Ex-Chelsea player, coach and supporter Ray Wilkins has warned Chelsea not to sell Eden Hazard who he described as irreplaceable. Wilkins believes if Chelsea wants to be the best club in the world, then Chelsea shouldn’t be selling Hazard.
Wilkins also warned he would give up his season ticket if Hazard is sold.
“It looks a very good front page, but that’s about as far as it goes,” Wilkins told Sky Sports.
“For Chelsea to lose Hazard, who is one of the five best players on the planet, they would have to replace this guy and he is irreplaceable at this moment in time.
“He’s a wonderfully gifted footballer and why would Chelsea want to give him up? I don’t see there’s any money out there..[owner] Roman Abramovich has an enormous amount of money himself.
“I couldn’t give a monkey’s what they offer. Chelsea wish to be the best club on the planet and they’re heading in the right direction.
“What they’ve done over the past 10-12 years has been nothing short of phenomenal, so if you want to be the best why sell the best? They’ll never get there if they sell Eden Hazard, who has been absolutely brilliant.
“I would imagine Mr Abramovich would not even consider any offer that comes in. You cannot replace him. If they sell him I’ll give up my season ticket. He’s that important.”
