Chelsea selling Eden Hazard to Real Madrid for £100 million would be nothing short of a brilliant piece of business for the football club, according to Mario Melchiot.
Hazard has been heavily linked with a Santiago Bernabeu switch throughout the 2018-19 campaign and he has previously admitted he “dreams” of one day playing for the club.
Madrid coach, Zidane has also penned down Hazard as his summer target, calling him a “fantastic player” recently.
Mario said, “Keeping him for another year and letting him go for free? That would be bad business,”
“As a fan, all along I want to keep Hazard until the last minute. But as a business, it would not be a smart move to hold onto him.
“You don’t want to let anybody walk out for free.
“If you can get a lot of money for him… he’s on his last year and still has a value of around £100m. If they can get that for him, it would be great.”
“Hazard’s future at the club is very simple,”
“This kid wants to play the best and wants to play with the best.
“It’s great being the best player in a team, but you want to make sure you’re playing amongst players who can help you succeed and bring you to the next level.
“I’m not saying the current Chelsea players are not good… but are they good enough to keep him excited?
“That’s why Real Madrid is so interesting for him and that’s why he might have already made his mind up.”
