Of all the most popular trophies in the transfer market, this is perhaps our favorite of the genre: pretending that a player in tatters to be photographed in the new kit of his current club suggests that he will stay.
The Daily Express even lost its head in this story with the headline. 'Eden Hazard has been photographed with a new leak in the Chelsea kit as fans hope this suggests a transfer tip,' says the site, although the URL is a bit sexier:
The story is based on Twitter users who point out that Hazard, who is modeling the new club kit, is a clear indication that he will remain at Chelsea this summer instead of moving to Real Madrid. Because that's how it works.
The Express website has another update on the situation, even saying that the Belgian "missed a tip" about where he will play next season. That should be good.
Eden Hazard, star of CHELSEA, hinted that he will stay in the club after the 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford, reads the first paragraph, which clearly wants you to read 16 conclusions. They have some lovely phrases after the match.
"Chelsea have to play in the Champions League every year," the striker told Sky Sports, ignoring this season. "Chelsea are one of the biggest clubs in the world and I even want to play in the Champions League. But we will.
And that's the big tip. This is not Hazard vowing to help Chelsea qualify for the Champions League, nor is he saying exactly the right things to placate all parties while his future continues on the air. No, that's a tip he's going to get next season. If only he'd said all this while wearing the new club kit.
Sunday morning (rain is falling) brought news from Manchester City interest in Harry Maguire. It was said that the current leaders of the Premier League would probably have to break Virgil van Dijk's world record rate so that a defender could conquer the giant Leicester, with City eager to strengthen his backline.
Aymeric Laporte had a couple of questionable performances recently, Vincent Kompany is no longer the standard required to be a regular starter, and John Stones seems strangely broken. As for Nicolas Otamendi, his spell on Etihad "is over."
The quotation from the Daily Star "the Argentine version of the Mark" – something we did not know was one thing – how to say "the player wants to leave the city" as part of a mission to play more often and maintain its international place.
The link they use in the story is broken, which is useful and does not lead us to believe that the whole thing is a bunch of shit. But apparently West Ham (obviously), Wolves and River Plate would all be interested in the 31-year-old who would rather stay in Europe.
