Glenn Hoddle urges Chelsea to sign Real Madrid star if Eden Hazard leaves
The former Chelsea boss urges the Premier League leaders to sign Isco plus cash if Eden Hazard moves to Real Madrid
Glenn Hoddle believes Chelsea should look to bring Isco to Stamford Bridge if Eden Hazard moves to Real Madrid this summer.
The Blues forward has been linked with a big-money switch to los Blancos in the summer transfer window after an impressive season in the Premier League.
Belgium international Hazard has scored 15 goals and has made five assists in 32 appearances in the Premier League in the 2016-17 season.
Chelsea would presumably be reluctant to let their number 10 to leave Stamford Bridge given his importance to Antonio Conte’s side.
Hazard has been previously touted with a move to Real Madrid but a transfer failed to materialise under Jose Mourinho.
Speaking to BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show, former Chelsea boss Hoddle urged Conte to ensure the Premier League leaders get cash plus some players if Hazard moves to The Bernabeu.
“If his head’s turned and he wants to go to Real Madrid, there are some good players there that you could include in the deal.
“There’s some real talent there that you could try to sign, like Isco. You can almost swing it round and you be the one demanding [the deal]. If they’re that desperate for him, they’ll do it.”
Hazard scored 14 times in 38 games in the Premier League in their title-winning campaign in 2014-15.
The Chelsea star was one of the contenders to win the PFA award this term but missed out to team-mate N’Golo Kante.
