Chelsea have finally decided to give star player, Eden Hazard’s number 10 shirt to forward, Callum Hudson-Odoi, when the Belgian finally leaves Stamford Bridge this summer’s transfer window.
Hazard looks likely to leave for Spain, after he confirmed in an interview after the final Premier League game of the season, that he, “has made his decision,” regarding his future.
Real Madrid are yet to agree a fee with the Blues for the 28-year-old as they haggle over a price between €100million and €130m.
However, Daily Mail is now reporting that Chelsea board wants Hudson-Odoi to wear Hazard’s No. 10 shirt in a bid to persuade the England youngster to sign a new contract extension.
The report claimed that Chelsea hierarchy will hold talks with the player’s representatives before the end of the month.
Hudson-Odoi, who currently has less than a year in his current deal at Chelsea, has also drawn interests from Bayern Munich, PSG and Juventus in recent months.
