-Congratulations to Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois for helping lead Belgium to their highest World Cup finish in history. Both Chelsea players had excellent tournaments.

Courtois kept a clean sheet and Hazard scored the second of the Red Devils’ two goals in their 2-0 win over England in the third place game.

After the game, Hazard made comments that hinted at an exit from Chelsea. He’s been linked to Real Madrid for several years already, and the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus may just provide the perfect opening.

“After six wonderful years at Chelsea, it might be time to discover something different,” Hazard told reporters after the game.

  1. Hi, I have not heard anything about Leon Bailey transfer to Chelsea, what about him too!
    The boy is very good and a long term replacement for the old guys, he dribbles, score goals, complete passes and has a quality of take on(s) . we have been watching his yutube videos everyday, that guy is very good. we are die hard fans of Chelsea and pay money everyday to watch all Chelsea matches throughout the entire season, we struggled last season we weren’t having good bench, if u wanna win something is all about good bench. try him and u wouldn’t waste your money, don’t let any team surpasses u to get him, he is urs, I learnt he has a soft heart for Chelsea and he was with the scouting head weeks ago. If u push I mean this will be de easiest transfer of all time, it’s just about 45 to 50 million pounds Sterling and u ll have a versatile player. He can play wide, false 9 and number 10 too!!!
    please forward this to Chelsea hierarchy which includes the board, Marina Granovskaia, scouting head and the manager Sarri.
    I have been looking for platforms to send this but couldn’t find any until I got here.
    Please pressure them to do that transfer and all fans accross the entire world ll be happy and even increase the fan bases too
    Thanks so much!!!
    I hope to get a good response from you!!!
