Not wanting to sign with Chelsea would sound silly right now considering they just won the Premier League title, but one of their players interestingly enough had second thoughts before joining the Blues.
He had signed with the Blues for £32m in 2012, but the Champions League enticed him at first.
Midfielder Eden Hazard was reluctant to leave behind French squad Lille, but he revealed that Didier Drogba convinced him to transfer to the Premier League.
“I was flattered. In my head I wasn’t going to sign, but in the end I was very pleased with my choice,” Hazard said to Metro.
Hazard’s leap of faith was quickly rewarded as his third season with the Blues turned out to be the charm. The Blues midfielder currently has 14 goals, which ranks second on the team behind Diego Costa for the 2014-15 season.
The 24-year-old also took home the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award this season.
Hazard scored the only goal for Chelsea in their game against Swansea City, which clinched the Premier League title for them.
