Interesting development happening here. Hard to imagine CP without a long-term home. 2 yrs here, 2 years there - doesnt seem fair to his ability.

Bad luck with injuries, and Chelsea has been doing fine without him. Sucks for him, but if he gets over his injury bug, then he'll stick long term with a top notch club.

he got injured at the exact wrong time
EPL is probably still the best place for him (but joining Marsch in Liepzig might be fun) - but i'd prefer him fulltime on Tottenham or even lower on the table that the ocaissional match with chelsea

Where would Barca even get the funds to do such a transfer? I'm sure Chelsea wouldn't let him go for free.

Maybe RM swoop in, send Hazard back to Chelsea and pair him with Vinicius and Benzema (and Mbappe or Haaland). I saw something recently about Hazard and possibly going back to Chelsea.

Id like to see him at RM as well.

Ugh.. As good as their history is, that's like the EPL equivalent of a pit of sadness these days.

and yet, since Dec 6 2020, they have the 3rd most points in EPL.

they sit currently 5th

Arteta is loading up on youth and players that fit - TA is a defensive mid that would do fine there. ( or Tot'num )

Thank you for this, you nailed it. Arsenal have done a complete 180° after the first three games of the season while fielding the youngest team in the entire EPL. If he is looking for consistent playing time, Arteta has shown all year that he isnt afraid to play younger players if they show enough to make it on the pitch. Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Nuno Tavares, Ben White, Gabriel, etc etc. All under 25, all with consistent playing time this season.

Guess I need to update my thinking on them. I didn't even realize they were in 5th tbh. The podcast I get much of my EPL info from hasn't really covered them much lately it seems.
