As rumours of the next move of F.C. Chelsea and Belgium’s National Soccer Team’s Star Eden Hazard continues to make the news everywhere especially since the departure of Cristian Ronaldo from Real Madrid to Juventus F.C., our reporter was in Catalonia to ask the Barcelona technical secretary Eric Abidal about the possibility of the Belgian joining F.C. Barcelona as is being touted in some quarters.
In response, the Barca Technical Secretary simply decided to refuse ruling out a summer move for Eden Hazard. As it is currently in the rumour mills, both the F.C. Barcelona and Real Madrid are gunning for the signature of the soccer wizard who is still in Russia preparing for tomorrow’s game between his country and the English Natonal Soccer Team for the third place position in the on-going 2018 FIFA World Cup Competition holding in Russia.
Meanwhile, his present employers have also not given up hope of keeping their star as they are reportedly confident that their new Manager’s (they have just replaced former Manager Antonio Conte with former Napoli Gaffer, Maurizio Sarri) commitment to attacking football could be enough to persuade Hazard to commit the peak years of his career to the club he joined six years ago.
F.C. Barcelona on the other hand decided to make Eden Hazard as their main target after failing to pry away Antoine Griezmann from Athletico Madrid.
When asked further about the chances of Barca signing Hazard, Abidal responded; ‘You will have to ask him. On his opinion about the same issue, Eden Hazard had this to say;
“Right now I’m good at Chelsea and besides, nobody has approached me with an offer”.
I guess we all have to wait until the player himself indicates what his decision on this issue is and that is not likely to happen until sometime after the match involving Belgium and England on Saturday 14th July, 2018.
