The Belgian captain jokingly claimed that he worth more than former Barcelona forward Neymar who was signed for a world record fee of €222 million by Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
When asked how much he thought would be his worth at a press conference, Hazard told HNL, “I don’t know how much I would cost. Maybe €300 million? It all depends on the market.
“Neymar is a Brazilian, has a lot of potentials, is a year younger than I am and played for Barcelona.
“A transfer fee also depends on your contract and on a number of other things. We will see how much I am worth if I ever get a transfer.
“I didn’t really think about a transfer much. Although maybe it did cross my mind [that I could have joined Barcelona following Neymar’s transfer]. A lot has happened this transfer window. That’s a good thing.
“Every time someone leaves a club, other players could come in to replace them. If it isn’t me, then at least it’s someone else. But I am feeling well at Chelsea. I have just started my sixth season here and I am enjoying myself.”
Hazard is yet to feature for Chelsea this season after a lengthy lay off due to an ankle injury, but he is back to his fitness and may play Chelsea’s next game against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
