Hazard has suffered a dismal spell at Real Madrid since leaving Chelsea for £130m in 2019 and has scored just one league goal, with his spell blighted by injuries, poor displays and severe criticism from fans and the Spanish press.
He will go down as a club legend with Chelsea having netted 110 times and helping them win six major trophies, but supporters may be on the fence about whether it's the right time for a homecoming.
Chelsea fan RORY JENNINGS gives his verdict on the possibility of Hazard making a swift return to the Bridge after just two years in LaLiga.

Chelsea are reportedly weighing up a stunning £51million move to bring Eden Hazard back
'Don't go back' is a mantra I think is generally worth adhering to.
It's not exclusive to football – it can be applied to jobs and ex-girlfriends – but I also think it works especially well where footballers are concerned. There are of course exceptions and caveats (Paul Pogba to Manchester United springs to mind), but generally speaking, I think it's best avoided.
However, the romanticism that exists in football is something that I hold very dear, and therefore the thought of bringing back any of Chelsea's heroes to Stamford Bridge awakens something within me. But that doesn't make it rational or sensible.
The correct thing for Chelsea is not to go near Eden Hazard. He has scored five goals in two seasons, he can't keep fit, Real Madrid are desperate to get rid and I think you could make a case that Christian Pulisic or Callum Hudson-Odoi are better options.
It would be ridiculous for Chelsea to sign an unfit player who Real Madrid want to offload
What message would his arrival send to the young players trying to impress Thomas Tuchel?
