Thomas Tuchel reportedly doesn’t want to add any more attacking wide players to his squad amid suggestions Chelsea might revive Eden Hazard.
This is according to AS, who claim the Blues boss is content with most of the forward options already situated in his team.
Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, and Callum Hudson-Odoi make up a front line that any coach would envy.
Add the potential addition of a new no.9 and Chelsea’s offensive force will be one of, if not the, finest in Europe.
Back home for Hazard?
It could be even more star-studded if Hazard was to make a stunning return to Stamford Bridge.
In the same article, AS state that Real Madrid have offered the injury-laden 30-year-old back to the Blues.
Following his £130m (Sky Sports) move to Los Blancos in 2019, the Belgian has hardly kicked a football thanks to repeated trips to the treatment room.
Madrid have seemingly already lost patience with the once dazzling dribbler and want him gone this summer.
For the romantics, a reunion with Chelsea is the only viable option for Chelsea.
He spent seven, successful, trophy stuffed years in South West London, where his status as one of the Premier League’s finest talents was established.
Thomas takes control
However, it appears Tuchel has no room in his expensive ensemble for another headliner name.
This isn’t to say the Blues manager doesn’t have respect for Hazard or his legacy.
Before Chelsea took on Madrid in the Champions League last season, the German had nothing but praise for the no.7.
“He (Hazard) is a top-quality player and a key player for many years at this club and this league, the hardest in the world,” said Tuchel.
But compliments only go so far and sadly for Hazard, this might be as close he gets to his former club again.
