Is Hazard Coming?

Everywhere you look on the internet, it would suggest that Eden Hazard is coming to Chelsea.

The internet is alive with the inference the 21 year old wizz-kid playmaker has chosen t pursue a career in London rather than in Manchester.

Personally, I`ll wait until there is some kind of official confirmation from within the walls of Stamford Bridge rather than all this speculation, but it is getting a little exciting is it not?

http://flosrfc.football.fr/post/2012/05/28/hazard-signe-a-chelsea Fort de sa victoire en Ligue des Champions face au Bayern Munich, le club londonien a réussi à arracher la signature d’Eden Hazard. Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United et Tottenham s'interressait au Belge. Montant de l’opération : 40 Millions d'euros et plus de 500 000 € de salaire mensuel et un contrat de cinq ans.

Does this have any translation Kaku?

I only speak English so I google translated it: With his victory in the Champions League against Bayern Munich, the London club managed to snatch the signature of Eden Hazard. Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham interressait the Belgian. Transaction amount: 40 million euros and more than 500 000 € monthly salary and a five-year contract.
CalculatedKalou
for *****s sake get this over with.
Mia Maynard
Getting boring now, apparently his brother Thorgan Hazard is a much better prospect. We should sign all three of the Hazard brothers, Eden, Thorgan and Kylian.

zola187
Think guys. His shirt no is the key 10. He strikes me as an arogant (unt and i doubt he will swap numbers. Rooney at united wont swap his no. Mata for us wont swap his no. Dzeko at city is 10 right? Expect annoucement of him leaving with hazard joining citeh.
Clingy
500 000 what? I saw this on twitter but immidiately discarded it as joke...
LeyemovicH
btw, after all this, with people reporting he joined us, how would you feel if he joined united. doubt chelsea people would have kept this quiet.
Mia Maynard
apparently he's going to reveal who he's signed for anytime now. ... ive been listening to a drum roll all afternoon

check this out Eden chose his new garden The drama of the announcement of the next Belgian club Lille OSC ends with the official announcement of his departure for the English club Chelsea. For 40 million euros and 550,000 euros monthly salary for the player, everything has been reached between the parties that the next jersey the Belgian genius of Lille is one of the last winner of the Champions League. He will join Florent Malouda in the jersey of the Blues. He left Lille, where he moved in 2007 after 194 matches and 50 goals scored.

@LeyemovicH, 500,000 a month and that is Euros.
RayBell
i dont mind him getting big contract if he is that good. i know there will be now comments like he is not wotmrht that much salary. but same people were saying same regarding aguero. and they are feeling sorry that we did not got him. people were saying aguero is not worth more than 100k or 120k a week. and he is u.proven in premiership. but look, he created history for city. top talents need to be paid top dollar. we already have many good players on lower salaries. and we should not expect 11 out of 11 to be quality bargains. arsenal try to do same thing every time and look now they no longer try to mount title challenge. just finishing in top4 is there target every time (as it seems). and i think emenalo has eye for talent. and i think our every move goes through him (may b except torre). so i believe in him.
ChampionBlue
exactly clingy. I don't fill ok with this arrogant twerp. he is going to one of the three biggest clubs in britain ( or europe) and he is already dictating with number he wants to wear. little wonder barca and real lost interest in him. can't see him benching ozil or messi not to talk of commandeering their numbers. i would love rather that we concentrate all our efforts on Lucas moura, we should upp the ante on his price to 35m, although real madrid presidents wants him i can;t see him bidding the same amount as we can. and if he does, we let him go to madrid and we bid for kaka. I would love the dread a kaka behind torres with hulk and mata/marin on the wings will bring to the PL defences.
Dwonder
Hazard why doin all this let the cat out of the bag.better be chelsea or i will hate u.
foladebisi
Hazard come on.come to the champions.
foladebisi
by the way he will be great coup for chelsea. like last year we had one over arsenal in chase for mata. and now we have over WHOLE manchester by signing him. i think his desire to play in no 10 position may just push mata's performance to another level.
ChampionBlue
Hazard come on.come to the champions.
foladebisi
Hazard spotted outside Old Trafford in a Chelsea shirt chatting with Mancini
Diego_rodriguezz
lol, he is signing for united, his decision is way into fergie time
Mia Maynard
more of a reputation boost for the club that a 'world class' talent chooses to come to us. the whole circus thing is hilarious considering we arent even in pre season
ktm_blues
lol diego...really hope this talented boy comes to us....will be a gr8 coup.....fingers crossed
AdwaitlovesChelsea
@Diego_rodriguezz LOL! Anyway, if he wore a chelsea shirt then thats the answer!
josevis
by the way when is the kid make the damn long awaited announcement? plz do not be a robinho!!!!And can anyone gimme more dtails about robinho...just know that he had signed for us and it was declared on official website too
AdwaitlovesChelsea
Sorry guys no announcement today. Apparently Hazard has been banned by Twitter for creating a fuss.
Diego_rodriguezz
Yes, because they ban people for making a fuss, by tweeting loads, hmm that's bad for them isn't it. Anyway, it is exciting, although annoying to wait.
AMLang
hazard is good but is acting like a**** so ***** him, it should be an honor to play for any of these teams but he is acting like he is the king dick. he will get my support if he becomes a chelsea player no question but if he signs else where then all i can say is CFC sign someone like ballack and break his legs
guitarguy656
Bad news.. Sky Bet freezes betting on Hazard to United. www.skybet.com/w/328cnt4ku9r56ea2c/level4.xhtml?type=10003041
Diego_rodriguezz
another ronaldo... he will be a great player.... but he will leave any team he joins now in 3-4 years...infact these days i am not expecting any player to be loyal to his team...
colourmeblue
ive always thought he will go to united. 'Due to the dyslexia of harry redknapp,spurs today announced the signing of eddie izzard!
bluenath86
BREAKING NEWS : Hazard fails his medical tests due to a swollen ego.
FrLamp
Confirmed by Lille official site the fecker joins Manure. Says he chose United for trophies. losc.fr/actualite-foot-lille/reportages/trophees-unfp-le-double-pour-eden-hazard
Diego_rodriguezz
why did he do this, just announce it already, hate this talking machine so much, trying to get people attention
chelsea44
Patrice Evra tweeted that Hazard was going to CHelsea earlier today but then removed the tweet minutes later! Now goal.com claims he will go to Chelsea http://www.goal.com/en/news/9/england/2012/05/28/3132296/chelsea-win-the-battle-to-sign-hazard-from-lille But i won't believe anything before the club makes the annoucement!
Rune3k
Chelsea probably want to appoint a manager before signing him if the rumours are true!
Rune3k
Rune he has joined Utd. Its official
Diego_rodriguezz
bulll crrap..no way is he gettin 500000 ..lmao.. thats utter crrap
slash_blue
@diego_rodriguez - What the hell are you talking about? There's absolutely nothing concerning United on this link!
FrLamp
Caught you there :D
Diego_rodriguezz
diego link? haven't saw it
chelsea44
there's nothing official Diego, Jesus Christ...
FrLamp
I like Hulk better because he can play as a winger and a striker.
I am Number 7
FrLamp you didnt have to mention it. #letothersfallforittoo
Diego_rodriguezz
Why do people keep forgetting that its 500k euros a Month
Diego_rodriguezz
i actually prefer Kagawa rather than Hazard tbh
chelsea44
Hope he joins the scum so I can hate him some more. PrimaDonna Mug.
BluenGray
same here nothing in the link stating he is going to united.... however would be interesting to see if the evra's tweet is correct or not... as after all its deleted so no one can confirm it unless there is a screen shot. but they can be doctored easy so... yeah back to square 1
guitarguy656
Nobody is laughing with you diego
AMLang
It wasnt meant to make laugh.
Diego_rodriguezz
We should go for Lucas Morau.. He looks even better than Hazard!
Rune3k
BREAKING NEWS: Hazard chooses blue as the colour of his bedding thereby making it obvious that he will sign for Chelsea... Apparently according to someone
Gondo
I mean Moura* :P
Rune3k
ok a month is believable but even then he becomes the top earner at the club..not the right precedent..again the urge to succeed asap takes centrestage..long term planning n the proper way to run the club is nowhere in sight !!
slash_blue
@rune3k moura is madrid bound unfortunately
Gondo
Gondo ya but I also heard he slept with Red panties on.
Diego_rodriguezz
diego chutiye
slash_blue
one good reason to buy hazard is he ll ensure that he *****es opp fans to the hilt with his cocky annoying tweets XD
slash_blue
@slash no foul language here.. Know all Hindi slangs.. Been to India
Diego_rodriguezz
lmao...no offence ..just some fun ..din even mean it XD
slash_blue
No offense taken.
Diego_rodriguezz
btw m sure uve never been near india.. n chutiye is no slang..commonest word arnd here .. modern day translation ->nutcase .. well ur prank deserved that much !!
slash_blue
People say great players deserve top level stipends and use Arguero as an example..i actually agree but the thing is Hazard is no arguero..i was one of those who had been begging for us to get arguero when most were focused on neymar...Hazard is different..he is not that level of quality yet his ego is greater than Maradona's at his peak. I really feel for you guys who are falling all over yourselves on this..i am not..this drama is ridiculous...whoever "wins" this guys signature may be getting a really albatross tied around their necks. If he does as well as we think he may with his ego i cannot but see him moving to Real or Barca in 2-3 yrs tops..if he flops you have on your roster a very expensive flop who despite his poor form will insist on still being a starter otherwise may become a dressing room cancer. I wish i could be more optimistic but guys i wont be weeping if Hazard doesnt come to Chelsea..if he does come to Chelsea you guys who pray begin praying..i certainly will. I would be far more excited about getting hulk for no more than 35m from the Porto hustler president and stealing Kagawa form ManUs nose..hopefully if ManU get Hazard they would no longer be interested in Kagawa and we can get him instead.
GabeU
but @Diego i also heard he called up wayne bridge to get tips on how to keep John Terry away from his WAG... You know just in case!!
Gondo
m off guys. hope is see " hazard signs for chelsea FC " tomorrow..its more than just the player ..shows chelsea > utd n city !!! GN
slash_blue
But we can't give you No. 10.... In fact none of the three clubs could give you the No.10. But you can have the role though..
vicken
YAWN *****IN YAWN Jeezus most of my excitement at this potential transfer has died. Get Hulk first. Need Hulk more than hazard
Mia Maynard
Might be commonest but sure is a slang. Been years... but I remember most spoken was "salle" anyways the prank was to make this more exciting.
Diego_rodriguezz
@Gondo I think the reason he is delaying confirmation is that his WAG hasnt yet agreed terms with JT
Diego_rodriguezz
Eden hazard would look cute in Red, charming in Light Blue. But he will look a man in BLUE
Diego_rodriguezz
He must be going to United. He's deciding in Fergie time...
ucmyway
Do you really want Hazard cos from a neturals point of view i would just let him go City or United because he is just an attention seeking little toad. I also reckon he will be in the papers all the time and is just setting himself up for an almighty fall? I might be wrong but just saying ok :) P.S Why is it such a big secret? All he has to say is Manure,Citeh or Chelski not that difficult SURELY? Mind you he is a footballer so you never know LOL :) is Edin Heading for a Hazard LOL!!!!!!!!! Sorry couldn't help myself ;)

All this speculation is getting on nerves now. I have been sitting in from of my laptop for hours for Hazard to announce his hazardous destination whether its us or not.
EliteBlue
All i can say is it better be good or he will be Edin for a fall!!!!!!! LOL Cos the press will slate him like you wouldn't believe He is an attention seeking little Toad !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
redhotspur1234
Wouldn't you rather Christian Eriksen??

belgian national coach marc wilmots says expect nothing for the next 10 days. trolled.

I bet you £5 nothing will be annouced tonight?

CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE!!!!! HAZARD, Welcome to Chelsea FC. The Best Club on Planet Earth.
kazikanyig
But Man utd is also a Champions League winner.
I am Number 7
it is confirmed he said it himself on his offial twitter...he is a blue now fact
heart_of_blue
manure are champions league winners in past and he hasn't said the current winners so maybe he's having us on!
bluenath86
Well his chosen Chelsea Congrats but preceed with caution it could be a hazardous journey ahead ????
redhotspur1234
Hazard announces on Twitter, Chelsea.
BluenGray
Which yr champions of europe?I really hope that its not all a sick joke?
sponnukumar
Finally, we have our own Cristiano Ronaldo in the bag
Shyna
you beat me to it number 7! great minds think alike! ha
bluenath86
Couldn't he just say that he signed for Chelsea? Champions League winner? It can be either us or Man United.
I am Number 7
actually yeah he only said im signing for the champions league winner...he didnt say this years champions league winner..that would be a very cruel joke if he meant manure...but at least he defo wont be going to city
heart_of_blue
Despite reports I hope we play him on the wing so Mata can continue in the centre.
AMLang
he officially confirm his coming to chelsea just now on his twitter so guys expect Hazard next season...lets see what his going to do
bluebroda
@bluenath86 Haha!! Thanks.
I am Number 7
But if you look at his french tweet, he says champions of europe, so that means the current champions us, not man utd. Come on Chelsea!
AMLang
@AMLang I saw how he plays on youtube. I think he is a better winger than Mata. Will he get Drogba's No. 11 shirt?
I am Number 7
hahaha this was posted by some utd fans but it is so funny : eden hazard has decided to join chelsea after his wife agrees terms with john terry hahahaha lol
kam.kh
@I am Number 7 I reckon he will get no. 11 and yeah, I hope he does play on the wing because that is the sort of guy we need on the wing, I hope he also plays on the left with ramires on the right.
AMLang
@AMLang If he said champions of europe, then it is definitely us.
I am Number 7
HAZARD SIGNS FOR CHELSEA!
ucmyway
so come on guys are we happy with this signing or would you have prefared hulk?
heart_of_blue
Mouhahahahahahahaha he is coming to us. Now Hulk
EliteBlue
Will we still get Hulk? I personally prefer Hulk since he can play as either a winger or a striker. More versatile.
I am Number 7
Not official yet! Waiting for a conformation by Lille or cfc! Then i will believe it!
austriablue
na we wont get hulk now..sure we have de bruyne aswell we wont get another winger surley
heart_of_blue
If in fact Hazard is joining Chelsea i know for most of you it is answer to prayers..the guy is talented no doubt and would be a great addition..for me though his joining Chelsea is reason to begin praying hard that this does not go south..he has made himself out to be the next Pele and the most vicious media machine in the world will be out with Rapiers drawn seeing he chose Chelsea over their beloved Red devils to extract their pound of flesh from the guy. If in fact it is true welcome Eden...now come back to earth and watch your back!!!
GabeU
HAZARD IS WAY MORE VERSATILE THAN HULK! CAN PLAY ANYWHERE IN MIDFIELD!!! FORGET HULK NOW GUYS!
ucmyway
The only way we would get Hulk is if we sell Sturridge
AMLang
It's a KDB, MATA, HAZARD MIDFIELD!
ucmyway
@GabeU It's definitely good that it's happened at the beginning of the summer though, not like a transfer deadline day where you might be thrust in to it straight away, the media frenzy should calm down by then.
AMLang
im 99% percent sure we will get hulk aswell but i cant find where hazard has confirmed its us.
bluenath86
Hulk and Hazard on the wings with Torres in the middle? That sounds promising. But how do we cope with that financial fair play rule if we really are getting both of them?
I am Number 7
It's confirmed on Sky Sports News.
CobhamBlue
DON'T GET HULK NOW!!! WE ARE SORTED FOR NEXT SEASON (IF WE KEEP IVANOVIC)!
ucmyway
fantastic news for chelsea and we fans are loving it!to celebrate i will watch the champions league final again!
MrDax
@GabeU - Can you delay these sort of topics lol? I know there will be plenty to say about this deal but let's enjoy the signing for now. It's indeed a quality player that is joining us there!
FrLamp
I actually now hope we don't sign hope because I really like Ramires and want him to play on the wing in 4-2-3-1, he can't play in that 2 and if we want to accomodate Ramires, Hazard, Torres, Hulk and Mata, you'd have to play 4-3-3 which wouldn't suit our current best player Mata.
AMLang
we aint getting aswell hulk not a chance....could we? na i doubt it...so does this mean RDM is the manager if players are getting signed?
heart_of_blue
hulk* not hope
AMLang
May I dream a ittle bit please? Just a little PlayStation like formation : 4-2-3-1 Cech Ivanovic Cahill Terry Cole Lampard Mikel Hulk Mata Hazard Torres. Oh God...
FrLamp
Guess we're pretty much set on the winger apartment from now and many years forward. Really excited about this one, I must say. A player who could be right up there with Messi and Ronaldo in a couple of years. Hopefully we'll finalize our targeted deals pretty soon so we won't have another August 31st á la Meireles.
Puttinuttan
@i am number 7, the transfer fee paid is spread over the length of there contract. so if we pay £35 million for hazard it will get broke down over the 5 years he signs for.so in the ffp it will show next season like £8 million spent plus wages then again over the years of his contract.
dtr1977
@FrLamp, YEAH!! FIFA 13, HERE I COME!
ucmyway
Lol redhotspur, can't say I've been too impressed with Hazard's behaviour but on the other hand, he's just trolling. Feck, I'd troll too, every press hack and fan disecting your every word. The ********'s got a sense of drama! I'll only believe his tweet when he's officially at Cobham, he probably means Atletico Madrid or something in a final twist! Silly boy.
BlueBanes
@frlamp!! no david luiz?
dtr1977
@Puttinuttan completely agree. I'd like to calm down the Hulk talk though :P, not sure if he'd fit at chelsea now.
AMLang
marin(de bruyne) torres (lukaku) hazard (sturridge) front 3. supported by mata. and the midfield 2 of ramires (lampard) and mikel (meireles,essien). YES PLEASE
Rishab
I am Number 7, According to Gourlay we've made so much money through winning the Champions League, money is no object. I think we've earned £50m from tv/prize money alone, never mind gate receipts, sponsorship, merchandise etc. He reckons it could be worth £100m, which I suppose when consider we'll get £30m next season, that we wouldn't have got had we not won, he's probably right.
CobhamBlue
I hope we also get Hulk :D
Drog of War
@dtr1977 - Oh God I absolutely forgot this one. Rambo and Marin as well. See? Squad depth already looks very good for next season... Providing we get Hulk of course.
FrLamp
Give him the number 14 shirt to remind a certain modric what it would have been as we firmly shut the door on the loser's face.

@frlamp hahaha cant miss out rambo!!!!!! how dare you!
dtr1977
Rishab, Torres is not good enough to be Chelsea CF. He'll replace Kalou as our (very expensive & not as good as Kalou) impact sub. We definitely need to replace Drogba.
CobhamBlue
ramires deserves a place in the lineup more than any.
AMLang
FrLamp, crazy thing about your awesome Fifa lineup is there's no space for effing RAMIRES. Some fantasty football this (I'm not knocking it!).
BlueBanes
cobham blue - i honestly think with this lineup torres will flourish. if he flops i will agree to sell him in jan itself. Don't want us to waste money on another expensive forward. if we are, then rather be hulk who can play both right and centre.
Rishab
Yeah, if Torres doesn't produce next season he has no more excuses, he should now get all the service he needs.
AMLang
Let me join all the others in saying "Welkom to Chelsea Eden Hazard" May your time with us be blessed and a wonderful experience for us and you. I also want to say once again a big thank yo
GabeU
Wow!!!.....Hazard,Piazon,Mata,DeBruyne,Ramirez,Marin and Posiibly Hulk, we will be a major force in Europe by next season
SameX
I also want to say thank you once again to our old guard, legends and vets who by pulling of the miracles at Stamford bridge (against Napoli), at the Nou Camp and in Munich essentially made this possible..that golden generation gave their all to ensure that the Glory of Chelsea would not end in their time...thank you guys as we now begin to build a new golden generation..we wont forget you ensured its possibility.
GabeU
I have a feeling De Bruyne MIGHT get loaned out next season. Hope he doesn't, deserves a shot, although it now would look like he'd be backup.
AMLang
Welcome Hazard
Malhotra
congrats on the news he is QUALITYYYYYYYYYYY...... he has it all this will be the biggest signing the transfer window without a shadow of a doubt......
muffdaddy1983
Hello champions :)
The Persian
I hate to sound greedy but if we can pull it of for no more than 35m i would be elated if we could get Hulk as well...once that it done we would need only one utility player who can play CDM in case romeu flies the coop, a credible no 2 goalkeeper and i think we are set. I dont think we need to dip in the market for an RB..between Hutchison, Kane and even Kalas i think we have more than enough cover for Brana.
GabeU
Guys enjoy the moment and stop saying he will leave for barca and madri in 3 or 4 years...He could have gone there even now...Lets say we will gwt a hefty fee even if he does leave after 4 years..If we show enough ambition and win trophies he will stay...
sekar_blue4ever
In regards to Hazard picking to sign for Chelsea, this shows exactly why CL competition is so important to a club. With all the riches on offer at Shiety, Great Manager and stability at Manure, his choice to sign for CFC was attracted only for the sole reason of us being the European Champions ))) (can never get tired of hearing it!!!) With Debryne, and Marin coming in, and possibly even Hulk, along with Hazard (which will hopeful spell an end to our giggs wanna be Malouda), with Torres to finally find his golden scoring boots, our attack will be easily as lethal as anyone's on the planet. With so many trophies to play for next season, including the UEFA Super Cup (which i badly want CFC to win it) will probably start shaping our clubs dynasty in world football, and being present to witness this glory will be magnificent to say the least, with hopefully the right manager this time to lead us toward all this glory. We as a club has something special right now going for us, unlike any other club at the moment including Barca/Madrid/ and Shiety with the right choices by our Board and Roman, we are able to become the next Barca/Madrid/Milan in terms of being the power house and elite club of world football, if we people who are making the decisions at the club can make them with less errors this time we will all witness true greatness coming from Chelsea FC, and I'm for true excited (to say the least) for whats waiting for us ahead in the near future, and no sore losers spurs and that you never win anything fans can ever take that away from us.
Tiraspol
Looking forward to seeing him up against his new team mates on saturday!
AMLang
Finally. It's my birthday and what a birthday present for me, now I am really happy. Also, the buzz is Hulk will be confirmed soon. Hazard and Hulk with Mata, now if Torres can't score then I think he has lost it!!
the_blue_world
GabeU, who is that Thank you for? Hope its for Roman. The best owner any club could dream of! Love you Rom.
Fernando.9.Torres
imagine where we would be without didier and his goals. we wouldnt have the money or reputation to sign hazard or hulk. surely of the millions didier got for us we can spare a few thousand for a statue.
blueirishman
@Fernando.9.Torres I am sure no owner in world football loves their club more than Roman does..His decisions may be strange sometimes but he surely intends only good for cfc
sekar_blue4ever
YES! WHAT A PROPOSITION! Didier Drogba must have a statue outside stamford bridge!
AMLang
What is your team gonna be next season cos you signed Mario Marin but i have just analysed your team and just cannot see where he Marin Plays My rough guess is Cech,Cole,Terry,Cahill,Ivanovic, Ramires,Lampard,Mikel,Mata,Hazard,Torres?? So were is Mario Marin going to play for you?
redhotspur1234
VDW,Hulk and Hazard in the Bag, Modric, what are you waiting for.
SameX
where*
redhotspur1234
no point in putting a statue of Drogba outside the bridge if it looks like we are moving to a new stadium in the next year or two...better off saving it for the new ground
heart_of_blue
He adds squad depth red hot....
CalculatedKalou
VDV and Hulk in the bag? Feck, the Hazard signing hasn't even been confirmed by the club. Greed and impatience.
RadioactiveD
Maybe Hulk was the 20 to 30 goal scoring Forward Gourlay was talking about cos he will not actually challenge Torres upfront as he will play on the RW but he will reduce the burden on Torres as Hulk is a proven goal scorer
SameX
Modric's going to Madrid probably as Levy won't sell to You he would probably rather see Mod in a Manure shirt or Citeh shirt tbh :(
redhotspur1234
I'm all for a Didier's statue just outside the bridge, but aren't we planning to move in the not-so-distant future? Feckin excited about the prospect of having Hazard running alongside Mata, Torres and Ramires ... Btw, anyone else think he plays a lot like Joe cole, only more persistent with the ball?
broody
Edem will be a Hazard for Manchester ;)
Malhotra
torres has no more excuses!!! mata, hazard and marin! and most probably hulk. Signing Hazard will make hulk want to join even more. Poor modric stuck at that small club rotting away! lollllll

@Radio....keep being Patient, okay?

chelsea will not be moving to a new stadium in one or two years!! lol. we will not even get the power station. london mayor does not want us to build it there also,and he has a major say what happens there. so get used to the bridge as we will be there for a very long time.
dtr1977
redhotspur...with all due respect mate we don't need Modric next season (I think). You guys might as well offload him for a hefty fee and sign some quality (of which there is plenty lying around) in his place. I want this signing confirmed before I believe anything! Hazard is quite the troll!
BlueBanes
Mr Dax oh shut up i am only trying to get a feel for your team so i can plot your demise although i can't find alot i must admit But what is going to happen to players such as Essien, Sturridge, kalou, and Oriol Romeu Raul Meireles José Bosingwa surely they will not be happy sitting on the bench ????
redhotspur1234
He's already getting hacked down by utd,city n arsenal fans on goal.com. Angry,bitter fans out there people. British media are gonna be planning a coup now,'pile so much pressure on him n we'll make him flop'. Pray eden plays his heart out against the top clubs. Funny stuffs on goal.com,some angry delusional fan posted dat chelsea is gonna play the formations: 9-0-1 and 10-0-0. Can't stop laffing.
Nightingalle
If we do go for another CM i will say we go for Kagawa instead of going for the likes of modric....Kagawa cheaper younger and better than modric...I think Kagawa will end up at manu...
sekar_blue4ever
and Bluebanes fair enough you're probably right ;) doesn't score enough goals and doesn't assit enough imho!!
redhotspur1234
redhot...Essien, god bless him is'nt the same player since his injuries,Kalou is out of contract and we wont renew it,Bossingwa will go, Romeu will stay as he's the future,Sturridge may go and Meireles will stay
springy
i have to laugh at al the Arsenal supporters on twitter going mad calling Hazard a money grabber an how he has no class or loyalty.....why would he or any top player consider joining the sinking Arsenal ship...plus if he was money motivated he would have joined citeh...bitter bitter fools
heart_of_blue
so what is your team and bench gonna be next season then springy??
redhotspur1234
I dont think we need modric anymore...atleast not for 40m that spurs want for him....Buy only if we can get him for 20 m or look somewhere else...He wiil regret not pushing thru a move for chelsea last summer just like gerrard is regretting after rejecting us in 2005/06 season....

Aye redhot, amazing talent but for the money you can get for him, why keep a sulker on your books. Now Chelsea confirm this freaking signing because I'm getting paranoid it's more mind games from this kid!

Anyone who still thinks Hazard is a mercenary shouldn't look any further than the fact that he snubbed city for us.

Do you guys remember Gael Kakuta and Josh McEachran ?? Don't think they will make the first team anytime soon :P
Rune3k
I would be totally *****ed off if I were a MU or MC fan.But that's a bonus to the transfer,ain't it?Although I have to admit that having watched his video against Lyon and he did't seem that much of a star.But once he is a Chelsea player I reckon we have to stand by him and protect him from the flow of crap by the media,who will be absolutely furious that he didn't join their favourites,the tablecloth guys.I am wondering ,however,who between him and Mata willbe wearing the №10 jersey during the next season.Anyway,party hard,because we signed the superstar that everybody wanted to.

LeyemovicH
S.doski the two manchesters man, not just one manchester
LeyemovicH
I think we need a player like Modric, Lamps cannot play all the games next season...Modric wanted to come, he liked Chelsea and London,,,Levy was the one that prevented the move,,,,i dont blame the lad,,btw, he is still a quality player and is used to the epl and his price tag has gone down,,,if we cant get him Moutinho and Javi Martinez are also good for that role,,,Raul was just a back up plan so i think we might sell him to Juve and get the real plan & Chalobah can replace Essien
SameX
so does this mean we are going back to the high line...because that was not cool
heart_of_blue
I'd like to see Kakuta and McEachran be on our bench next season. Particularly Kakuta, Josh may be in need of a loan where he actually gets played.
BlueBanes
Welcome hazard. I have no concerns over skill. 2 years ago my friend from work said he uses him in FIFA 10 and he's great. I agree with gabeu though that he needs to learn a bit of modesty. Anyway we should give him a warm welcome and let his football do the talking. Less twitter and hopefully he can silence the critics by letting his boots do the talking :)
Clingy
Dont worry about Malouda he is already gone cos Marin,DeB,Piazon and Hazard are all primarily Left Wingers
SameX
I have a feeling hes gna be a nasri,We need HULK more, at least hazard will make chelsea on fifa 13 CRAZY
Humza_96
Gourlay said the club wanted all signings completed by the Euro's so once it's over and pre season begins everything is in place to go on the tour to America, I do think it will be 4/5 in and 4/5 out...the ins would be: Van Der Wiel, Hulk, Hazard, Marin and possibly Modric would also love Jovetic. outs are Bosingwa, Kalou, Drogba, Ferreira and Hopefully Malouda.. Although reports suggest he may stay...does anyone know how much we'd save in wages by offloading them players?
Splint1976
Cech, Ivanovich, Cahill /Terry Luiz Cole/ Bertrand Mikel/ Lampard/ Mereiles/ Ramirez /Hazard/De Bruyne/Piazon Torres /Hulk Sturridge , if we get Hazard and Hulk that is...perm wm anyway you like red hot!!
springy
forgot Marin *
springy
The wages would even out because ferriesra and marin have similar and so do malouda/drogba and hulk/hazard. bos and vdw will probably have the same i dnt think modric/jovetiv are coming id much rather prefer kagawa he will have low wages 70,000-90k max
Humza_96
Seems like a Pep Guadiola signing to me!!!
springy
If this signings and others (before announcing the manager) does this mean that perhaps a manager has already been decided? Hard to believe that large signings would be attracted to a team that doesnt even have a manager (what role to play, etc). Just a thought..

@Springy I AGREE

still can not believe the last 9 days we ended up european champions and now signed hazard beating city to the deal!!!

Chelsea statement to Associated Press: "As with all transfers, when we have something to announce we will announce it in the usual way." -

the triumph of good football desire over senseless "expert" advice...CHELSEA HAS ALL BUT SIGNED HAZARD...who's bad?? (Michael Jackson style) *LoL*
@Mq
The so-called "experts" call this expensive, unwarranted for and the talent in question arrogant but guess what, HE'S COMING TO THE CHAMPS LEAGUE WINNERS...Hazard first, Moura here we come :)
@Mq
exactly my point blue#8 there are going to be some unhappy players at chelsea next season unless you get some people of the door and i analysed you're squad because i am a massive football fan and i like looking at opposition to see if i can find any weaknesses and this my friend is one
redhotspur1234
out of the door*
redhotspur1234
Hazard is right footed, attacking mid/winger great vision for passing, good dribbler, fast, good pk and freekick taker, good shooter with both left/right foot. exactly what we need. Only bad part about his play is that he doesn't track back much.
Tiraspol
why would chelsea not announce this? however not even city, united have announced it either. come on chelsea confirm this!
MrDax
Have no idea why Spurs are posting here. You cockroaches and arsenal disgust me. Worry about your pathetic clubs and your attractive football you disgusting voyeurs. @gabe u, hazard's agent manipulated the whole situation and not Eden himself. I will suggest you read Miguel Delaney's blog about the acts of agents. Aguero was never coming to Chelsea because his wages are 250k plus. The plan has always to play hazard, mata and hulk behind "a striker".
KAKUfrank
stop hatin on the boy just be happy he joined us. better than what he have. hazaaaaaard!!!!!
kingsam
@kakufrank if we have that forward line how amazing would that be? i will be very surprised if hulk did not come now.
MrDax
I also don't understand the calls for shinji kagawa. Mata plays in his position. What is the point of a 20mm euro signing on the bench!!!!! Again, remember fergie agreed terms with Lille as well so was going to spend the cash (which they don't have) on hazard. Most importantly, Lille fans don't cry about his goal. 20 goals and 16 assists at the age of 21 is not easy at all.
KAKUfrank
The attacking threat of mata,hazard,hulk,torres would scare the ***** out of oppositions.....This kind of team would break records
Desmondadonis
I second that point kaku..Mata's position would be up for grabs if we buy kagawa...Mind u if we get him....I think he'll be the most creative player on the pitch......If mata and some key figures begin to hit the bench...The team might implode,mayb thats part of the reason they will give the job to our ego stroking tactical genius of a coach
Desmondadonis
As long as i didn't get to see Malouda in chelsea jersey come next season am okay.

Just in case some people don't know before posting stupid crap here; bosingwa has been released; kale is rumored to sign with scale or assnal for free. Malouda is on his way out although he,s been saying bull***** in the press since. He is trying to lineup a lucrative deal with a Turkish club. Essen is already a bench warmer so don't see how he will be crying. Sturbridge,s future is still up in the air.
KAKUfrank
Kalou is rumored to sign with schalke or assnal.

@kakufrank nice to hear that.particularly that aspect of Malouda and Bosingwa.i've tried my best and watched them this season but surely can't withstand seeing them here next season.

Desmondadonis
Not bad for our clueless board. Along with this and that funny looking trophy with big ears we just won, maybe some people on here can stop complaining a little bit...
BlueCowboy
Definitely a Pep signing.... I can't see the likes of Hazard and Hulk signing when they don't know who they are playing for... Perhaps Peps in the bag but wants a couple of weeks to relax and therefore the club don't want to announce anything, I must admit I like the way we as a club don't go shouting about who we want to sign, rather do our business quietly and call a press conference when those dotted lines have been signed, it's happened with Torres, Luiz, Marin and now Hazard, the one player everyone knew about was Modric and he didn't come, the rest have been nothing more than paper talk and the club has remained quiet, bodes well for our other targets.
Splint1976
Cech/Hilario/Turnbull: Van Der Wiel/Ivanovic/Kane: Terry/Cahill/Luiz/Chalobah: Cole/Bertrand: Mikel/Romeu/Lampard/Essien/Ramires: Hazard/Marin/Mata/Kakuta/Hulk/De Bruyne: Torres/Lukaku/Sturridge: Judging by that squad we're pretty set for next season already - could possibly have the need for a deep lying playmaker and another CF but I for one can't wait for the season to start!!!

I want paizon in the team nxt season but wit Marin and hazard and possibly hulk in the team I bet he's chances are slim. @kaku, if the plan is to play hazard, mata and hulk behind Torres where do we play ramires Cos mikel and lampard will surely get the last two spots in midfield.
manzo2k6
Meanwhile the Mail is nearly in tears, trying everything to put a damper on the Hazard celebrations. They cook up an absolutely t*** of a piece in saying Barca have joined Real in the Ivanovic 'race', despite the player publicly proclaiming he's very happy at the Bridge. They also claim Jose's trying to sign Drogba up, implying he ditched us only to go to Madrid. I sense a hint of desperation about these stories, I didn't find them anywhere else on the internet, seems the Mail is directly involved in the negotiations over both those deals, as only they seem to know. Martin Lipton on the Mirror is ardently wishing we regret signing Hazard, digging up just about every unsavory fact regarding the lad, why can't these people have a life?
Carefree_1990
I'm sure if he'd headed North, it'd be just "Glory Glory Backyard Manure'' trumpeted over all the tabloids. Wonder why they hate us so much!
Carefree_1990
....and Florent Malouda is considering offers from two clubs, one of which is Turkey-based. That cheered me up a little. Why would Barca want Ivanovic? They have great rightbacks in Alves and Montoya, and Ivanovic as a fallback option to Thiago Silva? Gimme a break, I'm sure they've watched him play at CB, with due respects, he's great at RB, but Bosingwa's equivalent of a CB.
Carefree_1990
i don enjoy mikel, i still believe we sholud get modric to sit in midfield behind the front three attackers. malouda essien kalou bosingwa out. n id prefer lucas moura over hulk to occupy our right wing spot. so dream sighnings will are definatly hazard modric and moura.
kingsam
oh and why have we forgotten all about mceachran
kingsam
can we now released flomo the *****mo? im sick hearing rumours that we will extend his contracts.. even bertrand better in left wing consider he is left back..
qodoqeoqeoq
what i would like to see is cech, iva cahill luiz cole, rammi obi, mata, hulk hazard, torez. in a 4-2-1-2-1 leaving mata and torrez free with hulk and hazard breaking outside. Let us get the Hulk and maybe a right back cover and we should be done for a year or two.
unclezillion
the rebuilding now begins!
Chelsea n Torres Fan
I agree with all those who said that now that we have signed Hazard there is absolutely no point having anything further to do with Kagawa or moura. Hulk though would still be very helpful because of his versatility as a right forward, winger and Center forward if required. Left to me i think if we can also get Hulk the only other signing we would have left is a central mid field utility player to take Michael Essiens role and provide cover in case Romeu decides to return to Barca.
GabeU
welcome to chelsea hazard.. ppl like radioactiveD can now stop cursing him .. he is a BLUE now...u made the right choice.. ur tweets were cocky but then so are rooney and wilsheres ...Torres mata hazard and hulk.. that is going to be on fearsome attack + mid.. u have come to chelsea FC and wil win many many trophies !!!
slash_blue
GabeU.. we got lampard, mikel ,romeu and ramires in the DM position.are we not sufficiently covered ? altho ramires is best as a CAM..but with these signings DM is the only place he can play if we go for a 4-2-3-1...we might go for a 4-4-1-1 as well though with eden just behind Torres !!
slash_blue
guys dont frget ferguson with his debt laden united was ready to pay 32m euros for hazard.. he is one hell of a signing.he was the top target for man city too..such a big signing this is for chelsea...wat worries me is whether mata is going to be ok playing on the left and also what formation are we going for now..we need to make the most of torres mata (hulk) hazard ramires and lamps ..going to be one helluva season.. the coach needs to be tactically very strong.. btw had a dream pep cam out of his sabbatical n joined chelsea O.o
slash_blue
Why isnt it official yet?? Guys this deal isnt done!!! Dont be sad when he today joins united! I believe it when it is announced on chelseas homepage!
austriablue
Couple of points : What formation we will play ? Hazard is 10 just like Mata. He may be unhappy since we will prefer Mata in 10 as he has been here for a season. Dont know whether Hazard is a great winger. We may not get Hulk particularly after signing Hazard. If it was not Hazard , I am sure we would have got Hulk. Because You have Ramireswho plays on the right side ? Where will you place him in the line up ? who was so influential in the last season. We wont sell him. Now what happens to likes of Piazon ? Mceachran and Kakuta ? That shows the owner had enough of finishing in 6th. He is not ready for any gamble. We cant think about finishing outside top 4. I think Piazon will be a substitute in first team.Fair enough. But will that leave Hazard happy ? He will want to play whole 90 mins. Manager has a tough task or he may leave in a year or two time. The other two may be again sent on loan. If thats the case I dont see Kakuta making cut at the top. Mceachran is 2 yrs younger to him. Even if Marin flops we can have him. Our back line is solid. We have the same problem just like the last year. Last year we dont know whom to put since many were not so good. This year also we dont whom to put since many are too good atleast now. We will see who plays so well with the team. Hazard may be Pep's signing. he does not have Messi here. So he will try to form a team with the possible available players. sturridge may leave. We need a back up cf for Torres. I dont to spend much on a back up player. Also at the same time , If Torres is injured he should be able to lead the line. Drogs would have fit that fantastically well. But he is gone. Cant blame him. Lets see.
Jay Blue 7
Also I think Marin played so well in the wings,I think him and Ramires will be used on the right.
Jay Blue 7
guys i have some info for the mates who dont know how much we earned from champs league. guys we earned £47.8 million from tv money (45 million was said because nobody assumed we will win. hence extra money for winning) and £19.5 million as champions league prize money for ehole tournament. and £1.5 million bonus from adidas and also 1 million bonus from samsung. also we could have earned only 3 million from uefa's market pool which is based on league positioning. but since we won it, we earned 9 million from there with other english taking a cut in their money. so in all we have earned £78.8 million from champions league. and this is excluding the gate receipts of champions league games. so expect the figure to cross £100 million mark considering gate receipts. WELCOME TO CHELSEA EDEN HAZARD!!!!
ChampionBlue
and also guys we will get loads of money next season for participation in champs league. so i am damn sure we will break even for ffp. and also because of this champs league win, our revenue is definately going to increase. it was crucial for us to qualify for cl next season. because with new deal feom next season onwards, it is almost 40-45 million for participating in it. so it would have been difficult for us to break even. so the new saying is, once you miss out on cl (& its money) you nearly fail on ffp. so i guess it might be last chance for spurs to get in cl and stay there forever and aldo push arsenal out of it. and i really want spurs to come up. they are ambitious, they want to become big club rather than the arsenal who just want to stay in top4 and that us there only ambition. once a big team gets arsenal in cl, they can be sure of going through. because dont give them a hard time. (ot just gives hard time but dont progress) but same can not be said of spurs. although i want modric to come to us.
ChampionBlue
@Jay Blue 7, Remember that Ramires is a box to box midfielder, who is meant to play in one of the two CDM positions. We used as a winger occasionally because we had no proper wingers. Hazard and De Bruyne will play on the wings next season.
ucmyway
Also, Piazon is 17, so it will be unlikely for him to appear on the subs bench.
ucmyway
@GabeU, Lamps, Mikel, Romeu, Ramires, Meireles (I know...), and possibly Mceachran/Chalobah cover that position. However, I would love to see us sign someone like Gabriel Pires for under £10 mill...
ucmyway
Oh How I wish Drogba could stay till January. Imagine Hazard, Mata, Ramires and Marin iving him the ball in or outside the box,,,, that's the EPL and FA cup in the bag.
Blue in Colorado
actually the midfield is the main cause of concern. we have got ramires mikel lamps essien romeu. but apart from lamps romeu and ramires other two just cant bring the ball forward. and lamps is not the future. he is on decline. so that left us with ramires romeu as only players with good football brains. and its not good enough. they cant play whole season. we need to sign one player with visuon. and i think modric is that player. romeu can keep modric and ramires on their heels and they will have to be rotated. and along with them McEacharan can evolve as well. i really dont think is going to teach anybody anything. he is only going to create problems in media whenever he is benched. and he will be benched. he is going to get benched with england also. i would love lampard to stay and finish here. but he is not someone who will stay back and contribute from bench. he is sulker in that case.
ChampionBlue
i dont think lampard* is going to teach anybody anything.

bluenath86
We need a good passing midfielder to complement this attack. Witsel, Sahin, Strootman all up for grabs
Diego_rodriguezz
For the CM position, I think we should try to steal Sahin or Granero from real madrid. None of them are having playing time there, therefore they should be attempted with a move. another option is Banega from valencia, he is a good CM too with great vision and passing ability. we can have one of them for less than 15 million, better than paying over 30 for Modric.
EliteBlue
@desmondadonis.. open your eyes and read my comments care fully.. i have not mentioned modric as DM. i just mentioned him as MIDFIELDER. i just felt that modric can be essential player to bring the ball forward from from midfield. so please behave properly.
ChampionBlue
Cobhamblue....Correct me if i am wrong u said romeu can keep modric and rammy on their heels.....Now i ask u,whats the position romeu play and what position do rammy play naturally b4 being used as a RW and LW. ..Modric is an attacking midfielder...Besides i'd rather josh be in that position and flourish than waste untold mills on modders
Desmondadonis
@GabeU, we are still talking to Porto about Hulk. Doesn't live a good taste in their mouth if we pull out now. Hulk is a good right forward player, but a ***** center forward. Not sure what striker roman is looking at, but looking like jovetic when we do pounce. Cavani is looking juvenile bound (if they can pay) while falcon is way too expensive unless we are sellin Torres. The only utility player that can truly replace Essen in my mind is Bilbao's Javier Martinez. @jayblues, depending on the manager we get, don't see hazard dictating his position to them. Like I said in another post. Hazard has played 40 percent of his games on the left wing, 50 percent on the right wing and about 10 percent in attacking midfield. There is still more to come this summer and I won't rule all coaches out.
KAKUfrank
Thank you Roman - our first marquee signing this summer - cant see Hazard going anywhere else
Dixons-Betting-Slip
@desmondadonis just keep quite modric plays as a deep lying play maker. and that should be one of the position in double pivote which we currently play. like currently tottenham play 2 central midfielders in parker and modric. that way i wanted to say. and if i ever make mistake in saying something then no mean to make fuss of it. but its just my opinion and not the final decision of any of the board member.
ChampionBlue
@cobhamblue,To buttress my point mate....Josh is as creative as they come,if he was at arsenal,tottenham or any other team..He might be starting...He collects the ball camly,he retains the ball,has good high for reading the game,passes well and a good tackler...I watched his games for us...He seldoms lose the ball or lose a good tackle.....The only thing modric have over him is a wicked shot......And besides we already have more than enough äcreativity in the team its true that we have signed hazard..
Desmondadonis
@kaku frank , javi martinez is gonna be a great addition . we already have a core to built a team around in ramires , mata , luiz and torres , we need a defensive midfielder and a right back. javi martinez and azipilicueta.
haji ahmed
@kakufrank.. i think now if we get hulk now, then that will be some attack and squad depth. and i also dont see sturridge having any future at bridge. because any how, i think we will get one hungry and younger striker as a back up to torres and also a little bit of competiton for him. and i also feel that role can be filled by lukaku.. no need to spend.
ChampionBlue
cobhamblue..Ièf u want take it personal....I am nt making a fuss as u implied and if u think i am...Well sorry abt it....But i'l be disappointed if start complaining abt youth growth not being promoted.....Why waste 25m-30m for modric...

I meant if it is true that we have signed hazard

i read somewhere that he will have his medical in chelsea when he comes to london to play the friendly against england.. so, i guess we will have to wait for a few days for the official statement..!

IF YOU THINKS MR ROMAN IS MAKING THOSE MOVES FOR MANAGERLESS CHELSEA THEN WHAT IS OUR SCOUTS DOING. The scouts work is to sniff out raw and proven talents all over the world and not the managers job,then who makes the purchase? THE DIRECTOR or OWNER.

Austriablue....My point too...Might be anoda robinho 2.0.....I'l be glad if he signs though
Desmondadonis
According to me this is a very good signing for the below reasons: 21> he is a fantastic player who can walk into any team. He is going to take us that 1 step higher. > by beating man utd and city in this, we are already are 1 up against them..we have got a good head start for the season psychologically. 3> he is only 21, even if he takes a few months or even a whole season to get used to the pace of premier league, it wont matter as he is very young.. 4> [the worst case scenario] say after having a good 3-4 seasons with us, if madrid/barca come calling for him, we can sell him for double of what we paid and will be a great piece of business. also, we might not be losing much as by then we will have our own superstars like paizon/feruz et all..
girichelsea
@desmondadonis.. its ok mate.. i got you wrong but you seem to be great person.. mate i just wanted to say that josh will not start all the matches and he is incapable of playing week in week out. so we need a solid starter (not specifocally it should be modric, bur i memtioned him as he quickly came to mind). and slowly and steadily we can bring him forward and make him a regular. that way it should be as i feel. if we are only going to play yungsters then it will be failed project as it happens to arsenal every year. the truth is they dont have any real amition and any solid players and that is why they regularly play younsters like wilshere and oxlade chamberlin

@slashblue oh my god man i have seen and heard so much things of transfers and other things in football! i only believe it when it is really official! ok it might be very true that he will join us BUT i have seen other things too!

Championblue....Awww cmmon no offence taken seriously.....I just wanted u to see another point worth considering.......I am sorry once again if i sounded like a condescending imp
Desmondadonis
Anyone thinking a 19 year old who has still not scored a goal in a Chelsea shirt that wasn't even on the bench for most games last season and didn't even light up the reserves will be a back up to Torres is dreaming. How many 19 year olds are back ups to champions league teams in Europe? It is not going to happen.
KAKUfrank
@KAKUfrank i absolut agree with you! I think that a loan deal is perfect for Romelu next season! Stoke would be nice for him! I think that CFC will buy Hulk too and have options all around!
austriablue
@dezmond.. no no... we are friends from today and i also agree with your points regarding youth developement. josh will need to train hard next season to proove himself. because he knew that he could not get into the p13 teams midfield so he will need to up the socks and train hard to get into the midfield of european champions. i think a loan move (where he actually plays.. may b bolton because he is good at taking the best out of youngster) may b needed. because the reality is he will get the game time of close to nothing at chelsea. so a loan move to championship for six month and a step forward and a loan move in premier league for next six month will be great for his confidence. because i do think this swansea move might have affected his confidence.
ChampionBlue
Slash blue....I think i am nt making myself believe it due to the robinho saga...I am just preparing my mind for the shoäck of what might happen if its end up being a teaser.....Besides there is a chelsea fan that says he stays around cobham.....I avnt heard confirmation of any like from him....On any medical being carried out.....@kaku i read kdb,josh,davila and lukaku would be given the preseason chance to prove themselve worthy of 1st team action suffix to say they got their destiny in their hands
Desmondadonis
Championsblue...U av a valid point...Bt i think with the swansea fiasco emenalo would be hesitant to loan him out again,cos there is high expectation from this lad by all.....My hypothesis is that he will be used at some capacity at the club as i explained in the articule i sent to merlin earlier
Desmondadonis
We are getting ahead of ourselves too much. as much as i want him to sign as soon as possible, let's wait until he actually signs on the dotted lines then we can go wild.

Hazard is reportedly asking for a salary of 200 K a week.I say that he can feck off.He's acting bigger than the club.My apologies to all the fans who want Hazard but I think he will create nuisance in the dressing-room the way he has been acting.Already,we have had so much of drama regarding these managers.I can't tolerate anymore.Let him go and warm up Man City's bench.
cfc250
According to one article chelsea have allowed Hazard to tweet about joining them as long as he doesnt give any interviews until he has offcially signed after the Belgium v England game. Therefore Chelsea are unlikely to confirm this signing until early next week due to medical etc. As everyone from the BBC to ESPN and SKY SPORTS have said its chelsea he's coming to Id just sit back and enjoy the realisation we are about to sign a true world class talent.
gyverblues
@cfc250, don't be a mug. If you would rather he go to city then you are a fool. Everyone in the 'dressing room' will undoubtedly recognise hazard as a talent who we cannot afford to miss out on, he wont disrupt anything
gyverblues
There is a manager behind he scene that is doing the signing since he does not want to be put to public at the moment. We are to learn it very soon.
Kendemsblue
Off topic guys,my appologies....Just bear with me...... Trolls like @mq dont understand the intricasies and passion of football they keep insulting the old legends who ensured that this victory and excitement of being able to bid for world class players for our club....Here is a link on what the old guard of man utd are doing.... http://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/joyce-giggs-scholes-ideal-role-models-man-utd-youngsters-3202911
Desmondadonis
And here is another point on what i said about keeping rdm as coach...Apparently @mq doesnt know anything abt rdm yet he is the first person to ßslate our champions league winning coach....@mq is a plastic fan in my own opinion http://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/brighton-boss-poyet-di-matteo-can-get-chelsea-playing-style-3202751

its says on the official MUFC website that Chelsea have beaten them to signing Hazard so i dont he meant that european champion

@Desmond.Ignore @Mq.He is an attention seeker.Let him whine.Who cares!Who gives a feck!
cfc250
@desmond, we should know the script by now. Every season, we announce they will be given a chance to prove themselves, but we end up loaning them. A lot of people believe they will be going on loan. Stoke city is a waste Of time formlukaku. They play lump the ball footy which doesn't look like what we would play in the future. Chelsea won't buy any players from stoke except the keepers.
KAKUfrank
i am getting really anxious now, i remember all too well the robinho saga! dont want that to happen again. i believe that he has agreed to sign for us, but that nagging 5% dosent trust it one bit as he likes to play games. i await official confirmation. just hurry up about it.
Blue1989
@gyverblues.Control your emotions and chill out mate.I was one of the few people who wanted Hazard to come to CFC long time ago.Many did not even know his name.But the way he has acted in choosing the club has disappointed me.He is demanding 200K a week.He is demanding the number 10 jersey.It won't be long before he gets into a row with the senior players,given his ego.
cfc250
hazard has become like one of those flirtatious lap dancers, if he does come to Chelsea, he better keep quiet or get eaten by those media scavengers out there...
shaf86
@KAKUfrank ...Finally, you've also found that 22-year Athletic Bilbao player Javi Martinez (CM / DM) can match to our squad as cherry on the cake. He is a good, solid and strong player, he has enough pace with good technique (both way: offensive and defensive) and he has quite a lot of room for improvement. I read that MCity is interested to buy him. Also I heard that Mourinho wants to sell Nuri Sahin. Also Axel Witsel is worth to mention as option as CM/DM. To RB position I think someone like Daniel Opare would be ideal. Cheap and good team player. Also he has a lot of potential. Hazard is decent signing, so is Hulk (if we finish the deal).
CFCblue.est
hope dis guy could become our world best........... yea
Torres9ghana
@cfc250, i agree with opinions that he has gone the wrong way about it but at the same time he's 21 years old and the biggest clubs in the world are all out to sign him, of course hes going to play this kind of game, so would I! He can demand what he wants and thats the same with any top class player, twitter has become huge in sports and he wont be the last player to use it to his own ends and he isnt the first. Chelsea will pay what they think he is worth, as for the number 10 issue, he stated he likes playing in the 'number 10 position' and that he will ask belgium for 'the number 10 shirt.' He hasnt said he wants the number 10 shirt at his new club, all the articles seem to say 'evidently he will as for the number 10 shirt' its not a quote. We should worry less about what shirt number he wants or what money he will be paid (taking into account the super tax rate) and more about the fact we have trumped city and utd over a top class player.
gyverblues
guys who r again and again saying about salary.. listen.. hazard is going to earn £170k a week. that means he will be on par with torres. top players need to be paid top dollar. do you know which teams have the biggest wage bill in the world? its barca and madrid. they easily lure players to play for them, but then why players dont accept lowet salaries to play for them?? because it doesnt work that way. many people on VC seem to be dreaming of trying to succeed where arsenal have failed. that is the wage cap or ceiling whatever you call it. and with money flowing our way players will.want higher salaries. i wont be surprised if mata and david luiz ask club for pay hike. we need to cover those salaries through revenue and marketing. and if we stopped firing managers, and pay compensations, we will break even in ffp. i have to admit that hazard has got 20k a week more. but i think more than that, club wanted to have one over machester. specially roman. and they did it in style.
ChampionBlue
Yea i heard $o too and that particular bit is disappointing.....A 21yr old for that matter...What is the world turning to? Now he will be earning much more than mata,cole,jt,lamps and everybody else...He has to justify that by scoring a goal per game and an aßssist too....If his reported salary is true
Desmondadonis
Guys, just to clear something up, it's reported 100k a week NOT 170k! But could still be either, and I doubt we'll see a huge pay hike for Mata or Luiz because they're both quite down to earth, but we may see a little increase (e.g. for Mata from 65k to 80k or something like that).
GhostWriter
Well, 170k a week for hazard is someting i dont believe is true, Hazard had terms agreed with ManU and City, and i dont think manure would ever agreed to pay him that much. It was reported hes getting around 500,000euros in a month, that is around 100,000pounds pw. The media are saying that figure is after tax, but i know they are saying that because its Chelsea.
RayBell
to attract the best talent you have to give them "suitable" salaries to ward of competition. Forget the football of old when players moved to clubs for passion, if you want passion give them the "paper-action" and they'll perform. Don't you think it's ironic that the "best European Clubs" (according to UEFA) are also the highest payers (Madrid and Barcelona)?? It's all about the Benjamins (Ice Cube said) and you'll know what this means. If Lamps (a part-bit past it player) can be paid 150K, what more a younger, WAY BETTER and more exciting player get??
@Mq
It's not ironic, its logical.
rslack
But paying higher salaries doesn't a "best European Club" make. The two things are independent, although a relationship appears to exist. Torres has been receiving a substantial salary, but that hasn't directly translated to goals. Pa***** Cissé was an excellent signing for Newcastle, but we cannot say that his 13 goals in 14 appearances would be better if Madrid were paying him twice his current wages. Likewise it is pointless to comment about paying Lampard money that we are contractually obligated to pay. It's not an argument, it's whining.
rslack
using Lamps as an exhibit @RSLACK...but look at the performances of us in our Mourinho days, Barcelona and to a certain extent Madrid and you'll see the correlation of high salaries and success although this is not very evident on the continental stage where you need some luck to go with that but in the respective leagues you'll see the correlation. It's a fact that in the modern football spectra high salaries have become the norm to attract top talent hence I'm definitely not against our pursuit and seeming agreement although I'll quickly point out that I doubt we paying Hazard more than Torr-mentor
@Mq
Just crossing my fingers for the Official Confirmation
Kendemsblue
Using big words doesn't make your argument any better. The simple facts is that money helps, but does not equate to success. And your comment about Lamps, even if itis merely an "exhibit", is a very poor point to make. Adebayor spent this year making £170000/week with Spurs and City splitting the tab. Lampard, the "a part-bit past it player", played in more games and scored two fewer goals this season than Ade. So keep your whining "exhibits" to a minimum please.
