Barcelona are reportedly planning a shock move for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, having failed in their attempt to sign Ateltico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann this summer, according to reports.
The Catalan giants, according to the Daily Express, reported they were in pole position to sign Griezmann at the end of the season, which reports have suggested talks are ongoing with the Belgian representatives.
However, with the Frenchman committing his long-term future with the Rojiblancos, this has seen Barcelona running after Hazard as their new target. Although, Hazard has been heavily touted to join Real Madrid in recent months and remains to be seen how his future unfolds with Chelsea this summer.
Hazard is yet to sign a new deal at Chelsea, despite insisting he wants to remain at Stamford Bridge.
Having been linked with move to Barcelona, majority of the La Liga club fans have taken to different social media platforms expressing delights in seeing the player join their club this summer.
Hazard have been photo-shopped in Barcelona’s Nike home kit for the 2018/19 season which looks hard to believe whether or not if it’s real or not.
Although, Chelsea are believe to be working on offering him a new deal but he has revealed he’s only going to sign for a new contract until he knows the club’s stance on who will replace Antonio Conte this summer and the signings of new players.
Seeing Hazard joins Barcelona would be a huge loss to the team and fans.
