According to former Chelsea player Alan Hudson, the Blues were wrong to sell Eden Hazard and should have done more to keep him at Stamford Bridge.

The Belgium international was the best player in the Premier League during his time at Chelsea, and he’s proven hard to replace since his big move to Real Madrid in summer 2019.

“I would have found a way to keep Hazard no matter how much he wanted to leave, and brought in some better quality midfield player to play with him, like Jack Grealish,” Hudson told CaughtOffside.

“Roman didn’t need the money and there’s always a way around these things. I know Frank wasn’t in charge but I have a feeling he would have begged on his knees for another two years out of him – who knows?”
