LATEST: Aubameyang medical pencilled for Wed AM. Earlier today all set for Batshuayi loan to Dortmund, Giroud to Chelsea for £20m. But #CFC via Marina Granovskaia now trying to drive price down so #AFC minded to end talks & send Giroud to #BVB - though unclear if he’d agree to it
This was Marca a month ago. Since then a deal hasn’t really come closer: still a considerable gap between what Real Madrid want to offer and what Chelsea have in mind. Eden Hazard’s future is still in Marina Granovskaia’s hands and no comprimises as yet. #cfc
✍🏻 That’s another transfer window over. 🙏🏻 He had a Spanish dream, but Eden Hazard will start his 7th Premier League season with Chelsea. That was pretty clear a week ago. Chelsea unwilling to negotiate with Real Madrid. Marina Granovskaia rejected all approaches. #cfc
