Chelsea told ‘Hazard no Messi’ as target Mahrez tells Man City he wants summer exit
Chelsea transfer target Riyad Mahrez has reportedly told Manchester City that he wants to leave the club at the end of the season.
Eden Hazard has had a decent season for us, but nobody is talking about his performances and have been talking about the fact that he has not signed a new contract as he waits to see if Madrid make that bog money move at the end of the season.
And if the transfer ban does get overturned, we have been boosted by reports which have suggested that Mahrez has told City that he would like to leave the club at the end of the season in search of more regular game time, according to the Daily Mail website.
Costing £60m last summer, Mahrez has been an unused substitute in the last three games and has made his feelings known around the club.[the_ad id=”164″]
Meanwhile, Craig Burley thinks ace Eden Hazard is ‘not Lionel Messi’ and the Blues are too reliant on the Belgian.
Hazard, who has been constantly linked with a mega money move to Real Madrid at the end of the season, has been in terrific form for us this season and is the main reason why we are still in the hunt for a top four spot and a Europa League title.
But Maurizio Sarri has been told by Burley that the winger is no Messi and that the side are too reliant on the Belgian.
“Chelsea’s plan this season has been to get the ball to Eden Hazard,” he said on ESPN FC.
“When that fails, the plan is to get the ball to Eden Hazard, then it’s still the same, and everybody is waiting on this guy. He’s had a good season, but he’s carrying so much weight on his shoulders of those who haven’t performed consistently.
“He’s not Messi. He’s a great player, very good player, but you can’t rely on him to get 40 goals per season. Others have to take charge, take responsibility.
“Too often they think ‘he’ll dig us out of the hole, he’ll get us a result’, but today proved that isn’t always going to be the case.”
