Chelsea FC star Cesc Fabregas is begging the team’s “best player,” Eden Hazard, to rebuff the advances of Real Madrid and stay Chelsea. There have been conflicting reports about how far a potential Hazard to Real move has progressed at this point, but Fabregas said that he talks to the Belgian with regularity, and he’s hoping the 27-year-old stays put.

“I speak to him often. He is the best player at the club and we need Chelsea to keep the best players,” Fabregas said at a news conference in Australia today ahead of the club’s first preseason game versus Perth Glory on Monday.

“He knows the fans love him and he is a player we love to play with. For sure, we want him to stay.”

It’s been reported that Chelsea as a whole also want Hazard to stay, and newly minted manager Maurizio Sarri has publicly expressed his wishes to work with the player who won the 2014-15 PFA Player of the Year award.

However, the money may just be too much to turn down.  The Evening Standard reports that Madrid made an opening bid of £112 million, while Bleacher Report and Metro claim that an agreement in principle has already been reached, and that’s for the sum of £170 million.

Eden Hazard to Real Madrid is a transfer narrative that feels as old as time, but it’s taken on a much higher level this summer.

Speculation hit a fever pitch after Hazard told reporters at the World Cup “it might be time to discover something different” after playing six seasons at Chelsea. He also referenced the Santiago Bernabeu by adding: “You know my preferred destination.”
