'Seen it all now', 'Yeah right': Some Everton fans react to hearing they now lead race for £25.5m star
A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to react to surprise reports that the Toffees are one of the sides who lead the race to sign Eden Hazard from Real Madrid.
Los Blancos are looking to offload the Belgian after a nightmare spell in the Spanish capital. It is claimed that he earns £416,000-a-week at the Bernabeu.
He has only scored five goals in over 50 appearances for the club in all competitions. Nevertheless, there are sides interested in offering him a route back to the Premier League.
According to the Sunday Mirror, Everton and West Ham lead the race to sign the 30-year-old. Madrid meanwhile, have dropped their asking price from £43 million to £25.5 million. They would also accept a loan that included a £21 million obligation to buy in the summer.
It is a surprise to see Everton linked. Another report over the weekend claimed that the Toffees want to sell Jordan Pickford just to raise funds to spend in January.
‘Good one’: Everton fans react to links with Eden Hazard
And it would certainly appear that a lot of Everton fans would not be pleased if Hazard ended up on Merseyside. Of course, they suffered from bringing James Rodríguez in from Real Madrid a couple of years ago.
James was outstanding on a couple of occasions. However, it seems fair to say that the gamble did not pay off before his departure. And with that, there are concerns that signing Hazard could play out just as poorly.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Everton fans make of the links…
30 years old in January with a fairly poor history of injury. £5m more than enough for him.
