Two summer transfer windows ago, Paul Pogba broke the transfer record with his £89m move from Juventus to Real Madrid. And Neymar’s £200m switch from the Catalans to PSG is the current world transfer record and Eden Hazard has joked his price tag could be even more than Neymar’s.
“Someone will have to pay a fortune in order for Chelsea to sell. Yeah, it’s that, that’s what football is right now,” Hazard told Onze Mondial.
“Ever since Neymar and co signed for €100 or €200 million… Now, a team needs a king’s ransom for everyone!” he added, laughing. “That’s the problem.”
He then added: “As I’ve said, I’m here right now, I want to finish my year as well as I can. After that, I have two years left on my deal. We’ll see what happens.
“As a joke last time I said that I was worth €300 million. Have I gone up by another €50 in two months? €350m, that’s still a lot,” he said bursting into laugher again.
“No, honestly, I have no idea. I can’t say too much about this because Chelsea will never sell me otherwise! I honestly don’t know.”
