Cesc Fabregas sends clear Chelsea FC message to Eden Hazard
Cesc Fabregas reveals what he really thinks about Eden Hazard at Chelsea FC
Cesc Fabregas says that Eden Hazard can become a Chelsea FC legend if he chooses to stay at Stamford Bridge and ignore a move to Real Madrid.
The 27-year-old is widely regarded as one of the finest attacking talents in European football and he has been earning lots of praise for his strong displays for the Blues since joining from French side Lille back in 2012.
Hazard helped Chelsea FC to win the FA Cup last season and he has also twice lifted the Premier League trophy with the west London side.
However, the playmaker’s future at Chelsea FC has been a source of speculation this summer, with the midfielder having been linked with a transfer to Real Madrid recently.
Fabregas is a keen admirer of Hazard and says that he has the potential to develop into one of the best players in the world.
Writing in his column for the Daily Telegraph, Fabregas said: “Eden Hazard has the qualities to be the best, especially now Cristiano (Ronaldo) and Leo (Messi) are getting older.
“He can also be a club legend for Chelsea if he stays.
“All I say to him is it’s up to him how far he wants to get because he has all the attributes and he is still at the age where he can be the best with the likes of Neymar and maybe (Kylian) Mbappe.
“Talent-wise he is up there, I have no doubt about it. He’s strong, he’s quick, he can dribble.
“But I think Eden can score more goals than what he thinks he can. I believe in him more than he does!”
Chelsea FC are yet to confirm any new signings this summer with just six weeks of the transfer window remaining.
The Blues will be aiming to at least break back into the top four next season after they finished fifth and missed out on qualification for next season’s Champions League.
