Almost every year this period of August has to be a nightmare for all the Premier League clubs and they have created this for themselves.
With their transfer window shut it means that no Premier League club would be able to sign new players but the other clubs in Europe would be able to sign the players from Premier League till the end of their transfer window which is 31st of August.
So there are instances where the club hasn’t really lined up a replacement for the player but the noise of the player, agent and the other club could be building the pressure for the sale and one such instance has to be the rumours about the Chelsea man Eden Hazard moving to Real Madrid.
After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo everyone was expecting Real Madrid to make a big signing and likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski were linked to them all through the summer and so was Chelsea star Eden Hazard. The links with Eden Hazard grew stronger when the Chelsea man showed his willingness to join Los Blancos.
Although during the course of the World Cup, Eden Hazard dropped hints of leaving Stamford Bridge but now after the victory against Arsenal he came out saying –
I’m happy here. I don’t want to talk about it yet. A lot has been said, but at the moment I’m happy. I have two years left on my contract and we’ll see what happens. Leaving this year? I won’t go.
