Chelsea’s Thorgan Hazard wanted permanently in Germany

Borussia Monchengladbach are keen to keep the talented young Belgian at the club on a permanent basis.

Of the array of young Chelsea talent on loan across Europe this season, Thorgan Hazard is surely one of the most promising.

The skilful Belgian, brother to first-team star Eden, has been making waves in Germany this season with Borussia Monchengladbach.

With the younger Hazard impressing for Lucien Favre’s men, Monchengladbach chief Max Eberl has admitted that the Borussia-Park outfit want to make his switch permanent.

"I've had a nice talk with Chelsea,” he told Kicker.

“Thorgan is a good kid and he does very well. We are going to see what is possible."

On the face of things, Chelsea may well be tempted to part company with Hazard.

The likelihood of him getting a consistent opportunity in the Stamford Bridge starting XI seems unlikely given the amount of senior players available, even if Hazard continues his recent positive form.

With Financial Fair Play regulations to think off also, a healthy profit on the reported €1 million shelled out by the West London club in 2012 would also appeal to those looking to balance the books.

On the other hands, Thorgan has seemingly all the skill and ability to prosper in the Premier League and Jose Mourinho may want to run the rule over him in the first-team squad before allowing him to leave.

With Eden a key man for the Blues, keeping the global superstar happy will also be a priority, which will surely include keeping younger brother Thorgan on the Blues’ books.
