Could Thorgen Hazard’s future could lie back at Chelsea?

Thorgan Hazard put in an impressive performance for Borussia Mönchengladbach against Barcelona on Wednesday night, putting his side ahead on 34 minutes after outsprinting Jordi Alba to get on the end of Mahmoud Dahoud’s cross. Eden Hazard’s little brother left Chelsea for Germany in 2014 but could his future lie back at his former club?

Impressive performances have put Hazard in the shop window

Hazard left Stamford Bridge without playing a single first team game, first to Zulte Waregem on loan and then to Mönchengladbach, again initially on loan but soon after on a permanent deal. Gladbach coach André Schubert has given the young Belgian, now 23, a sense of confidence in his play and he’s now one of the most important players in the side. On current form it won’t be long before bigger clubs across Europe take note.

Chelsea hold a €15 million buy-back option

Chelsea, Hazard’s former club, have the right to buy him back for just €15 million, though according to Bild that clause expires at the end of this calendar year. When Chelsea sold Hazard to Gladbach they decided to keep an eye on him and his future development and his recent form suggests that they might well consider bringing him back in the not too distant future.
