LONDON, NETRALNEWS.COMEden Hazard is said to have almost certainly leave Chelsea next season. However, the Blues do not seem to want to lose the star player, so they pegged Hazard at a price of trillions of rupiah.

Hazard has been blatantly wanting to leave Stamford Bridge. The decision will be announced after the Europa League final against Arsenal on Thursday (05/30/2019) Indonesian local time. Real Madrid may become the next destination for the 28-year-old forward.

However, Chelsea don't seem to want to take Hazard off easily. The UEFA transfer ban sent Roman Abramovich's club trying hard not to lose an important player. Chelsea seem not to be ready to lose Hazard for free because the player's contract will expire in the summer of next year.

According to a report from Sky Sports, Chelsea has offered Hazard to Madrid for 130 million pound sterling. In fact, the estimated price of Madrid is only 88 million pounds (Rp. 1.61 trillion). The price is as high as it is already fantastic for players who will be completing one more year on his contract.

Hazard is a vital player for the Blues. Just look at the game statistics. Since being recruited from Lille for 38 million pounds in 2012, Hazard has scored 108 goals in 351 appearances to help his team win two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a League Cup.

However, even if the Belgian midfielder finally left, Chelsea had a substitute in Christian Pulisic who had just been bought from Borussia Dortmund since January 2019. Pulisic was bought before Chelsea was punished by a ban on registering players in two transfer windows.
