Chelsea: Ballon D'or Favorite, Hazard's Promise, Support System Around Saul


Jorginho has been taunted by many to be the favorite to clinch the Ballon d’Or award but it is no secret by now that Lionel Messi stands at the top of the list of nominees to win the coveted award this year. Jorginho was a pillar of strength in Chelsea’s midfield especially when paired with Ngolo Kante who constantly brought the best out of Jorginho. The Italian midfielder won the Champions League and the Euro 2020 competitions, effectively boosting his chances of making it into the top five of the Ballon d’Or shortlist.

His performance this season has not been anything short of impressive and Thomas Tuchel has time and again expressed how delighted he is to have a talented player like Jorginho in his squad. As the day of the Ballon d’Or event nears, pressure on Jorginho to perform this season is slowly gaining momentum since he has to outshine Messi who is still trying to find his form in PSG.

Eden Hazard

After signing for Real Madrid, Eden Hazard had promised Chelsea fans that once he accomplishes what he went to do at Real Madrid, he will come back to Chelsea and finish his legacy. And true to his word, rumors linking the 30-year-old to a move to Chelsea have already surfaced online. Reports have shown that Hazard is open to moving back to Chelsea because life at Real Madrid in the past 3 years has not been easy.

Chelsea on the other hand are proceeding with transfer negotiations cautiously because they do not want to trigger problems with Real Madrid. Signing Hazard will be a very hard task, but if Real Madrid manage to sign Mbappe in the next summer, then Hazard will be almost free to leave.


Chelsea’s Saul Niguez is yet to find his golden chance at Chelsea but analysts have said that he will soon unleash his potential and Chelsea fans will be wowed by what he can do in a tactical aspect. Thomas Tuchel has been very supportive of the player's situation at Chelsea and has given him ample playing time as he hopes to trigger his form. Saul has also been working very hard in training to build up his momentum and form as he seeks to better Chelsea’s odds of winning the EPL title this season.
