Thorgan Hazard joins brother Eden at Chelsea

Jul 24, 2012 1 Comment by

The transfer is a done deal! Thorgan Hazard will be joining his older brother Eden Hazard in Chelsea.

Thorgan Hazard is said to be talented, and some dare to compare his talent to his older brother. Chelsea’s scouting reports were good, and the club decided not to wait 3 years before his transfer value could get pricey.

FACT IS: Thorgan has played already 47 games for the national youth teams of Belgium, starting when he was 15 years old.

So, will we see both Hazards playing for Chelsea this season?
The answer is no
. Thorgan has very little experience in a first division club, and only played with his club Lens, in second division in France.

Just like the transfer of Kevin de Bruyne, these transfers are mainly done for future purposes.

Just like the transfer of Kevin de Bruyne, these transfers are mainly done for future purposes. These players still need to grow, become a solid value in their team. And after that, they need to give added value for the first team of Chelsea.
This will take a lot of time, and there are no guarantees, the player(s) will make actually it later. It could even be doubted if Thorgan Hazard will be borrowed by another team in the Barclays Premier League at this point. A team in France, or Belgium would be a good option to gain playtime, and evolve his talent.

Both brothers come from a very sporty family, and there are still 2 other brothers. Kylian Hazard is 16 years old, and is in the same youth academy in Lille, where Eden was formed. The youngest brother, Ethan Hazard, 7 years old, seems a bit too young to be scouted yet =)

Thorgan Hazard is currently 19, both left and right footed, and plays behind the attackers. His market value is estimated at 500.000 Euro, but it is expected that Lens didn’t let him go for less than 1 Million Euro, knowing his talent, history in the national youth teams, and the fact that Chelsea is not a very poor club.

Welcome to a new start in Chelsea, Thorgan! Eden Hazard twittered already he is delighted to see his brother there.

We wonder which Belgian talent is next on Chelsea’s shortlist? Dennis Praet? ;-)
