Ex-Chelsea boss Di Matteo reckons Hazard's departure to Madrid could be postponed to next year
- Chelsea might refuse to let Hazard join Real Madrid, claims Roberto Di Matteo.
- The Blues simply won't be able to replace their main star with two-window transfer ban upheld, insists the former Chelsea manager.
"Who knows about Hazard? Chelsea have a transfer ban so it is going to be very difficult for anybody to leave that they don’t want to leave," Di Matteo told The Sun.
"He’s the player that makes the difference. He can change a game individually and there aren’t many players like that.
"It would be a real shame to lose a player like that. Losing Hazard is not great but I’m not sure it will be that easy for him to leave.
"The club has a transfer ban and letting a top player leave and not being able to replace him, it would be very tough for a top club to buy him. Nobody is bigger than the club. It’s understandable that he may want to experience a different league after being in London for seven years but it might not be this summer."

Why can't our signings be easy, like Barcelona?
