Chelsea and Madrid to do player-swap?


Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale swapping clubs?

According to reports, Chelsea and Real Madrid could be part of one of the biggest ever player-swap deals which could see Eden Hazard go one way, and Gareth Bale go the other.

Speculation has been high regarding the futures of both wingers, and with Madrid interested in Hazard and Chelsea keen on Bale, the two parties could negotiate a stunning swap deal.

Bale’s Struggles

Bale had a stunning debut season in Spain but has suffered from second season syndrome during the 2014/2015 campaign and fans have quickly got on the Welshman’s back.

Manchester United are desperate to lure the winger back to the Premier League but it looks like the ball is in Chelsea’s court with the power of a swap-deal.

As well as a potential Hazard/Bale swap, there has been talk of a David De Gea/Bale swap plus United paying some money as a transfer fee, but those reports have died down in recent weeks.

Madrid Pushing Deal

According to the English media, Madrid are pushing forward a potential swap-deal and are keen to find out whether Chelsea would be interested or not.

However, in recent interviews, both Jose Mourinho and Hazard rubbished reports suggesting a move to the Bernabeu could be happening at the end of the current season.

Hazard Value

Mourinho admitted that he values Hazard at around £200million, which he explained as £100m-per-leg, but with the chance to sign Bale an option, he could be persuaded to do the deal.

  1. what sort of stupid and senseless swap deal is that. why should chelsea swap a prayer who’s at the top of his game with a stuggling prayer. it doesn’t make sense

  2. That’s not good for business,as a Chelsea fan,we don’t need Bale,sign Griezman,Varane,Pogba and Austin and we’re set for England and European glory

  3. We don’t need Bale but Madrid needs Hazard because his the best and that’s why Chelsea will never sell him,all we need is Griezman,Pogba,Varane and another striker and we’re set for glory

  4. We don’t need Bale, sign
    Griezman, Varane, Pogba and Austin and We’re set for all competition in England and European Champions League glory.

  5. If madrid doesn’t need bale anymore, let them sell him. But, as for Hazard, let him stay. For, he is d current best player . Madrid are aware of dis, d@ is why they are seeking for player swap. Better still, let them swap bale for Mikel Obi.

  6. Hazard is our best player, so no need for any deal leaving chelsea. we love him and wil keepon making us happy for premier league. if anything buy us anothor striker.

  7. all chelsea need is a good winger like griezman and a central forward who know are to handle the ball and know where the net is player like cavani

  8. why swapping Hazard, if Madrid is desperate about swapping, they should go for Cuadrado or Mikel Obi. Chelsea need more players to further boost their attacking force not to swap or sell reliable player like Hazard.

  9. Chelsea should not even try dat kind of deal. If Madrid want to sell bale to Chelsea, they should sell him bt bringing dat kind of deal Is totally rubbish. Unless Chelsea wnt to religate

    • that ain’t good….dump that… how can u take a stick 2 school to write with and you left a pen at home

  10. Jose Mourinho, that deal cannot hold. Eden Hazard has no equal yet, take that from me. If Madrid want to sell bale we can discuss business but for Hazard swap, capital no man.

  11. Hazard is far better than Bale and that will total loss to chelsea even Bale is injury prone so its adirty bussiness
