Chelsea’s Hazard linked with Barcelona switch

first_img Sport EN Hazard could be the super-signing that Barcelona are looking into to take advantage of Real Madrid’s transfer ban. Barcelona have joined the list of clubs that want Chelsea’s Belgian player Eden Hazard. According to the English press, they would pay 87 million euros to sign the Chelsea forward.  FC Barcelona want to make this offer in the summer, it’s reported, and rob Real Madrid of a player they also want – Los Blancos will serve a transfer ban when the current window closes. Manchester United are another club in the hunt for Hazard, although the player, it’s understood, would choose Barça.  The 24-year-old, who grew frustrated at the club’s struggling situation at the end of the Jose Mourinho era, was looking for an exit. However, the arrival of Guus Hiddink seems to have slightly changed things.  Hazard also has an offer to improve his contract with Chelsea, even though the London club already have him tied down until 2020. center_img 19/01/2016 Upd. at 14:01 CET Now he is much more relaxed, prepared to wait to see how the Blues’ situation changes. However, he remains open to offers. last_img read more

As a result, the German had been heavily linked with a move outside of north London prior to the January transfer window, with suitors including Premier League rivals Manchester United. However, Ozil’s agent Dr. Erkut Sogut says he is going nowhere.As per reports from Goal, he said: “I would prefer not to speak publicly about Mesut’s situation but, given the recent speculation linking him with a move away from Arsenal, I do feel it is important to provide some clarity, so we can end this and focus on football.Advertisement “Mesut signed a new contract last January, because he saw his future at Arsenal, and nothing has changed in his mind.“He wants to stay for the duration of that contract and maybe even longer.”Advertisement Dr. Sogut also added that Ozil was a 100% committed to the club and that he had a great relationship with his team-mates, the staff and fans. Ozil is currently on the sidelines with a knee injury and sat out the defeat at Liverpool and the victory over Fulham. Advertisementlast_img read more

Powered by Firework Everton centre-back Michael Keane understands the importance of the Merseyside derby for the fans but also believes that the title race for Liverpool adds extra incentive for Evertonians to get one over their neighbours.Advertisement The 26 year old Englishman spoke to Sky Sports at length about the mentality of this Everton side.Advertisement “It’s not the main reason we want to win the game – we want to win the game for ourselves,” the centre-back said when asked if dashing Liverpool’s hopes provides additional motivation.“We’re chasing seventh place ourselves, but in the back of our heads, if we can take points off Liverpool and get a win, that will dent their title chances which is great. That should make the fans happy.Advertisement “We want to put in a performance and we want to win the game, and we want the fans to be happy. If that’s what they want, then that’s what we want.”In the reverse fixture, Divock Origi memorably stole the winning goal at Anfield. Since then, the blue side of Merseyside has undergone a disheartening slump and have managed only 3 wins since then.Getting revenge on Liverpool, dragging them down in the title race, kick-start a positive run of results – Did anyone say Everton lack motivation?
