Hazard downed tools the season before last, (along with the rest of their team). If we somehow got the chance to buy him, should we have turned it down?I believe we were interested in him at one point but I think he has exposed himself this season.
His workrate is quite slack anyway but he really seemed to down tools this year, I do also think last season was a purple patch that he will unlikely ever repeat. If we can, I'd have Lemar over him easily.
Agreed, a fit and healthy Lamela would be worth more to us than Mahrez.40-50 million for Mahrez!?! 50 million for van Dijk?!? This is getting more than out of hands.
We have Lamela and I think he is better than Mahrez. So I'd rather see Lamela back next season (really hope he will!) than us splashing insane amount of money for Mahrez.
Is it just that one season though? Take out the title winning season and see how he's done.
I said this last summer and got slated. He is clearly a one season wonder, doesn't have the work rate to succeed with us and is just generally a bit of a dick like the majority of the leicester teamThere's something about Mahrez that screams 'one hit wonder'.
He was very poor this season and it's not as if he's particularly young.
I'd also be very concerned about his work ethic (although I don't know what his stats are in that regard) and I'm not really sure he necessarily offers us the pace that we're clearly looking for.
So for the sort of fee they're looking at...it's a no from me.
Sigh, am not going to convince you, obviously. Mahrez averaged more interceptions in both 2015-16 ans 2016-17 than Eriksen, Lamela (15-16) and Alli and more tackles than all bar Lamela. To say he doesn't close down or can't do it is bonkersSo is judging him on one season out of six.
