    He used to. I think the Poch years took a lot out of him.

    I think that injuries (which happen to lots of playas) and becoming a multi-media fashionista took his eye off his day job,

    How much do you see is wanting? I'm finding that a difficult to put my finger on. He's invalidly not at the height of his firm so the figure will be lower than it would have been in 2017 yet he's still got a lot of name recognition.

    It doesn't seem like we are in a rush to move him on so maybe unless a fee we find irresistible comes in he'll stay and have a chance to get more involved and win back a place

    I would think £40m
    And I don’t see us flexing too much on whatever fee we want as the club can afford to be picky

    I'm of the same mind. From PSG rumours 2 months ago, to Leeds rumours now. That would feel like an awful waste of talent. Mind you, I can't see much news about it apart from a local Leeds news website - it doesn't seem to be any more than a player they "might" go for. Unless of course we have some real ITK in @nayenezgani's mate.
    I still hold onto the hope he can come good for Mourinho but it's not looking promising.

    The gambling rumour is worrying. It doesn't ring true and I want to say he doesn't come across as the "type". But of course there is no such thing as a "type". I just hope for his sake it's nothing more than scurrilous rumour.

    Guardian football weekly did a pod on gambling in the game. It's rife. And this week they have one on mental health and footballers. Both worth a listen to understand more what goes on.

    Given that he spends his spare time associating with ASBOs and people who would be in prison if they hadn't lucked into football, I'd be very surprised if he didn't have a number of bad habits.

    Obviously that's not the same as addiction, but you won't go far wrong judging a man by the company he keeps.

    You referring to Dele?
    His mate who he is best buds with is nothing like that. He is very middle class

    I'm referring to the reports of who he holidayed with in the summer.

    The other players...
    who knows
    Again it’s just reports
    I’m not going to criticise or defend him for his choice of friends as I’ve heard of better players having worse friends and still being amazing
    He hasn’t complained once so far which in this day and age i find amazing, and more so when you consider the profile of him. That can only bode well if he does get it rIght when he gets his chance

    I think it is generally known that right now he has some lifestyle choices to make. I think he is a fantastic player, and I also think he is a genuinely decent bloke. Sadly that isn't always enough for you to fulfill potential. Here's hoping he makes the right choices, continues working hard and taking whatever help is on-hand from everyone and elevates back to being the incredible player he is.
    FWIW, this nonsense that he doesn't fit into Mourinho's "style" is just that, nonsense IMO. In fact, I think there are elements which would suit him greatly.

    Went down a rabbit hole earlier having seen Roy1983s username crop up and ended up seeing this post from towards the end of the 18/19 season (the one which prompted Hazards move to Madrid)

    Funny what a "bad" season and one in the wilderness can do to peoples perception of a player
