Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has shown Roman Abramovich that he can solve Eden Hazard January transfer issue after a dazzling cameo off the bench for the United States men’s national team.
Hazard moved to the Santiago Bernabeu the summer that Pulisic finally arrived, handing the youngster the number ten shirt as a parting gift.
The 23-year-old is sure that he isn’t looking to imitate Hazard’s legacy.
“I definitely looked up to [him],” Pulisic said of Hazard. “I am not comparing myself to him in any way or trying to be like him.
“I am my own player, doing my best for this club. Obviously, he was a massive player for this club and it is an honour to hear comparisons like that, but I still have a way to go.”
Hazard had endured quite a tough time at Real Madrid, due to injuries, with the reports linking him with a return to the Stamford Bridge.
However, Abramovich isn’t willing to pay more than £34 million for Real Madrid’s number seven, handing Pulisic a saving grace in his bid to ignite a Stamford Bridge renaissance.
