Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel's personal stance on Eden Hazard transfer return explained

Chelsea is rumored to be interested in signing Eden Hazard during the summer transfer window.

According to rumors, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has taken a personal stand on any potential return of Eden Hazard. 

Despite his troubles at Real Madrid, the Blues are being linked with a surprising homecoming for the Belgian international. However, a blockbuster return to Stamford Bridge is far from likely.


Chelsea won the Champions League last season, finishing fourth in the Premier League and reaching the FA Cup final.

While that is the case, they are aiming to add to their roster this summer.

As of now, Erling Haaland is Chelsea's primary target. Roman Abramovich is eager to bring him to west London after he scored 40 goals for Borussia Dortmund.

The issue is that Dortmund does not want to sell the 21-year-old. Especially because they have already lost Jadon Sancho to Manchester United.

As a result, Chelsea is being linked with a deal for Hazard.

However, according to the Spanish daily AS, Tuchel is “not in a hurry” to add another winger because he already has Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, and Hakim Ziyech at his disposal.

Chelsea's interest appears to be driven by the board.

According to reports, the Blues are willing to welcome the Belgium international back to the club two years after he left for a move to Spain.

Real, for their part, would be delighted to conduct business. This summer, they aim to spend as much money as possible, with club president Florentino Perez eyeing Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

They are seeking a fee of around £52 million for the forward, despite already spending close to £100 million in 2019.

It remains to be seen whether Chelsea will eventually bring Hazard back to the club.

He was a tremendous hit during his time at Stamford Bridge, which he joined from Lille in the summer of 2012.

The Blues won the Champions League that year, and despite being courted by Manchester United, Hazard chose to stay in the city.

In 352 appearances for the club, the 30-year-old scored 110 goals.

During his stint with the club, he also won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, and two EFL Cups.

Individually, he was named PFA Players' Player of the Year in 2015.

That same year, he was named Premier League Player of the Year after leading Chelsea to a league title under Jose Mourinho.

Hazard, on the other hand, stated in May that a return to the Premier League was ‘out of the question.'

"I still have a three-year deal with Real Madrid, so returning to England is out of the question," he stated.

“Everyone knows that my first two years were a disaster, therefore I want to show myself at Real Madrid first. I will do everything in my power to do this.

"Given my contract status, I don't see me leaving Madrid."

"I know who I am and when I'm in shape." If that's the case, I'll be ready to give it my all for Real Madrid next season. That is my strategy."

Tuchel praised Hazard in April.

"He is a top-level player and has been a significant player for many years at this club and in this league, which is the most difficult in the world," Tuchel said.

"You're so consistent. I have the utmost regard for him. He's a huge player, and there are a lot of people here that are familiar with him.

"He was a prominent player for this team before joining Real Madrid."
