will be an attractive destination for many a player and a former employee reveals it would be tough to stop his teammate from joining Los Blancos.

Eden Hazard moving to Real Madrid is becoming more and more likely with every passing day. The speculation has dominated the back pages since Zidane’s return to the helm at the Bernabeu. The player has also subtly hinted that he might be interested to play in the Real whites. Now, one of his teammates and former Real Madrid man, Gonzalo Higuain, has suggested that it will be “difficult to change his mind” if he has set his eyes on a move to Spain.

Higuain hopes Hazard stays

“What can I tell you? Those are things that involve the club executives and the desire of the player. When a player has a desire, it is difficult to change his mind,” Higuain told ESPN FC. “It is obvious that, when he is at this level, he gives you points, he gives you goals and the truth is that it is a great asset to have him with us.”

Gonzalo Higuain is hopeful but concedes that it would be tough to stop Hazard from leaving.

“Here what matters is Eden’s decision and the decision of the board. I cannot do anything. He has not asked me [about life in Madrid] but if it’s what makes him happy, I wish him the best. I hope he can stay.”

€100m too cheap,” says Sarri

Maurizio Sarri has suggested that Real Madrid will have to part with a sum in excess of €100m to land the Belgian. Reports had emerged suggesting that Chelsea would be willing to part with their talisman for a three-digit figure. “It’s [€100m] too cheap,” Sarri said while speaking to Sky Sports. “We have seen every price in the last few transfer windows. I think it’s very hard to change Hazard with another player.I’m sure the club doesn’t want to sell him.”

“But, of course, we all have to respect his decision. He’s in the last year of his contract [next season]. If he wants to have another experience, we’ll respect that.”

Author’s Take

The fact that Maurizio Sarri has decided to name a price for Hazard suggests that the move might well be on the cards. Eden Hazard would be an impressive addition to the Royal Whites but slightly on the wrong end of the age spectrum. But considering the youngsters Real have on their books in the attacking department, Hazard will be a immediate fix. However, that doesn’t stop Chelsea from playing an hard game and squeezing every penny out of Perez’s cheque-book.
