Jamie Redknapp makes prediction about Eden Hazard at Chelsea FC this summer
Gareth Bale could move to Chelsea FC if Eden Hazard joins Real Madrid, according to Jamie Redknapp
Jamie Redknapp believes that Gareth Bale could move to Chelsea FC if Eden Hazard signs for Real Madrid this summer.
Hazard, 27, has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid and there is bound to be fresh speculation linking him with that transfer after Chelsea FC failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Bale’s future is also set to be a source of speculation this summer after he hinted that he will be considering his future after the Champions League final win over Liverpool FC on Saturday.
It remains to be seen whether Hazard will indeed be a target for Real Madrid this summer, and former Liverpool FC star Redknapp seems to think that Bale could become a target for Chelsea FC should that move happen.
Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp said: “Should Eden Hazard head to the Bernabeu this summer I could see Bale going in the opposite direction.
“Equally, he may be unsure as to who will be in charge at Stamford Bridge.
“At 28, he is in the peak of his career. Whoever signs him would be getting a model professional.
“Gareth knows he is a great player but he is not arrogant. He is still a very quiet, unassuming man.
“That bicycle kick was the perfect reminder of his talents. He will be a game-changer for whoever he joins.”
There is plenty of uncertainty at Chelsea FC at the moment, with it still unclear whether Antonio Conte will remain in charge for next season or not.
The Italian manager led the Blues to the FA Cup trophy this season but they finished in fifth place in the Premier League as they missed out on a spot in the Champions League for next season.
