Chelsea plan Hazard swap deal for Bonucci

October 10, 2016

Desperate to shore up his new defence, the Blues coach is planning a raid on his former club and will use the Belgium star as bait

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is planning to use Eden Hazard as a makeweight in his efforts to bring Leonardo Bonucci to Stamford Bridge, according to the Sun.

The defender was the cornerstone of Conte’s Juventus team that lifted three consecutive Serie A titles under his tenure before he left for Italy in 2014.

And with the Blues looking far from convincing in defence, he would be prepared to dispense with the Belgium star in order to convince Juve to sell their lynchpin.

The Bianconeri are keen on a big cash deal plus Cesc Fabregas, but Conte believes he can save transfer funds by sending Hazard to Turin instead of the midfielder.
