REVEALED: Chelsea give up Hazard option as part of BVB Pulisic deal

Chelsea have scrapped their option for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Thorgan Hazard.

BILD says in talks with Borussia Dortmund to sign Christian Pulisic, Chelsea agreed to write off their first refusal clause for Hazard.

BVB see Hazard as a replacement for Pulisic and weren't prepared to sell the American to the Blues unless they agreed not to compete for the Belgium international.

Hazard confirmed recently, "Yes, Chelsea has a say in what happens to me. But that's governed by the clubs."

However, the Blues will now allow BVB to move for the midfielder without any counter offer.
