Harry Redknapp issues major warning over Chelsea star’s future

first_imgHarry Redknapp has told talkSPORT Chelsea would immediately become a lesser team if Eden Hazard leaves the club to join Real Madrid.The Blues talisman recently admitted that he is constantly wrestling in his mind over where his future lies – Stamford Bridge or the Bernabeu. Hazard has been on fire for Chelsea so far this season – with eight goals and three assists in ten appearances Hazard is torn between staying at Chelsea or moving to Real Madrid 2 2 “A lot of people at the start of the season probably didn’t fancy Chelsea as contenders, but the start they’ve had puts them in the picture.“So to lose Hazard would be a disaster. Without him they’re nowhere near the same team – he’s that good.“They’ve got to do everything in their power to hang onto him, but at the end of the day it’s going to be down to the player.“It will be difficult to hang onto him when Real Madrid come calling.” Speaking on international duty, Belgium star Hazard told the media: “Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January.”Real are expected to make a move for Hazard either in January or next summer, and many feel his self-confessed ‘dream’ move to the Spanish giants is inevitable.Others believe he could be persuaded to remain at Chelsea, but Redknapp says there is little the London club will be able to do.And he claims losing Hazard would be a ‘DISASTER’ for the Blues, who are ‘not the same team without him’.“He’s won it and done it all at Chelsea and, if Real Madrid come, it’ll be difficult to hang onto him in all honesty,” the former Tottenham boss said on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“If they lose him it’s a massive blow. They’ve started the season in great form. They’ve put themselves in a good position where they can be challenging.last_img
