Football rumors: Eden Hazard on the verge of Chelsea return?
What the newspapers say
Edenic danger has been tipped for a possible return to Chelsea amid the winger’s struggles at Real Madrid. The Daily Mirror, citing Spain’s El Nacional outlet, said the 30-year-old could be on his way back to Stamford Bridge with Blues bosses who have reportedly held informal talks with Madrid executives. Hazard’s experience at the Bernabeu has been marred by injuries, with the Belgium international missing more games than he has played.
The Sun, via Fichajes, report that Newcastle have set their sights on the Arsenal striker Alexandre lacazette, with the club’s new bosses considering a potential move in January. The 30-year-old has eight months left on his contract and is reportedly hungry for a change of scenery and more consistent first-team action.
Staying with Newcastle, The Telegraph says ex-Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre has emerged as a potential candidate to replace the director of Magpies Steve bruce. Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is also believed to be on the shortlist for the role.
Feyenoord braces for another attempt to land the Manchester United winger Amad Diallo, according to Le Soleil. The 19-year-old was due to be loaned to the Dutch side this summer, but that decision was overturned by a pre-season injury.
The newspaper also says Manchester United will consider selling their midfielder Jesse Lingard in January if he doesn’t sign a new contract at Old Trafford.
