Since Chelsea announced former Paris Saint-Germain manager, Thomas Tuchel as their new coach to replace the London club former captain Frank Lampard whose job got terminated by the club's management in mid-season last this year, the German international has transformed Chelsea into a club that no team in Europ wants to play against.
According to multiple reports, the acclaimed pride London Chelsea has reportedly held 'informal' talk with Spanish giants Real Madrid over re-signing their former key midfield maestro Eden Hazard back to Stamford bridge but the Spanish club wants Reece James included in the deal. The article states two important that may happen to Chelsea's current squad if they should consider a squad deal for Reece James with Eden Hazard in the January transfer window next year.
For Chelsea to swap Reece James for Eden Hazard could be a good deal for Thomas Tuchel's squad because they lack a good ball holder/controller in the midfield. But what are the consequences Chelsea could find themselves in if they agree to this swap deal?
1. Chelsea's Thomas Tuchel could be set to lose another young academy graduate just like they did with Tammy Abraham (AS Roma).
Agreeing to swap 21 years old right back with a 30 years old midfielder, is something that shouldn't be considered if Chelsea wants to groom a team that will play for decades together. Yes, Eden Hazard is a world-class player but his age limit could hinder his performance in Chelsea's current squad. The team is currently filled with young talents who are between 18-28 years old.
2. The club may be at a loss of £5 million if they agree to the swap deal.
Currently, Chelsea's Reece James net worth is valued at around £45 million while the Belgian international Eden Hazard has a net worth of around £40 million despite being sold to Real Madrid at £100 million in 2019. The big question here is, would it be a good deal for Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea?
