Chelsea are ‘at a crossroads’ and Eden Hazard MUST leave for Real Madrid, claims Graeme Souness

Eden Hazard must leave for Real Madrid this summer as Chelsea are ‘at a crossroads’, former Liverpool captain Graham Souness has claimed.

Former midfielder Souness, writing in his Sunday Times column, started by insisting Hazard must push himself more to achieve bigger things in the game.

Hazard must move to Real Madrid to further his career, claims Souness

“Where will Chelsea be without him [Hazard]?” Souness writes. “To lose him would be a huge blow because he’s their one outstanding talent.

“The word is he’s a really good lad, but he can be accused of getting in his armchair a bit during games and drifting out of them.

“That’s why it’s now or never. He needs to be in a more challenging environment.

“He has been fabulous for Chelsea but needs to be pushed, by himself or the environment he’s in, to go to the next level. Moving to Real Madrid can bring that out of him.”
