Manchester United have been linked with a surprise move for Belgian star Eden Hazard.
This interest is surely heading the same way too, as it is hard to believe the Blues would sanction a deal to sell the winger to the Red Devils, still considered competitors despite the disappointing performances of both sides this season.
Hazard was last year's player of the year, but has floundered this campaign, failing to score a single Premier League goal.
This has led to question marks over his desire, and whether he harbours ambition of a move away from Stamford Bridge.
A potential move to Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain will be more likely than United, despite the face Chelsea sold them Juan Mata in January 2014.
Perhaps the biggest red flag over a potential deal is the possibility that Jose Mourinho could take over from Louis van Gaal as United boss, after his sacking by Chelsea earlier this season.
Hazard's poor form played a part in this, and if he were appointed then it could make attempts to sign Hazard more difficult rather than easier.
Here is a look at how Manchester United fans reacted on Twitter to the rumour...
Hazard for £65m is nuts even at his very best. Got a feeling he'll go to PSG for an easier life! Defo not #MUFC— SpenceMUFC (@spencemin) January 8, 2016
Hazard is not in the best form but I would take Hazard at #MUFC in the blink of a eye. You would be stupid not to.— JackMUFC (@JackjohnMUFC) January 8, 2016
Don't thinks #mufc will even try to bid to for Hazard. Madrid calling and coming to us now when rejected us when SAF wanted him? No chance— Kamrul Jamal (@KamrulJamal) January 8, 2016
