Spanish wingback Cesar Azpilicueta has been the one wearing the Captain’s armband more often at Chelsea during the past two seasons, even though he is the vice-captain. English Centreback Gary Cahill took over the role with John Terry left the club after the 2016/17 season, with Azpilicueta as his deputy.

When he assumed his role as manager at the beginning of the season, Maurizio Sarri confirmed that Gary Cahill will remain as Chelsea’s permanent club captain and that Cesar Azpilicueta will take on the duties when the Englishman is not on the pitch. However, Sarri has handed the captaincy around at times, with Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard both having the armband at times during pre-season, while Willian was the skipper in the Europa League win over PAOK.

Chelsea have reportedly started to consider naming Eden Hazard as the club’s captain next season. The future of Hazard remains up in the air with less than two years remaining on his contract and Real Madrid known to hold a long-standing interest in the Belgium international. However, the managerial uncertainty at the Bernabeu could play into Chelsea’s favour when it comes to negotiating fresh terms with the playmaker, with it unclear who will become the long-term replacement for Julen Lopetegui.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea may look to tempt Hazard into staying at Stamford Bridge with the incentive of becoming the new skipper, a role which is currently held by Gary Cahill. The Englishman could leave the Blues at the end of the campaign and while Cesar Azpilicueta currently deputises when the centre-back is not selected, the club captain role would be available.

Hazard is allegedly waiting for things to become clearer at the European champions before making a decision.

Should hazard be offered the captain’s band? Share your thoughts.
