Chelsea FC latest news and transfer rumours
Chelsea transfer speculation in today’s online media realm stems from a French president and his assumptions cast upon a former employee to leave for a bigger club, yes you guessed it, its Lille’s Michel Seydoux and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, but where may he be of to?
If you believe what you read in Belgium, news source HLN reports that Lille president Michel Seydoux is just tredding water at Stamford Bridge before he seals his dream move to Barcelona to replace the mighty Lionel Messi, when, or more precisely put, if he shows signs of decline.
Such a statement from Seydoux will be surely brushed off by current Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo, who with the financial backing of a healthy Russian war chest will be certain to keep the £32m Belgian acquisition only capturing his signature just a few months back.
Despite winning over Chelsea fans with an outstanding Premier League debut, Lille president Seydoux confirmed that he will at some stage outgrow the West London club and become the next best thing at Camp Nou.
“I made a bet with people,” Seydoux told L’Equipe.
“The bet was that Hazard would play for Barcelona. He is a phenomenon and one day he will replace Lionel Messi in the Barca team.
“I am convinced of that.”
Regardless of the transfer gossip, speculation and rumour, Eden Hazard will be focused on putting in a top performance tonight as Chelsea host Juventus tonight in their first group match of the UEfa Champions League.
